    29 March 2010, Muskrat Creek Shelter
    I got started late this morning. The shuttle left late. My start time was around 9:45. I arrived at the shelter around 4 pm.

It is suppose to rain tonight and the temps are already pretty darn cold. I took my pain killers and a sleeping pill a little ...

  5. Water Purification

    Trying to think what would be best here. I've been considering the UV light sticks, as well as micropur, but those are kinda expensive. I also have an old katadyn water pump. The newest models are around a pound, but I think my old one is a little heavier. Any suggestions? I guess I could post this as a thread, but haven't figured out how to do that yet
