    Well... Since the initial mention of this hang, I've found out that I have to move to Colorado in early August. So I'm thinking I'll probably be too busy getting ready for the move to get away in...

    FS: Pur Hiker Water Filter

    Needs a new cartridge (the new Katadyn Hiker cartridges fit), but this'll still save you a few bucks (whole new filter costs $85; new cartridges are $45). $25 shipped.
