    I like the DivaCup in real life, but I just can't get it to work for me in the woods (anything longer than a day hike). My hands always have a layer of ground-in grime on them when I thruhike, which...

    I am not going to say that this is good and you should do it, but I thru-hiked SOBO last summer, and I would guesstimate that > 2/3 of thru-hikers used bleach. I myself started with a Katadyn pump,...

    I will also be SOBOing, most likely starting mid-June. Due to a college schedule, a NOBO attempt would have to be super rushed and just didn't seem worth it. So SOBO it is!
