Got my new Camelbak today

I sold my old Classic before I left Atlanta thinking the bike trails in Florida had water every few miles. Not so.
After I ran out of water a few weeks ago on the far south end of the Withlacoochee Trail and having seen the limited water signs on the Suncoast Trail, I decided I needed another Camelbak Classic. Nashbar had a nice sale so.....
I like the new design. Much easier to fill and clean than my 2004/5 Camelbak Classic.
Tomorrow I head out for a ride south to test it out. And yes, the daytime high temperatures here are still around 90F (32C).

When ambient air temperature hits the mid 90s, I use mine. Ice + water. The added bonus is that it keeps my back a little cooler than it would be otherwise.

I wish I'd said it instead.
