Drink before you're thirsty. Your body is the best canteen. If running out of water is an issue, don't urinate, you need to keep all the moisture you can. If actually dying of thirst, don't eat, as digestion consumes more fluids. You can go maybe 3 days without water, assuming no activity. You can live over a week without food.
