Re: Steripen and thread contamination
If you want an easy solution, get an extra cap for the bottle you are using to treat your water (which should be easy if you're using a gatorade bottle or something). Cut a hole in the top of ...

Re: 2 shelters dilemma
Joe is also coming out with a 2-person version of the Hexamid. That might be a good option for solo use, as you'd get the extra space to help deal with lots of rain. I'm not sure how soon...
