Pathogenic organisms sickness
What is a hiker to do if his water filtration method fails and the hiker falls deathly sick? I've tried to search BPL for a article but could not find one. I've used the MSR Mini Works filter and have never had a problem. But....who knows.Thanks! John
Consider carrying a wide spectrum antibiotic like Levaquin. If that doesn't work in ~2 days, you've probably got a parasite, in which case stay hydrated and c__p your way to the nearest trailhead, then start hitchin' into town.
HAHA...Tom said, "and c__p your way to the nearest trailhead"
Thanks for the advice on the Levaquin. I'll chheck that out.John
