For archery elk camp this year we'll be camping out of our trucks at 12,000' right next to a stream.

I think it would be handy to have a hose running from the stream to camp - say 50' or so down hill. I'll put a shut off valve at the bottom end.

A) Will this work?

B) What should I do with the end of the hose in the stream?

C) Any trick to priming it?

Sorry Andy.

I though the stream was 50' below you.(I need to read the post better).

Gravity will work well If you can get the stream pond ed up where you place the inlet.

I have used 2'' PVC with short pieces of old fire nose and screw clamps to connect the joints
of pipe and allow for easier routing.

Try using a water ram pump. If you aren't familiar with them take a look at this site:

You can see it working if you go to YouTube.com and search for " Clemson hydraulic ram pump in action"
