Xander has been in Boy Scouts for a couple of years now. Before then, I didn't really know much about how to do anything outdoors. I always tell people, I was born in Oregon, which is a VERY outdoorsy place. But, I grew up without a dad, and my mom never was a person for camping or fishing.
When I was 11 I was sent to "Outdoor School" with my 5th grade class, which was a requirement in public school is Oregon. You HAD to go...as much as I didn't want to.
The little I learned there, like how to make a bunson burner, and how to fit everything into a pack, I did retain, so I am grateful. But, one thing we were never taught was how to get water from a lake, and drink it. Now, as an adult, watching Survivor every week, I know you have to boil the water. But, what if you can't make fire?
LifeStraw Steel is ideal for hiking, backpacking, camping and travel. The 2-stage filtration process removes bacteria and protozoa and reduces organic chemical matter and chlorine.
You seriously, just stick the Lifestraw Steel into the water source and drink like you are using a straw. The filter inside the Lifestraw cleans the water INSTANTLY! This is amazing. You can purchase it here.
Overall, I am so glad that I can use these products with my boys, and in the mean time, I have learned a lot more about the great outdoors.
