Hey Jeff - Peter Kummerfeldt's outdoor videos are excellent. So glad he's willing to share his vast knowledge with us.

Speaking of hydration, there's a new post at about boiling water in a plastic bottle over your campfire. See it there or check the embedded videos at: and

Very cool! Back in Boy Scouts (back in the day!) we used to boil eggs in styrofoam cups over a fire.

These days I use a Platypus to carry my water. I purchased mine several years ago, but if I remember correctly, I think you can use it to boil water as well. Don't take my word on that though, I may not be recalling that correctly.

Anyway, thanks for videos!
