12 WAYS TO FIND SAFE WATER IN AN UNPLANNED EMERGENCY SITUATION!

Greetings everyone, I am starting a survival in the wild series of articles. This water survival tip post marks the beginning. I knew some of this information already, however as I did more research I found that there are so many other useful tips I could have included. I decided to narrow it down to the one’s I thought were most practical for the average person. I hope you find this information useful.

1.BIRDS AND INSECTS 

Following the fight paths of birds at dusk or dawn can lead you to water. I’ll admit that a swarm of flies or gnats is not a pleasant sight.  However,  it can be an indication of water nearby.

2.LISTEN

At times you can hear rivers running from long distances away.

3.FIND LOW GROUND

Since water runs downhill finding a valley or low ground is a good idea.

4.MUD IS GOOD

If you find mud most likely there is water underneath. If you dig a 12 inch hole and let it sit, it should fill up. Although it may be a little cloudy you can use a cloth to strain out some of the sediment

5.ICE

If you are near ice that’s half the battle. However, you should never eat it, you should always melt the ice first. Eating ice lowers your body temperature and can make you sick.

6.DEW

For the most part if you are near grass, shrubs, and other vegetation you can count on the the build up of dew. Using cloths you can collect the dew from the surface of plants and wring it out into a container. One of the easiest ways is to tie the cloths to your shins and go for a walk. Just be careful that the plants you collect from are not poisonous.

7.PALM TREES, CACTUSES, AND BAMBOO

Are all good sources to find water

8.CONTRARY TO POPULAR BELIEVE DO NOT DRINK

Blood
Urine
Nectar
Salt water (This one should be obvious, it will only increase thirst)
Alcohol

9.RAINWATER

Using a poncho or plastic (maybe from a garbage bag) you can collect rain water. Do so by tying corners of the plastic to a tree trunk or branch 12 inches from the ground. Then tie the other end to a container allowing the water to drain. You can also tie all ends of the plastic evenly and place a rock in the middle so that all the water collect in the center.

10.UNDERGROUND WATER STILL

What you will need
  • The sun
  • Two holes, one big one small
  • A container
  • A tube or long straw for drinking
  • Plastic
  • Rocks

Start with a moist well lit area where the sun is shinning brightest
Dig out a rounded hole about 36 inches wide and 18 inches deep, in the middle of your hole make another smaller hole that will hold your container.

Put the container in the hole

Insert the tube or long straw into the container

Cover the hole with the plastic and stabilize and anchor it to the surface with soil and the rocks

Place a rock in the middle of the plastic to allow drainage into your container

The humidity that builds up under the plastic from the rays of the sun produces condensation that builds up on the surface of the plastic and drains into the container. Adding shrubs and plants inside of the hole increases the amount of moisture.

11.TRANSPIRATION TECHNIQUE

This is a cool technique that I just learned about. If you have plastic bags simply tie them around leafy green branches and plants in the morning and allow the water to collect. Perhaps put a few small stones or rocks inside the bags to allow the water to pool in the bottom.

12.ALWAYS ALWAYS PURIFY

Dangerous bacteria, and parasites, are always a possibility. So always always purify. Bringing any water you find to boiling point for at least 5 minutes is a good purification practice.

WISDOM FROM THE BOOK OF HAI CLUE

 

I posted an audio version of this article. However, I decided to re-post this content in written form as some learn better by reading. So many in life are struggling with various things that serve to cripple their self esteem, and faith. In this Hai Clue I want to draw attention to the process of becoming. In God’s creation there are many clues to how things become what they will be. As human beings we must not engage in self destructive actions and trust the process. Being a willing participant in our spiritual growth guided by the hand of God is incredibly important. There is a hidden clue in the title below, can you figure it out? If so type your response in the comment section below.

 

CATERing to low self esteem with PILls wont bring you up to pAR

Let’s see what the caterpillar has to say about hard times …

“I crawl I crawl sometimes I trip over my many feet

However, it may take me two days to walk down your street

Oh woe is me!

And I’m hairy oh so hairy


To many I may even seem scary

Oh woe is me!

And soon, soon I’ll cocoon

So dark inside

Without even the light of the moon

Oh woe is me!

For such a long time

All I’ll get to know is me

Wait what’s this

It seems from the darkness I have actually gained true wealth

For pushing against the cocoon shell are extensions of myself

Oh growth is me!

This tomb, my cocoon

Has served as a private class room

Whoa! the subject was me!

My life is now sure to reach new heights

With my wings I’ll ride the wind in a new class called flight


Oh! the possibilities of Me!

 

Keep in mind WHO “designed” the caterpillar, the process of the cocoon,

and the transformation process, and see the metaphor in your own life.

With God we will rise one way or another! Believe it!

 

“There is nothing in a caterpillar that tells you it’s going to be a butterfly.”

-Buckminster Fuller, 1895-1983, American Architect and Engineer
