Our most recent newsletter is now posted on our Voyageur Website. Be sure to check out the special rates on lodging availabilities for this month as well as other interesting items. The product review was especially interesting to me; it was about a SteriPen. The SteriPen is an awesome product that purifies water without chemicals or pumping. It uses ultraviolet light to destroy viruses, bacteria, and protozoa including Giardia and Cryptosporidium. When the SteriPen is placed in a 16 ounce container of clear water it only takes a minute to purify. It’s about the size of a battery operated toothbrush and only weighs 8 ounces. You can use it in the wilderness or in a city where the water isn’t safe to drink. It requires 4-AA batteries and can be purchased from Voyageur for $149.00. I plan on using one the next time I head out into the Boundary Waters.
