Gannett Peak Trip - Raincover Ice Water

With pains in his feet increasing after attempting to climb Gannett Peak, I figured my hiking partner Jack needed to soak his feet in ice-cold water. However, with only small containers, we appeared to have nothing big enough to contain both the water and his feet. Thinking about how my backpack's raincover repels water, I wondered if it would hold it, as well. It did, and Jack's feet were soothed. However, the mosquitoes were swarming him as he sat in the open air.
