anyone have a source for small pill bottles that could be used for over the counter meds? I hate to buy those pre-packaged 1 dose/2 pill packs that are so overpriced for that convenience.

Someone posted about using Glad Press'n Seal Wrap to repackage meds in over in the "Around the Campfire" section. They even took pics. Seems like a pretty good idea to me.

Otherwise, I'd check ebay. I've seen them for sale there.

What size are you interested in? I have some that are about 0.5 inches in diameter by 3.75 inches long that are water proof. If interested, pm me.

CVS Pharmacy here has little stainless pill carrier/keyring thingies. They won't hold a lot of meds, but they have a rubber "o"-ring seal and are waterproof. Mine holds matches, fishing stuff, a water purifying tablet and snare wire.

Nalgene makes some small containers, all the way down to 1/4 oz.

that was kind of what I was looking for, but EP sells them fairly inexpensively, but shipping is a whopping 7.50 now -- kind of steep when the item is such a small one

those may work out pretty well, can always order some other stuff from REI so the shipping won't feel like such a big bite for a little item, may check Gander Mountain locally since they carry a lot of Nalgene items, thanks!

So, you order a couple of them, and get a few other things as well. <img src="/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />
