Survival Kit Item – Plastic Tubing
Four Feet of Clear Plastic Tubing
Plastic Tubing can be extremely useful in desert survival. It’s a good idea to carry a few feet of clear surgical plastic tubing with you in your survival kit. It can come in handy when trying to find water in the desert.
Dry Riverbeds can contain water just beneath the surface. To get to the water you’ll need some plastic tubing. The tubing will help you get down deep enough to suck up the water.
Just make sure the tubing is not to large in diameter. The opening should be around the size of a regular straw. Any bigger and it will make it hard to suck up the water.
