Nice kayak out to the bay. Perfect weather.

Seem to have indigestion today.  Probably too much beer or pop.  I need to address this issue for my New Years resolutions.

Thursday - December 27

Driving long distance eating/drinking schedule:

FOOD - eat only small amounts of things every hour, 1/2 sandwich, 1/2 muffin, etc...good things, no junk food. It is very important to NOT get full.

DRINK - Take 1-1.5 hours to finish off caffeinated soda NOT diet (Mountain Dew is perfect), repeat.  You want the caffeine AND sugar effect.  If you drink black coffee, still take a few swigs of soda for the sugar...or replace soda with something like a Starbucks Venti Carmel Machiatto for both caffeine and sugar.  Take a few swigs avery 5-10 minutes.

With this metering schedule, I was able to drive a solid 7pm to 4:30am with no music.

*My family and I drive to Florida a few times a year for the holidays and I have slowly perfected the eating, drinking schedule for maximum driving awakeness.

This schedule is almost like a long distance endurance event nutrition, though a lot lower on the water intake.
