My Locale Colorado Rockies
About Me I'm 45 years old, 6'4" and 195 lbs. I've backpacked in the Colorado Rockies, the Wasatch and Uinta mountains, and in Zions National Park. I mountain bike in the Colorado Rockies. I've kayaked in Yellowstone and on Flaming Gorge, and rafted the Green, Colorado and Snake rivers. My trips are usually a week long or less. I love to hike wherever I can. I'm an Assistant Scout Master and I'm often out with the Scouts. My immediate goal is to thru-hike the Colorado trail. I've lived in Utah, Ohio, Illinois, Argentina, California, and Colorado.

Re: KlearWater
Michael, I'm sorry I can't remember the specific source but I read a WHO report some time ago about treating water with bleach. The short of it is that in order to kill the nasties so much ...

Re: Re: HI hiking
I could be wrong, but I recall there being a hut on the Haleakala trial. I did a day hike of this down into the crater that I highly recommend. I underestimated the hike out because of the volcanic...

Re: Re: Warm Drinks
Wayne, another great drink from my childhood that I haven't had in some time. Postum or Pero are two others. I grew up in Utah and those were thought of by some as "Mormon coffee".
