What are you guys and gals doing to keep you water from freezing on multiple day hikes on the Presi Trav?
I'm in PA and it's cold, but nothing like up in NH this time of year. I've been hiking and camping a lot for prep for my traverse in late February. I've found that my bladder has been freezing. The water in the bladder hasn't froze yet but the straw and mouthpiece have been freezing up thus rendering it useless.
I learned quickly to blow the water back in but after a while the mouth piece is still freezing up.
I imagine these things will be useless on the traverse.
Can you winterize them? Or what sort of water apparatus would you suggest?
I've been reading through the forum as much as I can, there's some great advice/information here as well as some great experience. I've seen a few people advise to take hot water since it won't freeze as fast.
