Bottle Of Water

Most of us underestimate the power of a bottle of water. We either ignore it intentionally or then other items take priority over a bottle of water. The most common assumption is that we can find water anywhere we want. Now that is true as long as you are around major cities or doing day trips with friends. When all is well, yes we dont need water and can remain thirsty for a few hours. But this is for times when life is not all good. Its my humble request, to give a bottle of water, the highest priority from all things to carry. Couple of reasons that I can think of as well as some from first hand experience :

1. Insect sting

2. Insect hit on your helmet/shades

3. Minor scratch/bruise

4. No restrooms for miles

5. For drinking :-)
