I don't know if anybody mentioned this one yet, but flavored drink mixes are
a lifesaver on the PCT. 

When you're drinking up to two gallons of water a day the "taste" of just
plain water can get really old, especially trail water which really isn't
that plain, but has kind of a "leafy" taste.

I love drinking out of a fresh mountain spring as much as the next guy, but
after fifty or a hundred days... I was dying for a Coke, or chocolate milk
or deer piss, or anything that wasn't water!

We traded flavor packets on the trail like prisoners do with cigarettes, and
spent a lot of time mixing and matching different flavors to discover new

My favorite is 1 Crystal Light Lemonade + 1 Koolaid Orange + 1 liter of
water. Very refreshing.

See y'all at the K.O.
