Its so freaking hot

Actually today is not so bad, high 90's with low humidity. He should be thankful the race wasn't last weekend.
This coming from a guy that grew up in Colombia and lives in south Florida.

Try 108*F at 1:30pm then working across a freshly seal coated asphalt parking lot.
Temps were averaging @ 116-118*F next to the curbing until we stopped at 3:00pm.
Volatilized a one quart can of solvent weld that a helper left the top slightly loose in under thirty minutes.

Found out real quick the next morning I needed to be drinking more water than I was. My padded toilet seat didn't help as it felt like I crapped razor blades instead of dropping the kiddos off in the pool like usual.

Last sat at Atlantic City's strongest man contest on the jersey shore ,it was 116 on the heat index on the boardwalk for 2 events. Then the last 3 events were in the sand and ocean. Thought alot more guys were gonna pass out or quit. Only 3. One town over was 123 on heat index. Oh yeah I took first place overall in the heavies class!!!landscapers know how to handle heat baby!!!

Actually I was challenged this past weekend by another landscaper chris and yes brothers I came out on top. What I'd like to do now is put up an open challenge to the thousands of landscapers across the globe. I am a humble man but know where I stand. Anyone willing to challenge can go to north american strongman sign up as a member 40$ and enter any of the 5-8 contests I do per year and I will accept an open challenge. Post it here or there I usually travel the east coast but I might head to tunica Mississippi in Nov for nationals ( depending on fall cleanup) sept Arizona or a platinum plus in CA in October? It's an iside joke between I and the wsm second runner up 09 , but it stuck as my title and follows me to each contest receiving many followers. It's actually quite spectacular! Good luck."
