I dismantled the water filter and found that the ceramic strainer and it's housing were damp. I hadn't stored it correctly.

I boiled the ceramic cylinder for five minutes to kill potential bacteria.

I cleaned the dromedary water bag with "hydration system" cleaning tablets.

I tested the map printed on National Geographic Adventure Inkjet Paper by immersing it in water on three separate occasions for about 10 minutes each time. It passed.


Yeah, that, and - I did a little brushing



while waiting for streaming drips to dry.




I spent time thinking about Billy Blob's Outside Dog and about what courage it takes to be on the outside, unloved, and not go bad or turn mean.

Billy's latest show of painting is real good, you must see it...


even then it is unbelievable.
