    STaying hydrated

    We are gonna be doing a job this week... that includes a lot of 'sunshine time'...
    And to make it worse... Atlanta has had a heat wave.

    What sports drinks do you guys prefer... to keep the electrolytes up???
    I would prefer something lower in sugar and definitely NO 'high fructose corn syrup'

    Thoughts???

    I like Gatorade. Usually in the spring/summer months I keep 3 water bottles and one large bottle of Gatorade in my cooler. May not fit your needs of corn syrup or sugar though.
    I also keep a large beach umbrella in the truck. And at times a 6X6 pop up canopy. No use in melting in the sunlight if you dont have to.

    Nuun tablets work great. You can get them at running stores or Amazon. Just drop a tablet in a bottle of water. They're not quite as bad for you as Gatorade ect...

    I like Gatorade's "Frost" line of drinks. Includes "Cool Blue", "Riptide Rush", and my favorite "Glacier Freeze". They have a "crisp" taste, and do not leave any kind of a residue in your mouth. Very refreshing! In fact, they're the only sports drinks that I drink.

    Water.
    If you were a real tech, you'd solder a relay on that board and call it good to go.

    I do a triple evac with nitro to remove non condensables.

    I use 56% silver on everything except steel.

    Did you really need the " If you were a real tech " ??

    Coconut water is considered Nature's Gatorade. It's very popular among the drinks sold by street vendors and tiendas here in Ecuador.

    I keep several bottles of water and one or two bottle of gatorade in the cooler, I like the "frost" line they do have a low sugar line too. But I drink water until it doesn't seem to quench my thirst, then I drink a bottle of the gatorade, And it usually tastes real good. By that time a little sugar's not a bad thing

    Pretty similar except when we got over 95 I carried the small waters and lots of them. I drank one thru the day while actually working but my rule was one small bottle between every service call. I also carried some packets of electrolytes to add to water but I am having a CRS moment and can't remember the name other than from health food store.
