Woman living with Lyme Disease gives advice for people to avoid the condition

It is prime tick season here in Central Pennsylvania. That means you need to focus on protecting your family from Lyme Disease.

Back in 2017, Christine Knapp went to her doctor because she just wasn’t feeling like herself.

“Brain fog had really set in. Exhaustion had set in. I could not get through a day without napping. I was starting to, frankly, lose my mind,” Knapp said.

After a battery of tests, over the course of a year, Knapp was diagnosed with Lyme Disease.

My only complaint is that eventually, backflushing won’t be enough. These can clog up after some time and no amount of back flushing will fix its low flow. I went through 2 on the AT. However, it will attach to Smart Water Bottles and most bladders!

Built for backcountry reliability and portability, the Sawyer Squeeze filter is our pick for the best portable water purifier.

The Sawyer Squeeze was (by far) the most common Pacific Crest Trail water filter this year – for the fifth year in a row. It’s a $39, 3 oz / 85 g hollow fiber filter that rids your drinking water of protozoa and bacteria (and floaties). It can be used with Sawyer bags (included with the filter) or with compatible water bottles (Smartwater is the bottle of choice for many hikers).
