Lake Erie tap water is awesome (perhaps only because I was raised on it...) and I would take that over a bottle of water any day.

Ever walked Cedar Point in a day? That damn peninsula is a mile long! I workout cardio, and even I felt the ache in my legs the next day!

Clearly you've become addicted to the toxins the GM plant is releasing upstream.

That's why you never skip leg day, bro. ;-)

Yep. And Hershey is worse with it's terrain. But it's still not a hydration issue.

My 3-year-old can walk around Cedar Point, and even Epcot, like he owns it.

Also, the Cleveland water system is actually one of the best in the country. One of the few things it gets right.

I tend to think that the Cuyahoga river catching fire was what we call a "teachable moment." It worked on the Federal level, and I think it worked in SOME states (please note that fracking is exempted from the Clean Water Act).

I don't really notice it that much, but my wife swears that the tap water in Orlando sucks. She has a water bottle with a Brita filter in it that goes with us when we fly south.

In general, I don't like Florida tap water. I've stayed in Orlando and Tampa and both were pretty bad.

What I've noticed about Florida water, and southern states in general, is that it's always kind of warm. I think that's part of what makes tap water there so strange. It's also the reason why on demand water heaters there are a good idea and make better sense economically than they do in northern states where the tap water is actually cold.

Orlando water is absolutely awful. For the first month I was here, every shower reminded me of vacations because of the smell I associated with it. It's true that it's never really cold. The problem (or benefit?) is that they don't treat it a ton because it comes mostly from underwater reservoirs they call the Floridan Aquafier. There's a lot of hydrogen sulfide in it, which they mostly filter out, but you can still smell it. (Aside: It's not "sulfur smell..." as straight sulfur is an odorless yellow compound.) If your fridge doesn't have a filter, you definitely want one on your faucet for anything you drink.

Ohio River water isn't too bad if it's filtered and cold. Orlando water is just nasty. My bro-in-law even has a soft water tank and a filter on the fridge it's still bad. No way I can drink it when down there. I'll be buying a case of water when we go down in December.

Mine is fine with the filter. When is the last time he changed it? :)

And drop me a line when you're down here... Simon is really into young teenage girls right now and would likely love to meet your daughter.

^He can be kind of anal about stuff like that, so I'm sure he changes his filter regularly.

Will be sure to drop you and the other Orlando contingent a message. Maybe an evening at Fun Spot or dinner or something like that. Would be good to see y'all and we will be there for almost 2 weeks. Jordan loves little kids so may be a match made in heaven, lol.
