Re: Purifying Water

Hi Andy,
Tablets or Iodine for filtering your water is good, if you can handle the 
taste (some people like it more than others). The mid-day fill up thing 
is  a good idea. One that works for my husband and myself.
Don't forget to run your collected water through a bandanna to remove all 
the floaties. :)
