Wild camping can often mean your water supply is a stream or a tank.
You might want to carry an active, pump-style water filter, some purification tablets and maybe a gravity filter system.
You drink the local water at your peril, not necessarily because of micro-organisms, although there's a huge risk to making life miserable for two or three weeks or your tour very short, but to help remove trace elements your digestive system has never encountered. The tablets will only work on organisms. Boiling water does not remove trace contaminants.
You can research the cleanliness and sanitation level of municipal water supplies on the interwebs, just takes a bit of looking.
Hi guys, next April I will be buying my Surly LHT and will do some overnight and long weekend Touring next Summer. I plan on Touring the US in 2015(I'm in Canada)I'm not sure what I'll be spending each day. I will camp and use Warmshowers alot, but is $20-$30 per day for food acceptable? How long could I go with around $10,000? Would that last a year? Or perhaps see the US for 6 Months then go to Europe for a few Months?
Thank you for all of your input. I have signed up and if you are ever traveling on the plains of Eastern New Mexico and need a warm shower, soft bed and a cold beer please give me a shout. Thanks to all.
I have a GORE ALP-X jacket - Very lightweight, highly breathable and waterproof. Also have GORE gloves and socks for very cold/wet days.
Nope, go ahead!
