My Locale Maroon Bells
About Me I was more of a BWCA guy but am getting into
backpacking because my wife loves it so much and
then we can do more together. On the sunset side
of 60. In 2008 and 2009 I spent more time backpacking than canoeing.

tapeworm eggs
For Isle Royale you are better off sucking it up and actually filtering. We use a gravity filter and have had no problems in three trips. You really don't want to take a chance with tapeworms.
