Thirst can drive a person to drink just about anything, however it should be noted well that many things in the wild should not be consumed without proper preparation; water is one of those things!
Water is a necessity no matter where you are.
With other conditions being favorable, you can live for a month or more without food,
but you’d be lucky to stay alive much more than a week without water.
– Bradford Angier (The Master Backwoodsman)
