I was reading another thread that touched upon daily intake of water and I recalled a hiker who once described his habit of "cameling up" at a water source. Has anyone heard of or used this practice? I took this to mean drinking large amounts of water in order to avoid having to search for water too frequently. I personally can drink a ton of fluids at the drop of a hat. (yes that includes beer <burp>) I just didn't know whether or not this is a good idea. How much water do you drink in a day and are there any habits you have formed in regards to your hydrating? I know that weather conditions can play a role in ones intake.
