Any real amount of water gets heavy quick and that's the last thing I want to run out of, so how much do you guys carry in?
Usually - NONE - All I need is an empty plastic bottle, and when i got across of small creek I refill the bottle with fresh water. (I used a GPS to track all the water sources on the mountain).
The only time when I got with me some water is in plain areas, 750mL/day.
In time I learned a lesson, if I drink more water my body is getting tired, so I tried to keep it at minimal to dont get deshidratated.
