If you are lost in the wild, with no water, this is an easy way to get water from the ground.
Find a flat location larger than the still, which will be about 2 feet by 2 feet.
Dig a hole with whatever is available that is about two feet across and one and half feet deep.
While not neccessary if you are in a humid location, tosssing some vegetation into the hole will add more moisture, and therefore, more water.
Find a container to collect the water in, and place it in the center of the hole. I used the jar from my home-made survival kit.
Use a piece of plastic to cover the hole. Make sure that all the edges are sealed with dirt or sand.Put a little dirt or sand or a rock in the center,...
Wait 24 to 48 hours for your still to create some water. Do not open the still or you will let out all the moisture.
After you have waited 24-48 hours, you can open the still, and drink the water.
