    You are on it today Trice. Lots of good information that will be useful to all of us who are heading South. Didn't know about the Steripen and gonna get on it right away. Clif bar advice also good. So many of these things are common sense but your experienced comments go beyond simple good sense.

    Ximena texted me to ask me to tell you she values a keen wit more than any other trait and to reward you with this photo:

    The connoisseur of Mexico states will realize that there is more to Jalisco than Ximena Navarette, Lake Chapala, Guadalajara, Tequila, and Puerto Vallarta.

    But they are enough reasons to go and slake your curiosity of that most excellent region of Mexico.

    When I was in Sayulita exxackly two years ago some of Ximena's companeras were doing a fashion shoot there. I never knew that there were Mexican amazons... all of these girls were 6' or pushing it and very shapely.

    Later, when I drove down the coast exploring I got to one resort where a Danish film crew was shooting a reality series, the Danish version of Hotel Paradise, now there are amazons who can put away a fair amount of clear alcohol. They were drinking it out of plastic beach pails.

    Further down the road at the lovely little town of La Manzanilla (North of Manzanillo a bit) I picked up a gentleman 80 years young and gave him a ride to his house. He said normally he would walk but he had just dropped his girl friend off at the bus stop. She was headed back to Guadalajara to do a little shopping. He said that I really should go up there to find a girlfriend, the girls are extraordinary and this 25 year old was wearing him out. Viva Mexico!

    I like the idea of this kit but It appears the filter is just that and not something the steripen would snap in to..

    I also carry a 70 oz CamelBak on trips, but rarely use it because I do the above. I kind of think of it as my emergency supply. If I know bottled water is readily available I may sip from the CamelBak during the day. Refill occasionally with bottled water.
