Close your eyes and imagine what would happen if you went hiking and your friend kneeled down next to a body of water and scooped the water to their lips. Would you recoil in disgust? Would you offer them a sip from your bottle and explain that they're moments away from certain death or, at best, making GBS threads their guts out?

Then you're gullable and have been tricked by companies that have effectively monetized your fear to sell you their lovely water filters. It's literally the same marketing tactic used by brands that capitalize on human fear - fear of getting old, fear of being left out, fear of death, fear of the 'other.' But the fact is that humans have been drinking water out of puddles and streams for hundreds of thousands of years.

How many times have you walked a dog and seen dog drinking water, and how many times has that dog gotten sick afterwards? It's not because dogs have a stronger immune system! Do you really think cowboys in the 1800s boiled water? Nope! Pirates? Pilgrams? King's, queens, Egyptians, farmers, explorers, conquerors, everyone just drank water that was lying around and they were FINE.

So please next time you go hiking, leave your BPA bottle home. Don't weigh yourself down with your triple microfilter lifestraw. Don't bring bleach. Just drink whatever you see laying around and you'll be fine

In the same vein stop wasting dishwater. It's full of left over nutrients from the food on your plates and you literally just cleaned it along with all your plates and cutlery.

Not just doubly. That poop he eats becomes poop again, so he is reaping infinite returns.

Frankly you'd be wise to put your dog in charge of your investment strategy, as I have.

I had giardia once. I drank from a 'clear mountain stream' and was then punished for my insolence with a solid week of some of the most wicked bouts of rear end in a top hat punishing diarrhea I've ever had. That and just an absolutely goddamn awful sulfur smell and farts. Think gassing yourself so hard in the middle of the night you wake up to puke, followed by another bout of diarrhea.

Eventually, I made some oral rehydration fluid (think incredibly lovely powerade), and guzzled that crap for a while before it finally subsided. It was horrid. I don't care if I found a spring at 11k feet on the very top of a mountain, I'd still drop some bleach in that water before I drank it.

For when lonely nights turn bonely

The reason you see water filters in the PNW is because our deer spread giardia in their poop. If you drink from a glacial fed source above the tree line itís probably okay. Always filter water you take from sources below the tree line because people and animals poop there. I wouldnít drink straight from any trailside sources because people walk in them and poop too close to them. Some glacial fed sources are unsafe because people have pooped in the glacier and left it.

The outdoors here are really just a good way to experience all the different poops of the world because of all the hikers.
