Water in a Survival Situation

Drinking from a spring with a plant straw. I got sick a few days later and I'm pretty sure it was I didn't purify water in a survival situation.

Out checking a friend’s trap line, I used a hollow plant stalk as a straw to drink from a spring. I was sick for a week afterwards.

These are all my articles on how to get water in a wilderness survival situation. If you’ve spent any time on my site, you know that I go into detail about how to do things, and do them right.

So, I don’t have just one article on finding water in the wilderness or a single post on how to purify water in a survival situation.

I’ve got in depth articles on each topic for you and I put all the articles in one place so it will be easy to find what you’re looking for.
