My thoughts exactly

I spend years ww2 and cw reenacting in wool uniforms in summer and work a bit outside so I'm accustomed to summers around here... They can be brutal to Midwesterners and new englanders

2017-08-07 02:53:37 UTC  

Yeah, it's actually looking more like 85% humidity now that I check. Still only about a couple more degrees difference. I tend to run warm but the heat never really bothers me.

2017-08-07 02:53:55 UTC  

9/10 UV index tho so for us very HUWHITE people, be sure to take that into account.

2017-08-07 02:54:06 UTC  

Especially considering we'll be in a large, open park with very little shade.

Detroit guys - I was there for 13 years and now im in deep South and I am outside a lot doing manual labor when Im not wage cucking. Plan hydration into your battle plan down to the amount of Gatorade you will carry. By the time you feel thristy, it's too late to get the hydration into your cells.

2017-08-07 03:03:00 UTC  

Thank yo in for the advice comrade

2017-08-07 03:03:15 UTC  

Thanks for that heads up Karl. A lot of our guys have lived in deserts for a few years and we'll for sure have a solid plan in place.

I'm bringing a gallon of water in my pack.

The 2 emts in my group are bringing IVs for those who do not listen

2017-08-07 03:04:57 UTC  

Plus concentrated liquid Gatorade, 1 squirt per 8 oz watee

2017-08-07 03:05:08 UTC  

@Stannisthemannis did you medic invites for those two

2017-08-07 03:06:08 UTC  

I told them to but they are almost boomers when it comes to discord so they didn't sign up. I'll pester them again

2017-08-07 03:07:20 UTC  

They're on threema though

2017-08-07 03:30:58 UTC  

@V I T A L I T Y Sounds good - channel your inner Bob Probert

2017-08-07 03:39:29 UTC  

Concentrated Liquid Gatorade?

2017-08-07 03:42:06 UTC  

Yep, I usually take it backpacking to hide iodine tablet taste when drinking from springs, creeks etc

2017-08-07 03:42:27 UTC  

Comes in a small squirt bottle. Wal-Mart/Grocery stores sell it near me

2017-08-07 03:50:35 UTC  

I dont want concentrated sugar tho

2017-08-07 09:56:38 UTC  

Bring Pedialyte @Hand Banana

2017-08-07 15:07:51 UTC  

Probably better to wear regular sunglasses which would double as spray protection as well as dox protection.

2017-08-07 15:26:37 UTC  

After much research for something suitable and relatively inexpensive, plus slightly "tacticool", behold:

2017-08-07 15:43:03 UTC  

I'm bringing my DeWalt goggles. Lol.

2017-08-07 16:15:49 UTC  

My main concern is potentially infringing the no-mask laws; I would only wear these if shit really hit the fan, otherwise it would be sunglasses

2017-08-07 16:19:30 UTC  

VA will jump your ass over the masks, and ten to one says the nigger vice mayor won't be trying to get charges dropped for us if anything happens.

2017-08-07 16:20:48 UTC  

Would ski goggles work? Lol

2017-08-07 16:21:00 UTC  


2017-08-07 16:21:01 UTC  

Ideally you want something snug fitting and shatter proof.

2017-08-07 16:21:32 UTC  

Keep in mind nothing you will have is likely to completely stop the pepper spray, just slow it down. It does work its way around seals and get in.

2017-08-07 16:21:39 UTC  

ESS are just that and can be found at any decent surplus shop

2017-08-07 16:49:22 UTC  

And something with an anti-fog coating, or to which you have applied and anti-fog coating. It's going to be hot.

2017-08-07 19:43:23 UTC  

ESS goggles are fucking huge though, I have a pair

2017-08-07 19:44:01 UTC  

They have trouble staying in place if you just wear them by themselves without a helmet as well

2017-08-07 19:51:10 UTC  

I don't have that problem

2017-08-07 19:51:18 UTC  

Fit me fine

2017-08-07 21:24:12 UTC

2017-08-07 21:24:19 UTC  

So should bring my armor now ...

2017-08-07 21:27:04 UTC  

Hell with it. I'm bringing my shield baton and my flagpole

2017-08-07 21:53:23 UTC  

Don't wearbody armor
