    I had 4 liters + two of whatever my jug holds, don't know what that equates to but I'm still drinking now and I'm still thirsty.

    Good then. A Gatorade every now and then is OK for the electrolytes but I would only have one of those to every gallon of water. I drink My gallon jug of water everyday plus about 6 liter bottles of bottled water that I get at work.

    Flip side is if you go through too much water you need that shot of salt. Its all a balance.

    Not only salt but Potassium is extremely important. Gatorade has plenty of both in one bottle to keep you set for a while though.

    I wonder how the Mexicans do it out here in the middle of summer with the lawn care services, and field work, all day long in the direct sunlight, with 115-120* temps,,,,,,:confused:

    granted the humidity isn't as bad most of the time, but when the monsoon season is here, it's really nasty, and humidity or not, when it's 110 on up, it's friggin hot, i don't care what anybody says.
