Water Break in the Desert
We're always being told by our betters to drink more water. Mostly like nearly everybody I ignore them. However I had a most unpleasant experience on our trip with such behavior. It was about half an hour after a lunch break and I suddenly felt extremely tired. Not a good thing astride an 800-pound two-wheeled machine. I had Michael pull over to tell him that I absolutely had to close my eyes for fifteen minutes. As we discussed an appropriate spot, I drank quite a lot of water before climbing back on the saddle. Within a minute or two I felt so much better I had to stop Michael again and tell him to nix the plan. I worked out my consumptiuon that day. I had had two cups of coffee and maybe a small drink of water first thing, Wow, if ever I needed to be reminded of dehydration that was it. Drink plenty of water!!!!
