I have a social weekend with a BBQ with friends in Inverness the weather looks great and the sun is out after last weeks great weather in the sun in Skye. I was looking through my kit from Skye and my water container (my platapus) needed a good clean, you have to ensure they are cleaned regularly, otherwise you get all kinds of bugs in it! You cannot drink to much just now and with the ground so hard the water flushes of quickly. Even after a bit of rain there may be a shortage of water high up (like Skye last weekend) Make sure you carry enough water for the day, slowly, slowly in the heat. Watch out if you are starting a fire for your BBQ there is a big risk just now, PLEASE MAKE SURE IT IS OUT and all the rubbish is taken away.
You can put the camelback, platypus in the freezer, between walks, to stop any bacteria forming.
Yes I read that mate bought the cleaning kit , thanks for that.
