No. It wasn’t me. I have heard so much about dehydration since arriving here that I am drinking water ALL the time. A local doctor said, “You live in Moab? You’re dehydrated. End of story.” The #1 health concern in this area is not scorpions, rattlesnakes, rock falls, or tumbles — but dehydration. People seriously underestimate the amount of water their body needs, until it is too late. Thirst is NOT one of the early indicators, so you learn to drink all the time, even when not thirsty.
While I was up at Delicate Arch last night watching the sunset, my compatriot Ranger Bill was in the ER getting two liters of IV fluid pumped into him. His pulse was 173 and he was as dry as could be.
Drink your water!!
