Water filters

I've not owned a Steripen but it seems like a good system for treating water in the northern woods. There are better choices than a lifestraw for water filtration for wilderness camping - check out...

If there's any chance of water blowing in, or leaking thru, or a pipe bursting overhead in your storage space - a canoe that is hung with the open side up becomes very heavy very quickly as it fills...

Those islands are pretty tiny, ranging from seagull-vomit encrusted rocks, to wooded islets that really can't absorb human waste. Cole is popular as a mooring with the yachting set - they tie off a...
