Gathering Dew Is A Viable Fresh Water Source
You have probably all heard that you can go for 30 days without food, but only about 3 days without water. That is essentially true, although I am sure I have lived a week or more on nothing but Diet Coke, which I guess is mostly water…I hope. But seriously, if you are ever caught out in the wilderness or find yourself in a survival situation where you can’t stop at McDonald’s for a diet coke, or get water from a tap or buy bottled water and for whatever reason you don’t have the ability to find or purify open sources of water (ponds, lakes, streams, etc). One technique that you can use to to take a rage or a shemagh and rub it on the wet grass and allow the rag to get saturated with the water from teh dew. Then ring that dew out and allow the fresh water to drip into your mouth! Super easy but also highly effective.
Another similar method is to tie a cravat or shemagh or other dry absorbent material to your feet and allow the rag to collect water as you move along to your destination. This method is not as effective but does still work and it may be a good option if you are in an evasion type situation where you are needing to move out of the area, but still need to collect water.
