    i have a huge water container, its an igaloo or whatever. it keeps like 8 galons of water, its amazing. i throw a bag of ice or two in it full of water, and i also put 5 bottles of gatorade in that big water jug. that way i can get the water from it at the bottom, or open it up and grab a gatorade. but your not sopossed to drink cold water when its hot out, but cold water seems to quench my thirst and room temp water doesnt.

    but i LOVE when its hot, i have been hopeing for the 90degree+ days for a month and still no luck!

    Try wetting a towel or bandana around your neck. You would be surprised at how much it cools you down. I never thought it would work until I tried it.

    I wear a Tilley hat soaked with water when it gets really hot.
