Super Easy Gear: Basic Water Filter Straw

Putting together a water filter that's going to get absolutely everything out of the water can be difficult, and should be reserved for long hikes, through hikes and more. If you're just going to be out for a while, or you want something that can work simply as an extra purifier, I think this might do the trick. It's also great just to have at home or in your case in case you're suddenly put into a survival situation.
I tried this a few weeks back and it works great. Makes rain water totally drinkable, which is mainly what I was trying to do since its a great source of water if you can enjoy the taste.
The weary might want to still boil it but overall its gonna work great. Just change the active carbon after about 4 months of use and you can keep going with this for years, really. It won't take out salt, minerals or viruses though so be aware of that. Choose a good source, filter it and your gonna be good to go.

@happyrock Yeah it's not the bust for longe thru hikes that's for sure but it'll do in a lot of situations.
Huh, I've never actually seen one of these before, I guess because I'm usually worried about more than this will filter out on my longer hikes
@fallingwater Definitely. Easy to make, easy to use, no reason not to have it.
Cool! It'd be good to have one of these in your bag just-in-case.

Over the River and Through the Woods
Instead of going to just another amusement park or another social event, why can't we just to northern Cali, Oregon and camp? Walk the nearby towns, hand in hand with no cell phones? Why can't we go hiking or take a trail to a hidden waterfall and spend the day reading and tanning/relaxing together? Spend the nights cuddled up in front of a camp fire and stare up at the stars? Don't even have to talk. Just feel each other's body language. There's so much communication that's silent. Or if we do talk, talk about anything and everything. Tell me your fears. Tell me your insecurities. Tell me what you love about me. Tell me how I can love you better. Tell me everything you want to accomplish. Tell me everything you wish was real. Where did everything fall apart? Tell me why you can't open up anymore? Tell me you love me and you'll never leave.... It'll be our own little world. We can build it anew, just us two, even if it's just for a few hours. I'm extremely surprised and saddened by how many people have never seen an unmolested sky. You need to take it upon yourself to travel for away from all cities, away from small towns, into the small pockets of pure nature and just sit there for a night. Listen to it. Look up and see how small we really are. Look up and see the universe on display. Stars galore. It's quite breathtaking and humbling and relaxing and beautiful. It's easily the best and most enjoyable way to calm yourself down and regain clarify of thought.
3 Fun Outdoor Hairstyle Ideas

Medium to Long Hair: Easy Pulled Back Ponytail If you're hitting the hills or biking this one is perfect. Your hair will look good for hiking photos and it's not to shabby for a post-hike meal at a diner. This is also a no-fuss helmet hairstyle. Buns are too snug. Styling Instruction: 1. Pull the crown of the hair into a ponytail. 2. Then flip hair through the ponytail. 3. Repeat until the hair at the nape is also pulled back. Tip: The ponytail should be stack on top of the previous tail. Curly Hair: Braidout Ponytail I know how annoying it is to have hair brushing on your face. Even though my hair is not voluminous I get pretty irritated by the piecey strands bugging my forehead. This is why i can't do bangs because I'll end up clipping them up most of the time. If you have the same problem, try this cute hairstyle by AlleySinai. She braids the front and bring it back into a half ponytail. You can also pull it back into a ponytail if you want to keep the hair off your shoulder. Short Hair: Fringe Braid Ponytail Same concept with the braidout ponytail except you're only braiding one part of the bang. Then tie the rest of the hair back in a ponytail. This one doesn't have to be perfect There you have it.
