Okay, so it’s hot. Like really, really sweltering hot. The temptation to stay inside and watch the first season of True Blood on DVD is certainly great, but you’ve got to escape the house at some point. While there’s not much we can do to persuade mother nature to tone it down a few (hundred) degrees, there are a few tactics you can implement to keep cool on your outdoor adventures…and a few you’d do better to stay away from.
“Winter Wonderland,” “White Christmas”…sugarcoat it all you want but winter sucks. Unless you are a skiing or snowboarding fanatic, you feel my pain. I didn’t even like sledding as a child; you got to the bottom of the hill, OK, then what? You run back up to the top, your hands numb, then do it again? Awesome.
