I purchased my first nalgene sometime around 1995. I don't still have it - I accidentally left it behind at a water stop on a trek in New Mexico years ago. However, I've had this nalgene nearly as long. It has been through many adventures, and alas is not likely to see any more.

What trauma caused this decapitation? A drop from the hands of my 4-year old. She stands all of about three feet off the ground, so it can't have fallen all that far. It was empty at the time, too. I guess it's time had come.
