The Wrath of Traveler’s Diarrhea
Only you know the true extent of your bugout. This article is written by someone who has been on a five year bugout. I really enjoy the content here by someone who is living and traveling out of a backpack. I think there is so much for preppers and survivalists to learn from. One of the things that terrifies us all is waterborne illness. Not as common in the western world as it is in the rest of the world, waterborne illness is a serious issue.
There is some great information in this article about how to deal with the untimely issue and what can be done to avoid it as well. The water lost through diarrhea can truly compromise a person and this is most true in a survival situation. You must have electrolytes and assure that you are ready.
