hydration systems during 6+ mile swim?
I'm getting ready for the NE Kingdom swim. I get thirsty and have tried a few ways to drink (non-lake flavored) water while treading water. The water flow was too slow and I found myself too breathless to suck on my camelback (which was on my Yaker's boat) and tipping a cup up (Tervis) proved difficult too while treading water.
Has anyone tried the runner's collapsible flasks (with or without the straw??) or can you share your favorite way to get water in, (and maybe even keep the burps of air to a minimum?!) Please don't tell me to drink the lake, I don't like it. Thanks.
