Interesting... just be sure that it is a warm and gentle dry, though.

comment What is the safest way to purify water?
@BenCrowell that's a fair point - hygiene and health in the wild (and at home) are pretty holistic.

comment What is the safest way to purify water?
@BenCrowell: as per my answer - it's just safer to assume tainted sources and work from there, you're not going to degrade the water quality. A hand-pumped ceramic filter is pretty light-weight, and purification tablets are negligible.

@BenCrowell what about those backcountry areas that haven't been well studied? Do you have a map of the well studied areas?

comment What is the safest way to purify water?
"where mother nature's water has been tainted by man-made waste" - arsenic and other heavy metals can (and do) occur naturally, so stating "man-made" here promotes the false idea that "natural" is safe

comment What can I do to help relieve joint pain in fingers after climbing?
They're both the same family of drug, and taking full doses of both at the same time can lead to liver damage.
