I am wondering how much I'm likely to "suffer" with hot flashes while in the Western Caribbean next week. I plan to bring my own water bottle in my back pack and let my dd carry a spare in her backpack. I've even got a little hand-held electric fan that dd got me for a Christmas present! And of course I'll be wearing a hat. But I live in the Southwest and rarely spend much time outside during the hot summer days. How have you fared and what remedies did you use?
