    No I think Doctari won an Immunity challenge to the stuff.

    As for the other, I'm not listening to anything that I can't fix.
    Is that too much to ask? Girls with frikkin' lasers on their heads?

    Sorry

    2 years ago in the Wind Rivers of Wyoming ( my first hammock trip) 4 of us went. We all got our water from exactly the same sources every time. 1 of us got sick, 3 didn't. The one that got sick( Giardia) used one of those filters that goes on the end of your nalgene bottle. The other three used Steripen sometimes, iodine sometimes.

    The next year the guy who got sick went loaded for bear with his own pump/purifier. The rest of us (3) used Steripen exclusively. No problems for any one that year.

    Yeah I need to get my steri-pen replaced out.

    I think I am going with a gravity filter at some point.

    I've been reading a lot of articles lately that attribute the big G more to our own habits and the contact we have with each other when in the back country as opposed to the water sources. I am no scientist, but the articles make for interesting reading.

    You're right, Big E. A lot of giardia can be attributed to our own lack of personal hygeine in the backcountry, especially in regard to how we clean ourselves after defacating and disposing of said waste properly. Everyone can do their part by cleaning their hands thoroughly with some kind of alcohol-based sanitizer after going poo-poo on the trail and disposing of the wate properly, according to LNT guideleines.

    By the way, we hittin' RRG again after tax season?

    I believe that too, I just didn't have contact with anyone. I am usually pretty good with the whole hand cleaning thing.

    Give me plenty of notice and I would be up for another trip down to your neck of the woods.

    I'd love to hit the Gorge a couple more times before my move to NC in the spring. I'm planning a trip to RRG for the end of March with a friend and would love to get a group together for one more trip as well. If anyone's game, give me a yell, especially anyone who knows the Indian Staircase route.
