30. Water is Valuable, But only so much
While finding as much as you can to carry water is important, one of the most unique ways to survive when lost might very be to not carry as much. Sure, water in a set container is great. You will need water, and if you feel you’re going to be away from a water source for a long time it will be best to carry some. However, carrying too much comes with a price.
Water has weight to it. The more you carry, the more weight you’ll lug around. There is a thought in survival that if you have to work harder to carry more water, you’re ultimately slowing yourself down and using up more energy and thus more water than needed. Therefore, one should only carry what makes sense.
