Re: [Hammock Camping] Re: female 'pee bottles' was Panda High Peak as a sleeping bag to use in a hammock
- Les lined a hole with plastic and put a cup of urine in the middle, then
covered the hole with clear plastic. As it evaporated, it dripped down the
clear plastic into the plastic lining the hole. He collected it from there
and it was pure water. I think I heard somewhere that the same principle
works with salt water, but I'm not sure.

- I meant to say I agree with Tod and like the way Aris stated: "I think
a show that purports to give useful survival tips, but fails in the
quest for sensationalism is a dangerous program."
It doesn't take much to entertain me but I can't watch this show.
