I drink way too much Coca-Cola. But I manage to do without when on the trail. A hiking buddy surprised me with a can of Coke on the forth day of a seven day hike on Isle Royale. He had wrapped the can with duct tape to conceal it.

DUDE !! Your image is like 4,288px × 3,216px (scaled to 600px × 450px) and 2,964.15 KB.

Even with my better than 12 MB download speed, your one picture takes a LONGggggg time to load/ get resized etc and drags the whole thread down.
