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

Kidney stones?! Better contact Si Robertson asap.

bring a lunchbox with 3-4 32oz gatorades but freeze 1 or 2 of them so they keep the other ones cold. By the end of the day the frozen one will be thawed and you can drink it.

Si makes his own

No seriously, I keep a water bottle in my pocket all the time. And have 2 neck coolers from ULINE on my neck all day when it's super hot.

Jeans and Cotton T's will overheat you! I cant imagine wearing jeans all day! Poly work pants are less weight. I prefer shorts for myself. Some of my guys prefer pants. We all prefer a moisture wicking shirt. Makes all the difference in the world! 20# of ice per day per truck to keep the water cold! Hydrate everytime you come back to the truck or change equipment!
BTW.........I hope you are wearing a big hat! 15 degrees difference alone with a good hat!

Something that helps measurably is to use a camelback or other dromedary, or a sports bottle in a neoprene koozie, kept on you or your machine. This applies more to commercial work where you aren't by the truck every twenty minutes or so:
Camelbacks are hot to wear most days but on the days you can bear them, they really help keep you hydrated. Fasten one to your machine if you don't want to wear it. The point is to take small sips regularly. Don't wait until you need water or have a chance to get back to the truck. Make a habit to take two,three passes and then take a couple swigs, mow some more and repeat. If you're pruning /trimming fasten one to your ladder or keep a bottle by your tarp, barrels, generator, whatever....but not kept all the way back at the truck. When you take a step back to check your work take a sip-when you move your ladder take a sip. Try it you will really notice a difference in your energy and stamina through the heat.

Had no idea who Si Robertson was...until I Googled him. I don't watch broadcast TV or have cable or Dish/Direct.

I have a 6mm kidney stone and I'm puzzled by this discovery last Friday. Doing a full battery of alternative treatments to avoid any expensive interventions that would drain me of my net worth. Seriously have considered working PT some place just for benefits.

I have a cooler with 8-9 24oz Contigo water bottles ready to go. In pickup bed behind the drivers door.

There was a poster here years back who flat out said he waited till he got home to drink water. Guy had all sorts of health problems.

I feel bad for you Exact! My bro told me the pain he had with his. I've never been e big tea, coffee or dairy drinker. He was/is.

Have you heard of drinking lots of apple juice/cider? Granny smiths are best to eat too, as I understand it for the greater amount of malic acid they contain. It may have been mentioned already in the post. Grapefruit juice too. These two juices are part of a preparation to soften stones before doing a liver/gall bladder flush. The flush is kind of contraversial as I understand it, but I think it is proven that malic acid can and does soften stones.

I hope you pass it easily and are able to keep from forming more.
