Not only does dehydration alter brain activity, it has a profound, negative effect on the body's organs, hearing, eyes, muscles, and ligaments. Also causes constipation. 

In general, depending on severity,  dehydration can ruin the human body to the point of death.

That's why they sell Bloody Mary's early in the morning!

Seriously though, dehydration is something to be aware of in any outdoors activity in the sun: it doesn't even have to be really hot. And water is your friend, beer and other alcohol not so much (until after the proceedings are over, I feel). :beer:

Which is why my ideal is get hydrated the day before I play a round of golf.  And carry some water on the course.  But it ain't easy to ensure you are always hydrated.  The risks associated with dehydration are very serious though
