Scholars believe Succoth is Tell el-
It’s thought Succoth isn’t a town but an provisioning area around Wadi Tumilat (a river). That river was the last reliable source of water for at least 37 miles into the desert. So at this place man and animal could have had their last drink before the long walk to the first wadi/river. Likely they carried some water with them.
