Boot Spring was bone dry as of 18 May. No water flowing from the pipe. Further south, some diminishing pools of unappetizing water. Please don't forget your filter or your courage.

Hell that water looks great!  I have used way more manky water than that in the past.    :icon_lol:
temperatures exceed 100 degrees F
minimum 1 gallon water per person/day
no shade, no water
