Hydrate or Die!!!

After last years issues I thought I would post this up. I know there was a thread last year After the race but that was too late.
This is a " Don't let this be YOU type of moment"
The Baja 500 is 7 days away.
NOW is the time to start hydrating!!!!!

If you are .....
Driver
Co-driver
Pit guy
Chase guy
Or involved in any other capacity of the race.( I will put anyone who is in the heat)
As of NOW!!! Not tomorrow , not Thursday or Friday night... it's time to start... HYDRATING ..if you are not drinking approximately a gallon of water a day ? You are not drinking enough.
Oh yeah, and team guys going down to help out ... Thursday and Friday night are not the time to go out and get trashed ... save that for after the race. YOUR LIFE or the LIFE you have been entrusted with is counting on YOU being where YOU said YOU WOULD BE at the time YOU would be there !!!!

FB_IMG_1465066781844.jpg I took this last year, it stopped reading a short time later at 125+. In the shade north of san felipe.
The bees were vicious too...the pelican cooler full of cold water/drinks, and block ice saved us and few others.

We were on the lake bed last year and it was the hottest I have ever been. We had one pit guy get heat stroke. Luckily we were able to get him cooled down and hydrated. Serious stuff!
