TheActiveTimes.com: Survival Myths That Can Kill You

MYTH: Use a solar still to get drinking water in the desert

“The solar still thing is one of those myths that gets perpetuated in the literature and on reality shows,” says Nester. To build a solar still, you dig a hole in the ground, place a container in the middle, cover the hole with clear plastic and weight the plastic in the middle so that condensation drips into the container. “It’s a sexy idea,” he says. “That’ll work if you’re in a place like Maine or Florida or Costa Rica or Seattle where there’s water in the ground. That won’t work in the desert.”
