And if you don't bring it, and something comes up, this is the remedy:

You can get it at Tractor Supply along the way.

General Discussion / Re: How much water to carry?
« on: July 08, 2012, 07:15:37 pm »
Hey there,

I'm currently a 1/4 of the way through the TA in Illinois.  I have two bottle cages with larger size bottles and, to supplement the bottles, I carry a 3 liter MSR bag. I usually fill it half way and use that to fill our bottles along the way. It's also really useful when you're at a campsite and don't want to ferry back and forth from the spigot.
With this heat wave, carrying enough water has been a bit of a challenge especially when I forgot to fill the MSR dromedary. There were a few times where I expected to have services and found them closed and knocked on a few doors and churches to use their sinks and that worked well.


I'm currently on the Transamerica trail and I have the entire trail loaded into my Garmin 62s  with the POI's as well (at least I think I have most of them). It's working very well, and is pretty easy to follow the straightline navigation. With an cheap SDcard I am also able to have the city navigator maps.
