Wow! there is an idea.  I don't think my GI tract would ever be up to
drinking from a cattle pond without a filter of some sort.

For my CDT hike of NM I am planning on using a StriPEN with a pre-filter.

My parents were giving shit-shakes to repopulate G.I. tracts while in med
school back in the '50s, but here we are 60 years later, and it's fashion.

The takeaway for hikers is, leave your damn water filters at home,
strengthen your immune system to what it should be through daily incremental
exposure, and live a boatload more healthily....


OH, and lighten your dang backpack.
