Have them drink until the color of their eyes is cherry bug juice!

Oh by the way, when you are checking up on your Scouts, take a peek at your SM/ASM. Many of us are packing a few more pounds than we need and are candidates for heat injuries.

You will have your two drinks at every meal - one way or the other.....

clysis
[klī′sis]
Etymology: Gk, klyster, washout
the nonoral insertion or injection of a fluid into tissue spaces, the rectum, or the abdominal cavity, such as the administration of an enema. It is used when IV access is not possible. Mosby's Medical Dictionary, 8th edition. © 2009, Elsevier.


They know I am serious when I tell them the camp nurse is actually there to save them from me. :lol:

I am big proponent of appropriate fluid and electrolyte replacement, and the boys know it. Being a Paramedic-Specialist (it's an Iowa thing) and an RN as well as something of a nominal expert on wilderness medicine - I'm actually published, and we [the other authors and I] are working on the 3rd edition of the work - and I take the well-being of my charges very seriously.

I LIKE it! I think I'll borrow that one for future use.

I'll use another movie quote although they are referring to different liquid intakes:

From Animal House..."My Advice is to start drinking heavily" :P
