When you go hiking or backpacking, will you take a water filter?

I know they say water is polluted and dangerous but I think its highly over done. Most everything ya see on tv stresses filtering and such and warns of virus and such. Truth be told lawyers make em stress it so some one dont get sick and sue em. Most all water in nature is safe to drink if ya hafta just use a lil common seance. I have drank from rivers and bayous that most of yall would freak over. I dont make it a practice but have no problem doing it. If there is no chemical plants or stock yards up stream and the water smells clean then it really is safer than they tell ya. Oh and if ya get sick and get mad at me too bad . I aint an expert and dang sure aint got no money.
