PHIL'S EXCELLENT ADVENTURE

Our friend Phil, W6PET, recently was on a trip where he had a few interesting twists and turns. His pictures and descriptions will give some idea of what happened.

Dehydration
Most water is absorbed in the small intestine. This means that gulping a lot of water immediately upon realizing you're dehydrated (or waiting until you are thirsty) can mean that there's a time lapse before you get the water absorbed into your bloodstream.
Sipping teensy bits of water isn't a great idea, either.
That's because it just wets the stomach lining - which absorbs it, but it doesn't get to your blood stream. So take a reasonable amount - about 4-6 ounces - at a time. Kids sometimes have a hard time with this.

If you are dehydrated, you need to drink water, but you also need salt, calcium and potassium. Some say you also need magnesium. Trail mix contains most of these things, so do any number of other snacks. But if you're dehydrated, you may not feel hungry - so making yourself eat crackers and cheese is a good idea. Having crackers and cheese (or anything similar that you like) is quite a good idea in the desert.
