  1. Any of you guys have any tricks or tips on how to deal with the long 90+ degree days besides the obvious "drink water"

  3. Plenty of them. Make sure you have plenty of cool things to drink. Wash your face and arms as much as possible.....keep those pores open.

    Lunchtime..change you under clothes, fresh body powder.

    Park your truck in the shade,as much as possible.....when you go to lunch...open all the doors to let the heat out.

    Try to pick up the pace,in the early part of the day, take advantage of the lower temperature.

    Good luck!

    UpstateNYUPSer Very proud grandfather.

    Don't think about it. The moment you focus on the heat you are done.

    I focused on the heat on Wednesday.

    Then I opened a beer and went in the pool. Problem solved.

    I'm fine until at least 95. Usually has to hit triple digits. However when it's really hot ill go as far as taking my shirt off in the bathroom and soaking it in cold water then putting it back on.

    I saw on the forums that some one suggested getting a cooler, fill with ice and put a few clean rags in. Wrap around neck or just use to cool yourself down during the day.

    Sent using BrownCafe App
