I agree with this. When I'm out on a backpacking trip water isn't available every step of the way. I've done segments where there might be no water at all for 20 miles or even 35 miles. My strategy for that has been to drink a liter of water at the source and carry 3 liters with me. To get that liter down, I use Crystal Light lemonade hydration mix or something like Endurolyte Fizz. Otherwise, it's difficult to drink a lot of water. I see this as sort of like intermittent fasting as far as water is concerned.

I did this because I don't have a habit of salting my food and I was really low on salt.
