    Okay, so we should have a bug-out bag for 72 hrs. What about water? Maybe a physically fit, young soldier currently serving could hump 3 gallons plus everything else, but most people couldn't. You'd actually end up with stress fractures. So what are people doing or what's recommended? A purifying filter?

    This is something I've always wondered about. My dad, when the y2k hysteria was going 'round, made me fill a 55 gallon water drum in our basement full. The whole time I was doing it all I could think was "this water is going to be so gross." Luckily, nothing ever happened and I didn't have to drink it.. but that always made me wonder what one should do to have clean drinking water stored come some disaster.

    It would be simpler to carry a bottle of clorox.

    I wouldn't find much use for a jug of bleach during the 72 hours expected with the BOB since I would/should have some fresh water with me. My bag does contain a small filtering container (a cup at a time) and a tiny bottle of purifying tablets found in most camping supply outlets.

    I make my own water pouches with my FoodSaver Pint bags so they will conform to the shapes they are stuffed into. They are dated so they get replaced every 6 months or so and the house plants or garden benefit from the water.

    As stated, we need about a gallon a day of fluids to stay hydrated, but we can't carry that much in a BOB, so my 'extra' is in external containers that will be grabbed and placed in my transportation, assuming there is time and ability to do so....or can be returned to and retrieved days later. My main supplies will actually carry me forward for up to a year, if I'm alive to use them. It is with my main emergency supplies where I keep the jug of bleach.

    Bleach doesn't kill everything; e.g., giardia. It would be better than not having it, tho.

    132 pounds? How do you lift it to fill it? Where do you keep it?

    3 gal of water is only 24 lbs. That shouldn't be an issue unless you are humping cross-country. I am old and have a bad back and regularly move 5 gal jerry jugs of water several hundred yards.

    I guess that would be fine if water was all you were carrying in your BOB, but that's usually not the case.

    And that's 3 gallons each for every man, woman, child, and probably pets, in the family.

    Kids are a problem, but an adult with a good pack should be able to carry 50 lbs even if the miles don't click off very fast. If one is going to put time, energy, and money into emergency preparedness than put some focus on being able to carry stuff.

    I spent two years on disability for a bad back and have worked my way back to being able to carry what I need. I just need to get to the boat anyway. *grin* Really, if I can do it you can too.

    Benefits of Water:

    It makes up, on average, 60 percent of your body weight,
    Every system in your body depends on water,
    Lack of water can lead to dehydration, a condition that occurs when you don't have enough water in your
    body to carry on normal functions.....

    Everyone has heard the advice, "Drink eight 8-ounce glasses of water a day." That's about 1.9 liters, Although the "8 by 8" rule isn't supported by hard evidence, it remains popular because it's easy to remember. Just keep in mind that the rule should be reframed as: "Drink at least eight 8-ounce glasses of fluid a day," because all fluids count toward the daily total.

    How did you do it? Did you get a good pack and just slowly start increasing weight?

    Yes, that was the new advice that came out, wasn't it? In contrast to "tea, jello, soup and (even) coffee don't count".
