    Yes, of course. Everybody knows that alcohol is a great way to beat dehydration.

    I was thinking about the carb boost, long term energy without the sugar found in an energy bar or in trail mix. ;)

    The wife just gave me back the big giant fanny pack she absconded with and never used (fifteen years ago). So, the side mesh pockets will have a water bottle for each of us old fart hikers. The center pocket will have a wide mouth quart bottle for decanting. If I wanted to add Crown into the mix, what would the proportions be (roughly 64 oz of water)? How much whiskey do I need? A practical math problem.

    However much water you want as a chaser is fine. Throw a few ice cubes in it to keep it cold.:alex:
    Crown, like mother's milk,:breastfed: should never be mixed with anything ;)

    I'll save the Crown for later. This hike is only a mile and a half further than our usual, but it used to kick our butts when we were in better shape.

    It was actually easier than the hike we usually do because it was not as steep and did not have as much up and down. Somehow, it took an hour longer than our usual. I figure it was a mile and a half longer than our usual. My hiking partner figures our pedometers are way off. We didn't need much water after all. Despite W.C. Fields claims other wise, I'm pretty sure that no fish crapped in my water.

    Remember, there has been NO NEW WATER since the formation of the planet. It's all been recycled about a JILLION times. Some how, some place, some fish HAS crapped in your (and my) water. Hence the reason for Crown or similar :dunno: ;)

    There's a cup of water at the bottom of the Mariana Trench that has your name on it.

    Millions of times. It's not a matter of how many times crap has been in it. It's how many times has it been in crap. ... and then recycled.

    Back to the recycling thing. It's a lot like this thread.
    But, I'm not sure what the highly intelligent whales do. Having no hands and all seems so limiting.

    True, but being the size, and having the mass of a whale, the need for a concealed weapon is rather a moot point. Even with Ahab after him, Moby Dick did well without one....
