Not for me. My normal hydration strategy is to drink water. I'll take an EmergenC before bed, and one in the morning, depending on how I feel, otherwise I drink water (and whatever alcohol I feel like). I just have a water bottle I carry around (since I'm not miles and miles from camp, at my regionals!).
That didn't work at all there (I had a water bladder and coconut water).
I honestly stayed feeling thirsty until about Thursday. I was craving Coke (which I don't like - any sodas, I don't drink). Some ANGEL @ my camp put out a public cooler, full of various juices, sodas, chocolate almond milk and I drank and drank and drank...horrible stuff I would never drink IRL, but it was so good out there...
Ugh. And I can no longer stand the thought of coconut water, I drank so much...
Anyways. My point being, my normal water-only lifestyle didn't cut it out there. I had absolutely no way of knowing that, despite all my research and planning.
Not um, really helpful...just my personal experience.
