    I don't understand, then. I'm looking at the CT Website's page for snow and they say zero inches. Is that the "SNOTEL" page? Is there some other thing I should be looking at? But I think even if...

    I have no experience but I had a similar thread a few weeks ago and the general suggestions I got were to budget about $1000/month. So that's what I've budgeted. I can't imagine eating on $50/week....

    Okay, sounds like I'll be carrying a Sawyer filter and using it except for when I feel really confident that I don't need it. Or maybe I'll just bring coffee filters and iodine drops? Not sure, yet.
