Time to throw out the iodine-tainted Jackrabbit Lake water that I've been drinking all day.
... and perhaps throw caution to the wind as well.
Hurray! The spring water here at Pacheco Camp tastes great, better than San José tap water, and it's cold. Of course, I have no way to know if it's truly safe to drink without filtering.
I'm so sick of the iodine odour on my breath that I've gotten used to from drinking more a gallon of that water today. It still tastes like poison to me.
I convince myself that if I'm going to get sick from untreated water, it will be from the grey water that I drank yesterday at Paradise Lake and Jackrabbit Lake.
The Jackrabbit Lake water was greyish to begin with, but the addition of iodine makes it look like toilet water. Eau de toilette, anyone?
