I switch between lots of water, and I also like bringing a gallon of iced tea with me...but you have to drink the iced tea sparingly.

I always wear a hat too.

good luck.
I used to drink ice tea but found out that Ice tea is a major cause of Kidney stones. Also contains caffeine. I just bring ice water.
Always take time to eat breakfast and then I bring a insulated 2 gallon jug of ice water(to the OP) and pack a light lunch
