there are many ways to determine the volume of a given bag - some less scientific than others.

we decided we would measure in cereal boxes!

the ruck's sac, for example, can hold 3 cereal boxes!

Organic, organic, and a triple!

I like this method. Then again, I like cereal.

yes, rainbow rings! my son loves them - not so much for the sugar but because they are colorful. they don't contain artificial colors and have the healthier sugars, so i don't feel guilty buying them. :)

heh, you don't have to explain rainbow rings to me! i'm a kids' cereal person myself; i love 'em! i'm also a fan of their cosmic cocoas and peanut butter pows. ;) looks like i should get a ruck's sac and i can carry all three home with me!

I mostly measure volume either in *days* (I realize this is not a unit used for volume in physics class), or *books.* (Basically: "If I visit Powell's (http://www.powells.com), orGreen Apple (http://www.greenapplebooks.com/cgi-bin/mergatroid/index.html), will I be able to carry what I bought to the train station / airport?")
