Water Jug?

What do you guys use to bring water with you throughout the day? I've been using a Bubba Keg, but find it isn't nearly big enough. I don't have a large ice maker so bringing a big dispensing cooler isn't an option. I want something durable that holds around a gallon. Just wanted to see what you guys use.

I use a gallon size rubbermaid water jug, the kind with the flip up spout. I'll freeze a large cup of water the night before and put that in the jug, fill it with water and a little more ice, and it'll stay cold for 2 days sitting in the truck.

That's what we do. Keep a cooler on each truck and a case full of water.

We used to use a water cooler, the it would get so nasty from people putting their hands and drink in them. I had to wash it every day. So now I have a ice chest with water bottles and ice.

Reusable Culligan blue plastic jug from grocery store that is BPA free filled with 1 gallon of fresh-squeezed from our RO/Reverse Osmosis tap at our kitchen sink. No ice needed...I like it truck temp!

Okay water is good, but it won't get you through the week. you need something to replace the electrolytes. Try this:

1 quart water 1/2 teaspoon sea salt 1/4 cup local honey 1 quart organic lemonade, 1 qt organic cranberry juice. Everyone eats a banana every hour. Boils water add salt and honey, let cool add juice put in frig. over night. Put water in zip bags in freezer at night. Pack all in a cooler in the morning. I run solo and this is what I bring for me.
