Without water, we cannot function. We know the old saying: the body can survive weeks without food, but only days without water.
In order to function properly, our bodies require eight 8-ounce glasses of water each day, or about half a gallon. Access to water should be first on your priority list in the event of camping or bugging out.
After all, if you don’t have access to clean drinking water, the rest of your preparations don’t matter: you won’t live long enough to utilize them.
Severe dehydration is a terrifying thing. It is essential to know the havoc that it wreaks on your body, so if you do find yourself in a situation without a water supply, you can identify the symptoms and know how much time you have left.
