1. They say that you know that you got enough water in your system when your urine is clear. I assume this is because it means that you have taken in more water than your system needs, so your body is expelling it as waste. My question is does this mean that in a survival situation where you need to conserve water should you avoid this point since this means you are wasting water?
2. A gross option that has been going through my mind, but I have to ask. Is it OK to recycle your waste by boiling/purifying your urine? This would make it so you could utilize the water your body expels as waste along with other minerals and vitamins.

A whole lot less than 1L/hr if you are sedentary and not in heat - 3L/day is very adequate then.Doc Torr wrote:You are not a kangaroo rat, and therefore your body requires about 1 liter of water per hour to function at peak in a oom temperature environment. less if you are sedentary, more if you are moving or the temperature is higher or lower.
