Can you bring a small portable fan... I think Shlomo did.
love you lots bro and i hope you get to have fun in that heat too! miss you and can't wait to actually talk to you!
I think you do it by drinking infinite amounts of water. I remember downing about 2 gallons while hiking at the top of Ein Gedi in August. I didn't realize it had been about 120 until later, but I do know I didn't need a bathroom.
They do it by staying hydrated. They chug water constantly, often from Camelbaks they wear in the field. Staying hydrated helps your body maintain a proper core temperature.Hydrate or die.http://www.nmcphc.med.navy.mil/downloads/healthyliv/physfit/newsletters/ace/nutrition/healthy_hydration.pdfhttp://www.nmcphc.med.navy.mil/downloads/healthyliv/nutrition/urinekleurenkaart.pdf
Ugh the heat was almost unbearable. I couldn't step away from my fan for a second.
For what it's worth, it's supposed to be cooler tomorrow and for the next several day. Yesterday was just scalding, uniform or not.
Secrets from an Iraq War vet:1. Under Armour underwear (t shirts and undershorts). Expensive, but makes a huge difference in the heat. Could not have survived without the stuff.2. Camelbak when out in the field, and constant drinking bottled water when on base. Kidney stones are actually a not insignificant problem in Iraq due to the dehydration.
LTC I could not agree more. I can safely say I am alive today because of my Under Armor underwear. Not forgetting the brave guys I served with.-Dave
I don't think it's hotter in Iraq. But anything above 45 almost doesn't matter. A car temp in the dead sea goes up to 200 C, which is crazy to even get into. Keep on drinking and sweating it off, that helps to cool you down - a little :)
Iraq...by sweating artillery shells. My secret: gatorade!!! Cold gatorade stored in a portable cooler with ice whenever possible. Hot gatorade is a little hard to pass down the old throat.
