    Do drink enough!!!

    You really need it ...

    For years, we have all been told of the importance of water. The general guideline has been to drink 2 litre of water each day. For a person who is not living an active lifestyle this may be enough, but if you are physically active, you need more water than that. That is especially true if you are hiking in the Hoogeveen area due to the fact the average temperature might be higher than other areas and the landscape goes slightly up and down.

    Water is essential for everyone, especially if you are hiking. Water helps almost every part of the human body function properly. Our bodies are almost two-thirds water, and proper hydration is essential to keep your body functioning properly during the hike. Some of the things water does in the body are:
    * The brain is 75% water; even moderate dehydration can cause headaches and dizziness;
    * Water regulates body temperature, which is especially important here in the area where the temperatures can be so brutal;
    * Water carries nutrients and oxygen to all cells in the body
    * Blood is 92% water;
    * Water protects and cushions vital organs;
    ·* Water converts food into energy (which is something you will need on a 3 to 4 hour hike…);
    * Muscles are 75% water, and you will use many muscles on a trail as you climb above the desert floor.

    Reading a map

    by Jerelis Written Dec 12, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus, the catchy title of the 1992 bestseller by John Gray, succinctly expresses an ancient dilemma. What--if anything--do men's and women's brains do differently?

    The general statement that men and women respond and behave differently under the same circumstances is true; For example, from the crib, male babies tend to be more aggressive and females more passive. As adults, in spatial operations, men have the edge in such skills as negotiating a maze, reading a map, and quickly discriminating between right and left. Men also perform better than women when asked to visualize an object and imagine rotating it. On the other hand, women tend to perform better than men when asked to look at objects of different shapes, sizes, and colors, and then to group them in some order.

    This still doesn't explain why Relinde turns the map all around when I'm asking for the road to travel, while I like the map at one point so I can better visualize our position. Help!

    Parked cars!

    Watch out!

    For us this is a very weird situation... Imagine this:

    The main road toward the hospital Bethesda has 2 lanes and you're only allowed to park your car at 1 lane during the visiting hours of the hospital. This is only appropiate whenever the regular parking spots at the hospital are all taken. This means that at 1 moment there won't be any cars and at another moment you'll face some parked cars at your lane.

    In our opinion this causes dangerous situations. So be carefull!!!

    Directions
    Nearby the hospital Bethesda, at the road called De Bult.
