Message from Izat - VA in Charlottesville 2.0 #gear_and_attire
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
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.
9/10 UV index tho so for us very HUWHITE people, be sure to take that into account.
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.
Thank yo in for the advice comrade
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
Plus concentrated liquid Gatorade, 1 squirt per 8 oz watee
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
They're on threema though
Concentrated Liquid Gatorade?
Yep, I usually take it backpacking to hide iodine tablet taste when drinking from springs, creeks etc
Comes in a small squirt bottle. Wal-Mart/Grocery stores sell it near me
I dont want concentrated sugar tho
SHIT THE PLANTS CRAVE
In case the police deploy pepper spray, would these be permitted? https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B01A12J3GI/ref=mp_s_a_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1502117472&sr=8-1&pi=AC_SX236_SY340_QL65&keywords=dewalt+goggles&dpPl=1&dpID=51OnLlU2IyL&ref=plSrch
Probably better to wear regular sunglasses which would double as spray protection as well as dox protection.
After much research for something suitable and relatively inexpensive, plus slightly "tacticool", behold:
I'm bringing my DeWalt goggles. Lol.
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
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.
Would ski goggles work? Lol
Ideally you want something snug fitting and shatter proof.
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.
ESS are just that and can be found at any decent surplus shop
And something with an anti-fog coating, or to which you have applied and anti-fog coating. It's going to be hot.
ESS goggles are fucking huge though, I have a pair
They have trouble staying in place if you just wear them by themselves without a helmet as well
I don't have that problem
Fit me fine
So should bring my armor now ...
Hell with it. I'm bringing my shield baton and my flagpole
Don't wearbody armor
