During my adult life I have spent more nights outdoors than in.

I have served as an outdoor guide, educator, conservationist, researcher, crew leader and enthusiast from the bear-chomps of Alaska to the rock-falls of canyon country.

Currently working at a remote research station deep in the rain forest of Borneo studying primate ecology.

+1 for regular pillows. Sit on them in the car - or use them as arm rests. There's always room for pillow.

Nothing like reviving a 1.25 year old question ;)

It appears that since Gatorade's salt levels are designed to keep you hydrated, they can't prevent you from becoming over-hydrated.

@OlinLathrop I added a few more sources, check out the Runners World bit which seems to say exactly the opposite.
