How to Ration Water


In a survival situation you should begin rationing your water immediately even if you have a good supply. You have no idea how long it will be until rescue or until you find civilization. The general guideline is to drink no water day one. Your bodies reservoir will replenish this. Days two through four drink 14fl oz and days five onward drink 2 - 8fl oz daily depending on climate and water availability. Moisten lips and tongue while drinking, before swallowing. To avoid vomiting, sip slowly.

  6. my uncle said to conserve water suck on a rock. Also, hold the water in your mouth without swallowing it for a while, that will keep your mouth moist. I don't know if that would help
