I carry drink mixes on the trail. I think they help, but it might just be my belief that they help that makes them help. I don’t care. As long as they keep me drinking fluids and I keep hiking. These are my favorites:
- Energy Wild Strawberry – Crystal Light On the Go Packed with flavor and performance enhancing caffeine
and B vitamins I’ve discovered this in 2007 and have been packing it ever since. I don’t carry a stove any more so this is what I drink in the morning instead of coffee or tea. Cheapest place to get it is at Walmart; it’s 2 dollars a box there.
- Cal-Mag Fizz I read somewhere that taking calcium will reduce your chances of getting a stress fracture, so I started taking this. I like the way it tastes and it rejuvenates me like no other drink mix I have tried.
Cheapest place to buy it is at iHerb.com. Buy 4 and the shipping is free. Lemon-lime is the best tasting.
