The post brought to you by water

So water is a thing out here, for real. You need it, you want, you plan where to find it, but you don’t want to carry it. (I don’t)

I was concerned about water before I left, so I carried a bunch, well 4 liters, which is a lot for me. I was really not wanting to get into the whole filtering water thing right away either. It’s a process with my mini Sawyer water filter.

So the other morning, I hiked down to the water source, a stream. I decided to pour water from my bottle into the Camelback without removing it from my backpack, bad idea. Before I could stop it water was pouring into my pack! Doah! I took off my socks and shoes to quickly cross the stream then spread everything out to dry. By the time I filtered water and got my shoes back on things were more or less dry. Lesson learned.
