Water is probably the most important resource while you are out hiking. I always bring clean fresh H2O with me but now always have a back up plan as well. That plan is a bottle with a filtration system to purify streams and creeks to make them safe to drink. My purification of choice is Epic Water Filters.
Running out of Water
It has only happened to me one time so far but running out of water is the scariest thing that I have ever encountered. It was 100 degree day and like an idiot I tried to do a 15.8 mile hike with over 3000 feet of elevation gain. I brought 3 liters with me and thought for sure I would be fine.
I wasn’t. My pack ran dry with about 3 miles to go and was worried I was going to be one of those people who could literally see the car but couldn’t walk that far. It was scary. Immediately after getting home I got a filtration system that I bring with me on the hikes.
