Sweat...this hot weather. What do you do???

I usually wear a ball cap to keep sun off my head but lately our humidity level thinks its August here in Arkansas and I'm laterally dripping with sweat! Trying to keep it out of my eyes while I work is a pain. Wiping sweat MORE than working. Any one wear head bands or tie a kerchief around your head? Other ideas?

I tie a t shirt around my head. I'm sure I look pretty ridiculous but it keeps sweat out of my eyes and feels like it keeps you a little cooler too.

How about bone of the cloth tubes that are filled with those plastic type pellets that absorb water , throw it in a cooler with ice and water and then tie it around your head or wrap it around your neck. Not sure what they are actually called but remember using them at the races when it was unbearable and no shade.

All you can do is suffer through it and drink lots of water.

I don't know why but a lot of fellers dropped out early this year, wonder if the heat will cause whats left to quit.

John McEnroe 80's sweatband.

I usually wear a cotton boonie hat. Sucks up enough and the brim acts like a radiator.
