Booty Beer = Ghiardia??

Alright, I have a buddy who has swam twice this year and still hasn't had his booty beer. I've been telling him the river gods are unhappy and that's why he swam again. Well, he's had ghiardia before and now he's suggesting that a booty beer could lead to ghiardia. Ghiardia sucks but I say ""suck it up." If you get ghiardia then that will be a further deterrent to swimming. Any scientific evidence that ghiardia could be in one's booty's? Also, how about letting your booty's dry out, then drink the booty beer?

My understanding is that Ghiardia always comes from the booty...

If your friend has had it he has better immunity than most, so tell him to take his balls out of his purse and drink up!

ghardia is a parasite that you get from contanimated water. if its present in the water than don't be drinking the water but a little alcohol won't hurt so tell him to man up and drink from the booty

Giardia is for East Infections

Exactly, "Take your balls out of your purse and drink up". The guy probably is'nt worth paddling with if he's such a sissy.

Only East Infections worry about Giardia. Giardia is totally overrated, I have drank from hundreds of mountain streams and paddled hundreds of rivers and have never gotten Giardia. East Infections buy the campaign by water filter companies that water is bad. What did humans do for the last 1 million years when we were drinking water from streams. I have even seen East Infections filtering water right at the base of a glacier, come on. Giardia is 90% myth.

Be very careful what you say with the parasite gods listening.

One of the mags, I think paddler, did a bootie beer article recently. They tested a few pairs and didn't find anything too nasty. Probably better off drinkning bootie beers after a snow melt run than doing some of the nasty runs back east.
if i'd known it was gonna be that kinda party...

Booty Beers- what a buch of knuckle heads. I can't believe you guys do that.

The Chief defines booty beer as drinking a beer while looking at a good looking girl's booty. And booty beers are encouraged and thought highly of, not as punishment.

Pretty sure I had ghiardia once from a trip to Mexico and I think I had it from a trip on the Taos once too. It was &^%%% ugly.

Seriously though, he's a good guy to paddle with and one of my best friends, just on a swimming binge lately. He too had ghiardia once so he's nervous.

What if you had warts on your foot, is that a good excuse? Lastly, can I let him wash it out with h2o first?

not 100%, but belive that once you have it, you always have it. it just "acts up" every now and again.
I will refrain from examples , Im sure someone will list them

it also comes from fecal matter, found down stream from grazing sheep, cattle, and beaver.

my attitude, is "if you can see the source, its fine". that means snow field run-off, or spring.

"seeing" a waterfall dosn't count as the "source"

Rn's, and Docs please chime in....
