Stay hydrated

Among this week's awesome finds at thrift stores: Two Nalgene canteens, as well as a more typical Nalgene and Camelbak water bottle.  All in very good to excellent condition, each was priced at just 77 cents. Total outlay with tax: $3.26.

New retail would have been between eight and twelve dollars per unit, so there's considerable cost savings.

The Nalgene canteens are same size as USGI issue, so they fit inside traditional canteen covers. And the ones from Nalgene are transparent, so you can see how much water you have left, or if any funky stuff's gotten mixed in.

I also found a Columbia brand hiking jacket for one of my daughters. It too looks nearly new.

Lots of good stuff in the thrift stores right now. They're still burning off inventory from the crush of year-end donations. Lots of people give up good used stuff because they got something newer and better at Christmas to take its place.
