LifeStraw Giveaway - Congratulations to the Winners

The winners in each category have been chosen and they will now become the owner of their very own LifeStraw Personal Water Filter.

Here are the winner’s comments in each category:

1. Hiking:

William Bovee -
I always carry a source of water with me when I am hiking. I live in Southern Nevada and hiking excursions can be a day in the desert to a climb at Mt. Charleston. The rule of thumb being 2 is 1 and 1 is none make having a back up source to procure water a life saving item to the kit. Getting lost in an area like Red Rock canyon for instance and running out of water would not be life threatening if you could find your bearings but the pools of water in the area are not the safest in the world to drink. Having the LifeStraw on hand would be a great item to help secure valuable drinking water. In this case lowering the waterline and raising my survival rate.

2. Traveling:

Having traveled to several third world countries, like Peru, India and Malaysia, I'm very familiar with the warning "don't drink the water". Being lightweight and low profile, this straw looks like a no-brainer to keep on hand when bottled water is nowhere to be found. Looks like it would store easily in a pants pocket or daypack. Great giveaway!

3. Preparedness:

I can also see how this would be a great preparedness device. When not hiking, I would keep this with my emergency kit. Many of my camping and hiking stuff stays with my emergency kit - Steripen, firesteel, MSR stove, etc. and this would be a great addition. 

This post was a good reminder that I need to add some sort of filtration system to my gear.

The winners will need to contact me at riverwalker_texas@yahoo.com and furnish an e-mail so that your LifeStraw Personal Water Filter can be shipped directly to you. Your information will be sent directly to my good friends at eartheasy.com who will ship your free LifeStraw Personal Water Filter directly to you.

My congratulations to the winners in each category and a special thank you to everyone for some really great comments on the LifeStraw Personal Water Filter.

Staying above the water line!

There are some more giveaways planned for the future. I think giveaways are a great way to raise the awareness levels of everyone.

Water filtration is something everyone should be prepared for in advance. You never really know when your need for water will make filtering a necessity.

Thanks anon.
