    I just bought a Katadyn, to replace my old pur, but I haven't used it yet. spend little bugger, but the pur finally bit the dust. some tab or something broke inside.
    hope for the best, prepare for the worst, and make hay while the sun shines!

    check out natural antibiotics: Garlic, Echinacea, Colloidal silver, Pau D'Arco. Manuka Honey, and Oregano oil!

    That having been said, check out the Sawyer. For a base camp set-up, the point zero two will actually filter out viruses - and it's back-flushable!
    Sawyer also makes filters that go inline on your camelbak, I'm impressed with them too. They're "on my list", after I stock up on antibiotics.

    How are the B.O.B. coming along?
    I moved my contents into an 85L Dueter pack, My wife gets the camo bag in my pics, also added another "get home bag" to my truck with everything I need to get home if the highway is closed, But not too concerned for the Tacoma not getting me home via, alternate routes (ditch)!

    A truth’s initial commotion is directly proportional to how deeply the lie was believed. When a well-packaged web of lies has been sold gradually to the masses over generations, the truth will seem utterly preposterous and its speaker a raving lunatic.

    Those Becker knives are wicked, damn tough. I'll check out the SOS bars--interesting. I hope they don't plug you up--well then you wouldn't have to use as much T.P.

    They are tasty, dense, lightweight and they don't "plug" you up. Volume is less so you go less. I also have placed caches along 3 different routes to three different bug out locations. Other items of import are staged at each destination.

    The Becker knives really are well made, tough and very reasonably priced compared to many others.
