Drink water BEFORE you start work and BEFORE you get thirsty. IT takes time for your body to process the water you drink. The magic trick is to start sipping water 30 minutes before you start the hard work. If your feel the need to guzzle tons of water your waiting to long between drinking. If you want cheap ice just fill up your used plastic bottles (Gator aid or whatever) with water and freeze them. They take a long time to melt so add them to water in a cooler of some sort. You dont want to be thirsty with only ice around. If you start getting a headache or cramps you need salt. I keep a few salt packs in my truck for emergencies. Also all that salt is bad for you thing does not apply to you. Your special. On a hot day you should drink 2 gallons of water easy.
