Hiking Hazards - Water Safety

A note about water bottle safety. Bacteria loves to grow in your water bottle. Especially if you're out in the hot sun all day. Wash your bottles regularly -- in a dishwasher (or equivalently hot water). Also, try not to share water bottles -- someone else may not be as tolerant of the critters in your water as you are. I've read that whole cycling teams have gotten sick from sharing water bottles.
