Dehydration

If you start suffering from headaches, become nauseous, constipated, lose of appetite or feeling irritable, those are all signs of dehydration.  A person should be drinking at least 3-4liters of water slowly throughout the day.  A camper/hiker who is well hydrated will pee clear urine frequently through the day.  A camper/hiker who has a deep yellow urine with a strong odor is showing signs of dehydration, meaning you are not drinking enough water.  As soon as you begin to crave a drink or your lips become dry, you're body is telling you that you are already too low on liquids.  Drinking coffee, tea and alcohol doesn't help. These drinks can increase the loss of your body's fluids.
