Do you have any recommendations for how to purify drinking water when camping?
Boiling water is a simple and effective way to purify water for drinking. There's nothing to it: Collect the water into a pot or other container, put it on the camp stove, and boil it at a full boil for at least one minute (at least 3 minutes at altitudes above 6,562 feet). https://iwaterpurification.com/best-water-purification-tablets/

Sawyer's water filter with pump was a God send for me for time and weight. Could fill my hydration reservoir in 2 minutes from a creek in the path.
