passed out doing brakes...

Im working on my front brakes, its 109* out here, Im by the river so thats + 20% humidity, and I have no shade... so I decided to replace my front pads last night so I got up this morning and went to the parts store... I came home and started working and by the time I got the front wheel off I was swetting like hell. I pulled the caliper and replaced the first 2 pads. I put the wheel back on and went to the other side.. I pulled the wheel off and I didnt realize how hot it was and how hot I was and I passed out... Im just lucky my girlfriend came over and got me before I got too sunburnt... but I went inside for a half an hour, and went back outside and got it done.

Ya guys Im fine just a little heat stroke... and all I drink is water and gatorade but usually I water down the gatorade so I get the same amount of electrolytes but less salt. O and I drink beer but its no good to drink beer and work in the sun. doesnt mix well in my stomache while Im hot...
