Please excuse this OT post

I can't help it. It's pretty exciting news for BGT. We've been bumping along
with just under 100,000 unique visitors a month for a few months now.

We finally broke through.

Unique visitors for June: 100,353 !!!

Not bad for an idea that started on this list 7 years ago and done by all
volunteers and having no money involved.

RE: Re: Filtering ( Hiker filter vs. Hiker Pro filter )

Without the "protector" you have a Hiker filter but with it you have a Hiker
Pro filter. Without a lot of care the Hike filter works pretty well and
doesn't clog. I have not tried sucking water out of a cow track but on
flowing trickles and building a little settling pool I do ok with the Hiker
I have and it not clogging. Now that is using the little prefilter on the
"dirty" water hose that will sink the prefilter and still float it off
bottom.

Re: (BGT) Please excuse this OT post

Congrats Jerry and BGT. Just think of all those backpackers getting
worthwhile information. And you do review some lightweight gear,
don't you? :o) Well done!

Re: Filtering ( Hiker filter vs. Hiker Pro filter )

For what it's worth; something some of my friends like to do is to
use a rubber band to hold a paper coffee filter around that "acorn"
that acts as a coarse pre-filter at the start of the raw water hose.
It's an easy thing to do and it does give a little more pre-filtering
as well as being very easy to change when it's dirty.
