I did sign it. This can, without trying to sound too dramatic, be a matter of life and death. When out on a long, multi-day, self-supported tour, it may be a long stretch between campsites. And in uncivilized areas, there may not be any services like potable water for miles around. After a full day in the saddle and the tank is running dry, it's good to know you have somewhere to recharge. Although it's unlikely, sometimes the crowd can be rather unfriendly to the skinny tired (e.g. the country rube that just tried to run you off the road a few miles back). I would feel better on a touring ride to know that I've got just a bit of a backup.
