Simple & Effective Hydration Drink For Climbing/Kayaking Outdoors In Baking Weather

Most of us are often dehydrated at the best of times. With this baking weather - working outside can become a major issue.

Heat exhaustion and heat stroke are more real than you might think.

Our instructor tip, which we use, is a simple homemade hydration drink: 1 liter water + 1 teaspoon salt + 1 tablespoon sugar.

Really simple and really effective! Way tastier and far more inexpensive than your chemist dioralyte stuff.

Mini First Aid Kit (Out Of Bag, First Aid Done, Back Into Bag - All Within 5 Mins)

Your proper mountaineering or kayaking first aid kit is often really well packed inside ziploc bags, plastic bags and a dry bag. I know personally you can sometimes be reluctant to pull out your first aid kit for something minor like a blister or cut - however not treating it isn't great.
So carry a second tiny first aid bag which has a sprain bandage, few safety pins and few plasters - carried in the top pocket of your backpack.
If something minor happens you can have it whipped out within a few seconds, deal with the small injury and carry on without delay, or without having to delve into your well waterproofed big first aid kit!

What Should Be In Your Proper First Aid Kit?
