Good questions. And there is an ongoing controversy about filtration, as detailed in the 46er magazine recently. I err on the side of caution.

As far as survival situations in the Adirondacks, I say - drink the water. It's a timing issue. Giardisis takes a week or so to develop symptoms after exposure. You will rarely be stuck out there for more than a week, unless you made several mistakes. And if you made enough mistakes to be stuck for more than a week, you will have lot's of additional problems that may be worse than being sick.
