Used a drill pump and my drill, fired up the generator and pumped the water into my tanks...works awsome. Takes about 1.5 min to drain each 5 gallon tank...i use this same drill pump to feed my pressure washer from the creeks and streams..oh and to fill my hot tub.. Lol

I've run a garden hose to a running river like that and filled my water tank with the pump before. I plumbed in a shower head a few months earlier and so it was a simple matter of swapping a hose or two to make it siphon and fill the water tank.

But I my engine was overheating and I needed the water to cool the engine down every 5 miles until I could get off the mountain.

Mountain Camping is the best. And to be able to work and camp at the same time has got to be pretty special.

I don't think I'm brave enough to do that above the snow line and in the back woods though!
