Two and a half weeks isn’t nearly enough time here.
There’s still so much to do and see.
So many shrines, temples, cities, people, places.
I want to live here so badly.
I want to be part of this whirlwind of wonderment.
Sorry guys I just care about bottled water a lot, especially now that I live in one of the areas being bled dry by it
So an average adult human is supposed to drink 2 litres of water a day to stay healthy, not a lot of people do that but for the sake of the math here let’s say you do. If your tap water is so shady you refuse to drink it, that means you burn through two $2.50 one litre bottles of water a day, which amounts to $5. A friend of mine using a portable filter intended to clean 1000 litres of water (I’m not sure what quality of water was used to get that number) said in practical application she got about two months of heavy duty use camping in an area where the water in so thick with decomposing plant matter it’s green and opaque
Assuming in this active, athletic summer camping situation she is also drinking her two litres of water every day, it means her filter cleaned about 120 litres of totally raw and untreated muddy lake water for $20. That same amount of bottled water would run you $300 at $2.50 per litre bottle, so using a filter to treat the dirty water instead of resorting to bottles saved her $280, sixty plastic bottles, and 240 litres of wasted water in the “three litres of water to produce one litre of bottled water" exchange.
Bottled water companies are completely devastating California, if you don’t trust your tap water please, please invest in a filter, carry a reusable bottle with you, you will save so much money and help keep California wet enough to continue providing the rest of the country with the produce they grow here.
