216: Every Clime and Place That We Can Take WaterAugust 17, 2017 by Cigars and Sea Stories | Be the first to comment »
Every clime and place that we can take water. That should’ve been another stana in our hymn. On this episode of Cigars and Sea Stories Mike and Bennett are talking about hydration in various climates. Anyone who has buddy rushed through 29 Palms knows the heat can destroy you. If you get too dehydrated and fall out, Doc will shove a thermometer up your ass. That’s a fact. The “silver bullet”, as it is affectionately called, is the quickest way to get a core temperature. Heat stroke and heat exhaustion can affect anyone, and once you’ve developed symptoms you’re more prone to get heat related injuries in the future. People stop sweating and get clammy. Droopy eyes, blotchy skin, and a lost sense of awareness are all key signs that someone is about to go down. It’s not just the heat that can dehydrate you. Greater elevations can play a factor as well. Higher altitudes with lower moisture in the air creates a multiplier effect that can suck the wetness right out of you. “Every clime and place that we can take a gun”, sure but a unit without resources and rations is useless. Hydrate or die!
