Whatever you guys do, do NOT do the following.. :)

I was deployed to the desert. Temps were in the one-hundred-and-teens, and we were sucking down water constantly. I went through 2 gallons of drinking water a day, and wasn’t peeing it away… it was all perspiration.

Thinking I would outsmart Mother Nature, when the sun went down and it cooled off, right before I turned in and got some rack time, I chugged an entire canteen of water (somehow thinking it would “rehydrate” me during my rack time)…

Erm, no. I woke up 3 hours later and I had to PEE! In fact, I had to pee so bad I could barely walk. Only made it about 30 feet before the “dam broke” to turn a phrase…

Just… just don’t do that. It’s bad. Well, I mean, it might have done me some good, but having to pee so bad you can’t walk falls under “bad” in my world, soo… just don’t do that. :)

The wicked flee when none pursueth..." - Proverbs 28:1
