Camping Jerry Cans
You can't last very long without water, so bring enough to drink, wash your dishes, and shower as needed. There are several factors to consider when determining how much water to bring on a vacation, including the temperature, the availability of other water sources (such as swimming in a river), who you are travelling with, and what you would do if something went wrong. Boiling water or water purification tablets are an excellent strategy without having to bust out the emergency supplies.
Additionally, if something truly goes wrong, you should have a mechanism to communicate; assuming you are not travelling outside of service areas, a satellite phone, or cell phone coverage will do. The next thing to worry about is weight. Where you are going to store your water is a pretty big decision. If you are opting for a jerry can to store your water, chances are you are going to chuck it up on the roof. Water does weigh a lot, so you need to be cautious about where you store them. A litre of water has a mass of 1 kilogramme. In a 4WD, you should ideally maintain the weight as low as you can. Many times you are forced to use the roof racks of your 4WD to carry water and gasoline, but it is not a good idea to put a lot of weight up there, as top-heavy 4WDs handle much differently.
Many individuals don't give much regard to the fact that the containers you use to transport your gasoline, diesel, and water occasionally malfunction. Plastic is a great material for storing water as it seldom affects the taste. However it can crack when fully loaded, so be careful when lifting and loading. Don't bang any sides on pointed objects, as they can easily split with the added pressure of being full. It is also possible for leaks to form, and that can put you in a really difficult situation, whether it be your long-range tank, a jerry can, or a flexible bladder. It pays to have a few different storage options, especially for water, so that if one does leak, you won't be completely screwed! You can check out other ways of storing water as well, such as footwell tanks, modular water tanks and water bladders.
