We talk about Giardia and Cryptosporidium, etc., during the first 15 minutes of this podcast. The remaining time we spend talking about the new gear we’ve purchased and gear we still think we need. The previous week we drank water from the cattle pond, and since cattle host all sorts of nasty protozoa, bacteria, and viruses, we started getting concerned about the filtering system we used. It was the “crypto” had me paranoid. (Luckily, none of us ever got sick.)
We finish this podcast discussing the Grand Tetons, the most picturesque string of mountains I’ve personally ever seen. Just south of Yellowstone, just north of Jackson, Wyoming. We also pose the question: Should we hike SNP from North to South, rather than South to North?
Because we’ve recorded two episodes ahead, I know what’s coming up next week. We answer this last question by looking at the maps next week. Studying maps is a good time. That’s next week. Where is Big Meadows? Halfway? Closer to the North? We’ll figure it out next week.
Also, dad has made a final decision about his using a tarp shelter or a tent. That’s the last bit of this podcast.
