I've added the section on Food & Water. Well... the first part of it anyway. The section dealing with food is still to be done.
The section on water took a long while because I worked on it all offline; and that included the researching. And of course, there was that little thing called Christmas that distracted me for a while. ☺
Hope you enjoy it.
- How your body uses water: Explains what water is used for in your body, what happens if you don't have enough water, how to plan your drinking water requirements, and what liquids don't replace water.
- Finding and getting water: Sources of water in the wilderness and how to procure it. Understanding groundwater and the water table. How terrain affects water location. Relationships between animals and water. Plants and water - natural water containers, water-gathering plants, water-containing plants. Methods of getting water, including mini wells, in-ground stills, transpiration bag stills, above-ground stills, rain, and dew. Procuring water in the desert, beach, sea, snow and ice.
- Water testing: Why test water? Water testing at home, camping and travelling. A list of harmful things that could be in the water (sharks don't count because it's easy to make sure that there isn't one in your glass).
- Water treatment: Methods to treat your water such as boiling, ultraviolet light, chemicals, filters, and distillation. Unusual water treatments and what I think of them. These include magnetic water treatment, particle accelerators, ultrasound, explosives, crystals, and farting. Choosing how you treat your water (be strict but kind).
