Riverwalker's Gear - Rbbermaid Two Gallon Cooler
I use the Rubbermaid two gallon water coolers (they are available in larger sizes but can be difficult to carry without help) that many workers (carpenters, construction workers, electricians, etc.) have on their job sites. Remember, water weighs approximately 8.6 pounds per gallon and a five gallon water cooler when full will weigh over 40 pounds and take additional space for storage. I have a two gallon cooler for each of my vehicles and use these as a source for cooking purposes. They offer an easy method of transporting water should a temporary evacuation become necessary, are fairly inexpensive and can be obtained at most of the big box stores.
