I got a camelbak

I bought a camelbak yesterday, and I used it the first time today. They are popular with bikers. It is a small backpack with a water bladder, this connects to a tube that you put in your mouth, bite then suck. It is great, i can drink whenever i want, wherever I want, without even stopping my mower. No more walking all the way across a yard back to my truck. You can put ice in it, so that cool water feels great. Only problem, i pissed twice in 2 hours of using it. it cost $40, but i should have bought a larger model, mine holds 70 oz's, i could have bought a 100 oz model. it feels funny/silly at first, but it definetly helps.

The Camelbak sounds great to me. I'd go for the 100 ouncer myself. Were you able to purchase it online? If so, where? Perhaps if I can find one, I can do a little humping myself. No pun intended. <p>----------<br>--Disneyland on the Potomac - ICQ [icq]31223414[/icq]<br>www.go-emerald.com

where did you get that thing?<p>I get tired of going back to the truck for a cool one myself. shoot! a person could throw a couple of quarts in that thing and be set for a good while!<p>think of the other applcations! third hole of the back 18 and you are parched! a bass tournament when you just gotta cool off and there isn't a fish in the boat yet. no time to sit and cool one!<p>great idea! unfortunately my spouseperson isn't noding her head up and down at the idea!:)<p>GEO

I have a couple of the small one that Trimmer Trap sells,, they work fine, just a bit too small and being belt mounted they tend to get in the way when you're on a mower,, just fine with a walk behind or when trimming though

I have a better idea-<br> How about someone making a similar aparatus to wear that you could pee whenever you had to!<br>Just think-while doing a residential with the owners washing the car, or in public at a commercial job; you could give them a silly grin as you relieve your self in public, much like the same look when you relive your self in a swimming pool :)<br>I'd definitely buy one of those! No more holding it until the next job, etc. I can see it now.........<p>----------<br>Smitty ô¿ô<br>

Watch out, we'll start an entirely disgusting conversation about peein' in the customers pool! <p>How about strapping it over the seat of your mower, like a backpack for your seat. I think I sweat too much to have to pee that much so the seat thing would work out well, better than a cupholder!<p>Homer
