    Thanks for the photos.. Always look forward to your adventurous threads.

    But the Heat Stroke part is serious, I see this more often than I care to say.
    Looks like you need to add a Paramedic to your posse ! :cool:

    Keep your fluids up, stress down, and get back to doing what you are doing soon ! ... IE posting your pics !!

    Glad you are O.K. Bob. White shirts and wide brimmed hats from now on. I hope it wasn't raining when you got heat stroke, that would really be embarassing...

    Glad you're recovering, but don't hit it too hard or fast. You'll find little things make you dizzy and space out for a few weeks.

    Things like this make us change our ways, don't they?

    Damn Bob... Would you quit doin' stuff to yourself! I mean the fingers were bad enough, but heat stroke - Damn! You know we hot rodders over here in AZ have this little thing we fix that situation with called A/C - then we get called sissies everywhere else! So glad to hear your O.K.!

    "hydrate or die" that is or used to be the slogan for Camelback, the company who makes water backpacks for cyclists and hikers. all the hats and white shirts in the world won't help if you are dehydrated. heat almost got me on a solo mountainbike ride a few years back. I lived and learned and got the biggest backpack water system they got.

    cool pics once again, thanks for not dying

  19. Glad I saw you out there Bob. You know the pictures I'm waiting for so I can make everyone jealous on the Hamb. Or a least some of them. Was a fun trip.

    Jeezus Bob, that's some scary shit. Glad you made it back alive. Next time get some belly dancing girls with fans to keep you cool. Thanks, as always, for the pics!
     
  21. Had heat stroke about 20 years ago and what every one is saying about being more cautious and stuff is absolutely true. Wear white, big brimmed hats and drink lots of fluids. Take care of yourself.
    Oh, by the way, thanks for the coverage. It was great as it always is from you.
    Later,
    Dick
