If you ever need to find water in a wilderness area, knowing how to dig a seep will come in very handy. The water would be less likely to be contaminated as a creek or other open water source would be. Since the water would be seeping to the surface it would most likely be drinkable since it would be filtered by the earth as it seeps up.
Practical Primitive teaches up how to dig a seep by explaining how to find a spot to dig a seep and then how to lay rocks to help keep the water clear for drinking. This could come in handy someday if you ever go camping, hiking or like to learn for in case of shtf survival scenarios.
