    as you all know we need 2ltrs of water (at least) per day.....chances are if your out in the wilds and you start to get aching joins or a head ache you are already dehidrated....the body's thirst trigger is not very good as by the time you feel thirsty you are already dehidrated.......
    there are plenty of ways to treat raw water to make it drinkable...with purifying tablets but most off us dont carry them

    (1) water from a stream ......always take from the fastest flowing part and boil if possible...
    (2) water from a pond..........look for the inlet to the pond if it cant be found sieve the water with a clean sock and then boil.....
    (3) water from a muddy pond/swamp.........dig a hole 10ft from the edge of the pond/swamp 50cms across and 30/50cms deep....line the edge of the hole with grass/reeds...let the hole fill with water and then bail it out repeat the fill and bail process a couple off times and the water will soon be clear enough for you to boil and drink....

    there are many ways to get drinkable water when out in the wilds......but to be honest guys just make sure you've got enough with you ​
