    How do y'all do it?

    Shug has an entire video on reducing calf ridge pressure. CRP happens! I went from an 11x5 to
    a 12x6—a great leap in comfort—CRP greatly reduced almost eliminated.
    Oversized hammocks lead to oversized tarps, leading to oversized packs. Now if my muscles would follow suit. It ain’t for everybody....

    I also have a theory that frequent peeing is flushing out toxins but also valuable minerals, etc. because I noticed that when I stopped drinking so much water I also had less cramping. Supplementing my food with banana chips as a snack increases my Potassium levels which I believe were being depleted by the frequent peeing. My instances of cramping have dropped to almost zero.

    This is working for me and I put it out there as anecdotal evidence.
    +1 drink when thirsty. When I over hydrate it just goes right thru me anyway. Never had cramps, but your theory makes sense and works for you, and it's something that anyone with the issue should at least try.

    UL, because nobody ever asks "How can I make my pack heavier?"
