    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. :hammerhead:

    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.

    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."
