So i am going into Mexico/Central/South America soon and i am worried about when the random times when i will not have money to buy bottled water nor the means to boil any water, are there any water bottles/ purifying systems that you dont have to keep buying weird filter caps or whatever when they run out, i guess like an indefinite filtering system i could carry with me? I have found tons of travelers filter systems but they all say to carry extra filtration pads or whatever...any ideas? help? hand crank filters or am i making this up? ha

I have the MSR microworks. It isnt tiny but its sturdy and you can wash out the element. It screws on a nalgene bottle.

    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.

    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully this will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.

    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $100.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
