*Uhem* Anyhow, trick
I used for powdered Gatorade
was to find a smallish pop-like bottle of several ounces with a small
screw on cap. Rinse and get it completely dry
to avoid clumping (air out for a day or two). Put a stretch of masking tape along the length of it. Using a funnel, pour in one scoop (for 1 liter) into it, shake it so it's level and mark that line with a sharpie. You can add a "1" if you like. Repeat until full (I got up to "8").
When refilling at base camp or while hiking, filter a few ounces of water into your 1L bottle first to avoid clumping, then pour powder in until it drops to the next line (e.g. "7), more water, shake well, then top off. Carrying just the powder and sourcing the water trailside is lighter than lugging G bottles and more flavorful than just water if you're going to be camping more than a day. I try to go for a 1:3 or 1:2 Gatorade:water (just G can lead to too much electrolytes). BTW, adapting to heat means you'll need MORE water, not less
."Hikers should urinate at least 50 feet off the trail, preferably on rocks"
to which I'll add down a gap goats can't lick dried urine off of because this draws them to hiker areas and a "salt lick" will extend there stay, perhaps even conditioning them to return. I believe it's also recommend to keep "number ones" at least 100' from water sources (creeks, ponds, lakes).
Lastly, like the stomach, the bladder can increase capacity yielding longer trips between trips. Physical activity seems best as when you do construction it may be a few hours before you can get down to a honeybucket.
Congrats on your first 14er and hope some of that proves useful for you on your next one!
