Store water inside...Yourself!
« on: April 07, 2017, 10:40:46 AM »
An old First Sergeant once told me that the best place to store water was inside my stomach!

Turns out headaches are largely caused by dehydration. A properly hydrated body is more disease resistant.

A hydrated body overall works better

It has: Faster reaction times, thinks more clearly, repairs itself better, digests food better, absorbs more nutrition, and in my case, is overall, better lookin'!

Absolutely this. Lots of times people are found in the desert dead of dehydration with water in their canteens. It stores best in your body. And as you say it essentially "lubricates" everything we do- mentally, physically etc.

If your urine is yellow you need to hydrate.

Kids today don't know how easy they have it. When I was young, I had to walk 9 feet through shag carpet to change the TV channel.

Absolutely the truth. 1.5 gallons is my daily goal although that may be on the low side. Recently I have read recommendations for 1oz/lb of body weight.

Air Assault school is the same way. Every Time the Sergeant says to take a drink, he means the whole canteen. Do that or I'd hear, "Sir, drop and give ten to the wind (Meaning: Face forward drop and do 10 pushups, then rise to the position of attention, do a right face, drop and do ten more, rise to attention and so forth until you were facing in the original direction.)

A hundred or so times, very familiar with this! It was the worst when we had to drink two or three because some jack wagon barely got a sip down and made a huge mess on the floor.

One particular experience two or three canteens full, smoke deck GO! Add another while on the smoke deck, go again, rinse and repeat until smoke deck myself and some others were covered in vomited water, ahh great times in boot camp.
