game changer

water is always an issue
drinking water that is

I've got an old katadyn filter bottle that has served me well
ben over at az wanderings did a review of his

which sparked a very interesting discussion 
on a local fishing board
extolling the virtues of the steripen 

since then, I've been fortunate enough to receive a steripen 
at no cost - my favorite way to get things - and it is a deal changer for sure
I never even minded pumping 
but this thing is so easy to use
push a button swish swish swish 
90 seconds later you've got purified water

notice that the steripen slides neatly into the bottle when it is not in use

when I call it a game changer - here's why...
we spent four nights upriver at the ferry and did not bring any water

I must mention a caveat
the wand won't fit in some water bottles
make sure you have at least one that works
I was lucky that way

that's awesome
and thanks buddy for the great gift
I owe you at least one mang

Very cool Mike. I've heard good things about them. Sounds like I need to check it out.
