when the water just isn't fresh enough
If you've ever been on a multi-day trek, you know that after a few days things start to get a little...ripe. Whether you're backpacking, or canoeing, or even just camping, you will eventually find that you and your cohorts just don't smell as good as the first day you set out on your adventure. And sometimes, you get there and the riverside campsite just doesn't smell fresh enough. The water smells too plain, too subtle.
Enter one of my favourite backpacking and kayaking buddies: Air Wick, Fresh Waters scent. I like to throw a bottle of this stuff in my pack, as well as a couple of Stick Ups in my tent to ward off the evil nasty that is often found with outdoor adventure. I've even been known to surprise fellow travelers who just aren't keeping up with smelling clean by giving them a good spray or two.
The Fresh Waters scent captures the freshness of a cool, sparkling stream mixed with the light scent of a summer evening breeze. Talk about camping by the Chattooga neatly packaged in a convenient spray! Seriously, you can't pick a better scent to enhance your experience. And if that one doesn't do it for you, there are so many others: Mountain Breeze, Crisp Breeze, Island Paradise...the possibilities are endless!
