Hiking Tips: How To Make A Simple Rehydration Solution

We're headed out next week on our annual National Park hiking trip and this year it's Olympic National Park and Mt. Rainier. So today I've started packing and it includes a first aid kit that I keep in my day pack.

Our hikes are vigorous; we head out at sun up and stay out until sun down. So my First Aid Kit includes this rehydration mix. I make up several packets of this sugar, salt and baking soda mix and keep it my pack just in case we run into super hot weather and we  sweat a lot. This quick fix mix added to a bottle of water can turn around symptoms of electrolyte loss (headache, weakness, nausea) from heavy sweating while out on the trail. 

To 1 quart of water add:
2 Tbsp. sugar
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. baking soda

Happy trails!

XO, Lisa
