2. According to the Mayo Clinic site, an average male ought to drink 3 liters a day

So, if my calculations are correct, a 5 gallon pail of drinking water ought to last about a week for one adult male.

A member had posted in a thread in GD a link to a govt. website where it was stated that everyone should have at a minimum, a 3 day supply of food and water on hand in case of an emergency.

I'll check into getting a script for a 90 day supply of coumadin the next time I need a refill.
