Drinking water from a pond

I recently went into the backwoods with a couple of buddies but forgot to take any water.

Fortunately I had my Life Straw which I just got in the mail and I filtered about a gallon of water into

an empty container. This way I don't have to pack around heavy jugs of water. Only need to carry 1

jug of water, then refill it with the LifeStraw as I need it. The water I filter with LifeStraw actually

tastes better than water from Arrowhead or these reverse osmosis vending machines. May tap water

isn't too bad after running it for a few minutes but the Straw makes it even better tasting without running.
