My Locale Western US
About Me Mostly 2 to 3 day loops, with a couple weeklong trips too. Debating whether to go 2 weeks or more. Lightening up but with an eye towards toughness and hiking convenience (secure drying on the trail. quick set up, etc...), but also a bit better food (and beverage) for most overnights. Then again I might want to do a spartan "fast n'light" overnight ... and the gear closet grows.
I'll update my gear list tomorrow ...

Re: A bit of Giardia with a Chlorine Dioxide chaser
I'd think stomach pH and then the other chemical happenings in the small intestine would alter ingested chlorine dioxide.

Other considerations..
Remembering the home-building book I referenced a couple years ago, it may be helpful to ask what you want a space to do and make circles on paper noting the function. Then research the square foo...
