Bottled Water or Tap Water

Is bottled safe? Not really.. Tap water is monitored every 3 mins
Does bottled water taste better? NO taste test FAILED when compared to TAP water
Is it cheap? NO .. its 2,000 x more expensive
Bottled water fills our land fills!! Trashing our environment.
Its a Manufactured Demand .. Scaring us, misleading us and seducing us to believe that bottled water is safer
Please help redeem our planet .. our mandate.

Embarking on a Journey Part 2

Backpack Travel Preparation - Pack and weight training

I have made my skeleton itinerary and my plan has widen. I now plan to travel from Toronto-Vancouver Island, Canadian Rockies, Nova Scotia and New Brunswick then back to Toronto in a month and a half.

I packed my backpack with the following items:

sleeping bag
5 t-shirts
bathing suit
one pair of trousers
1 shorts
quick dry towel
2 tank tops
wet ones
toiletries (toothbrush, tooth paste, soap for clothes, coconut oil and baking soda)
a month supply of vitamins
5 pairs of socks
underwear
tights and gloves
pajama
slippers
5 finger vibrams!

The sack itself and the sleeping bag are the heaviest.. but everything in total is under  15 pounds. I packed early so I can start walking with the backpack for a month as weight and endurance training. My goal is to walk every night around with my backpack!

Preparation is a key. Preparation is fun and I love the process. Im starting to understand   and enjoy every part of every plan. Its not only a natural or physical preparation but also a spiritual one.

I pray that God gives me the key to every city and town I visit. That I will be a blessing every where.

“I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.” Gal 2:20
