If you have a cabin, trailer or lake house that you use for vacationing in remote areas, getting clean sources of water out to your house can be a real challenge.
One great idea is to get a camping water filter. You need to have some sort of reliable source of water to use for your family, or group that may come to a remote area without running water.
You can get water filters that you pump a bottle of water through, by hand, as needed, or you can get big camp-sized gravity-drip water filters that can provide water needs for several people over an extended period of time, with a minimum of manual work from the people who will be consuming the water.
These kinds of outdoor use water filters are used on boats, campgrounds, and disaster recovery sites (think of the Earthquake in Haiti).
It's a great alternative to bringing in your own water, or water bottles. It makes you more independent and self-reliant. You don't want to be limited in where you can go or what you can do by not having the ability to access a reliable clean water source there.
As a kid growing up, I relished going to a relative's lake cabin and canoeing on the lake and fishing. We didn't hunt, but I'm sure that would have been fun, too. There's just something wonderful and refreshing about being outdoors. And it's great for kids to unplug and experience nature from a young age.
I prided myself on the idea that we were out in nature and living off the land. Of course we weren't - there was a grocery store down the road. But many people's cabins are sufficiently remote that it's not easy to make a trip into town, and it's not at all convenient or safe to run out of water.
That's why a camping water filtration system for the family makes a lot of sense. You can get a group-size Expedition water filter that is great for families, river rafting tour groups, hunting cabins, and the like.
