    Haha, thats what it feels like after 10hrs mowing in the Florida sun. I don't know how much water and Gatorade I drank today but obviously not enough. It was 90 at 8:00 in the morning. I think I will get one of those big orange coolers and mount it on my trailer.

    I spent 8 and a half hours on the tractor today, in a field. I drank about 2 gallons of water total today. If its already this bad, how bad is August going to suck?

    Have you thought of using a Camelback? Works for the Grunts.

    105 heat index today in the panhandle. It is starting to get a little warm. Can't wait til August.
    Monday was a rough one for me. About made myself sick from the heat and haven't been "right" this entire week because of it.
