|The flip-phone jumped out of my pocket when I had to move faster than a walk. Fixed it by adding some friction.|
|As you can see from the shadows it was sunny.|
|Mmmm! Meat pizza!|
Between the cramping and the chafing I was walking mighty funny by the time I neared the pull-out point. Note to self: Stretch more.
Heat index maxed at 89F. Wind was 5 mph at my back so I had very little convective cooling and almost zero shade. Two water drops worked great. Will continue to do that on warm days and long walks.
The Camelbak worked fine once I figured out how to tuck the mouthpiece up so it did not dribble. I am sure I over filled it.
Today the heat index is expected to plateau at 95F which is at the top end of my envelop. Wind will be 6 mph out of the east so I will be walking into the breeze. That will help.
We used to do that with our Zippos too... Stay hydrated and be careful out there!ReplyDelete

Just kidding. Longest hike I ever did was about 23 miles but it involved a few thousand feet elevation change, up and then down. I was one tired pup. Haven't done more than about 11 miles in quite a while (that was in NYC a few years ago). You are providing inspiration!ReplyDelete
