I wear long baggy shorts here in florida so I have some air flow. Any thing to stay cool.

I wear shorts unless it's below 50 degrees...occasionally I'll get tagged with something but for the most part I just have grass stuck to me.

What is the right way to use a line trimmer so you don't get whacked?

If I'm chopping down a bunch a brush I pull out the kid's old pair of soccer shin guards. Works fine and free.

The WE Chapps work great if you're wearing shorts. Not only do they protect your legs, but since they drape over the top of the shoe, you get NO grass down in your boots anymore. No more green socks.
