Moving water

Even if you are camping right on the river, you cannot do without dishes and other equipment for carrying and keeping water in them. You can, e.g, need more water for cooking. A special vessel is often required to draw water from the stream. Camping near a water source is not always possible or advisable, therefore you have to reckon with bringing water to the camp once or twice a day. Leaving the camp during the day in search of food or searching the area, you also need to take water with you.

Water saving
Water is a priceless treasure, so it must not be wasted. You never know, when it is possible to replenish supplies again.

Containers

There are many different types of containers that are designed to be both cold and cold, as well as hot liquids. These can be metal or plastic bottles or canteens, or special bags for carrying water – wineskins, which can be folded after emptying. Do not confuse water containers with fuel containers.

It is a traditional and convenient to use water container. Need caution, so as not to break the ribbon connecting the cap with the neck of the bottle. It is then easy to lose the cap.

WATER HANDLING

Sometimes we are forced to camp away from the water source and bring large amounts of water every day, necessary for drinking, cooking, washing dishes. It is most convenient to carry a heavy water container on your back. Fill the canister or other container to the brim. Then the water will not overflow inside during transport.
