    A recent USFS study found typhus in the stagnant waters of the Green Ridge Trail. I hope you didn't get any in your mouth, eyes, open sores or other orifices.

    We called it fresh soup, in NZ there are dead sheep in about every river and we were told as kids that 100yds down stream the water will be fine , i guess it was , i'm still alive [but maybe that explains a few things] :poser


    It would seem the bottled water sellers have done a good job of scaring the shit out of everyone .Who would have thought 20 years ago there would be money in selling little bottles of water.
