I am and know that. Yesterday just the ride home - 10 miles. Today just the ride to work and back - 44 miles. Tomorrow a longer ride to a retirement training at Camp Shelby - 257 mile round trip. Should break them in about right.

They should be ready for the ride home. I like to do what I call Dancing with My Wing. I find a nice straight stretch of road with little or traffic and weave down the road from the fog line to the center line for a couple miles at a time when I can, that give the shoulders of the tires a bit of a work out,with out getting too crazy, Just an Old Guys way of doing things.

Morning Friends

i know i am posting later than usual. i have been very preoccupied with a bit of C++ code for Arduino that is really tearing me a new one for some reason. anybody here fluent in C++? i could use more eyes on the issue. the GitHub issue is here: https://github.com/travisfarmer/tjf_mcp23017/issues/1
(please make code help responses on the GitHub issue, rather than here)

at work, the heat has been kicking my fathers and my butts. monday we were only able to work 6Hrs in the heat. tuesday, 5Hrs, and yesterday, 4Hrs. any paycheck is better than no paycheck, but i have bills to pay. but on the other-hand, we cut off early due to signs of heat-exhaustion, and safety is paramount.
we have been pounding the water to us, but i think we sweat it out faster than we can drink it in. heck, both of us has been peeing yellow dust.
i realize others are in far more heat in their area, but the humidity really saps the energy.

Good morning y'all. A nice ride today down to Camp Shelby for a retirement training, about 250 miles or so round trip.

Travis, it is often mid-90's and pretty humid around here in the summer. For field work we try to start very early, drink lots of water, and quit around 1:00 or 2:00. Urine color is a good indication, or "Pee in three" is a saying; if you haven't urinated in three hours, you are dehydrated. Don't let yourself get heat stressed. It'll affect you for a week.

This prospective geezer does the exact same thing.

i am supposed to urinate every three hours? winter or summer, i average about 3 per day. Hmm, perhaps i am always dehydrated. we drink quite a lot, and sweat most of it out. i will drink more, and see how that works.
we usually start work around 6:30AM, but lately 1P - 2P is much to long in the heat. we strive for quiting around noon, but lately, sooner.

i wonder if my kidney issues are why i sweat more, and pee less. i will bring that up with my doc, next visit.
but yes, good tips. i will work on drinking more. all that's left on this job is re-installing a storm door (we replaced the main door), and it is wrapped up. maybe a couple, or three hours. then back to the shop to clean out the job trailer, and equip for the next project.

Good morning to the GWOF early crew. Looks like we're heading into a slight break in the heat here in NOVA for a few days. Not going to be cool by any means but it will be cooler.

Have a great day folks.
