To quench your thirst

by Kyle Adams
(Unkown)

Like many other comments have told you, pee really is safe to drink. It is 95 percent water!

Although we may think of apple juice and grape juice, in the wild, we won't have the luxury of having them. So instead, try chewing on vegetation or eat very juicy fruit.

Although extremely unappetizing, if you kill a fish and are in desperate need of water, sucking on its eye could save your life!

Dew would be an excellent form of drink. If you wake up early in the morning in the wild and there's dew everywhere, wiping your hand on it and sucking the dew would be good, or scooping the dew into a container.

Make a rain catcher using a bowl or hollowed out bamboo. Rain water is pure and contains nothing that could be harmful, unless it hits the ground.

The Urine Debate
by: Todd Owen ~ Denver, Co

With all the technology, all the resources from the internet and tv as well as all the Wanna Be Survival Experts crawling from the wood work, I dont see why in hell any of us wold need to use our own urine to get by for maybe just maybe another day. Yes I know situations could possibly arise and yes life can throw some nasty nasty curve balls a us , but this topic should be laid to rest. I am all for learning and sharing my own skills with anyone and I do very often here in the Rocky Mountains. I never mention this subject to any of them though. So lets move forward and learn more to be PREPARED and instead of getting knowlegde from some over paid Survival Guy who strokes his own ego for ratings and less on teaching real life skills and get out there and practice what we think we know....

Solar Still
by: Joe (PreppingToSurvive)

Drinking urine can cause all sorts of issues. I'd suggest using the liquid in a solar still instead.

really?
by: Shaykh Idris

I suggest that you boil urine before you drink it: I disagree with it being a thirst-quencher, but if anyone is dismally stupid enough to want to drink it, boil it first..

A few other tips
by: Todd Owen ~ Denver, Co

Kyle I posted an article on here a year or so ago on the proper way in an EXTREME situation on the use of ones urine, without having to drink it, yet allowing it to create water... One other tip regarding what yu posted. make sure whatever vegetation your eating on is a KNOWN EDIBLE PLANT. One trick the true Native Americas use to do was place a small pebble in their mouth to curb the desire to drink water when very thirsty. Give it a shot it does actually help a lot.Also regarding collecting DEW from the morning foliage, in some cases you can wrap a shirt around your ankles and let it collect moisture as you walk through the weeds..
