It was very hot yesterday on the hills you have to be careful in the sun. I learned the hard way in the 70’ after 9 months Desert Rescue in Masirah in the Persian Gulf. This was the early 70,s so we were not so aware of sun damage. All we carried was water radio and fruit !
Use sunscreen and top up during the day. Sun damage is with you for ever on your skin and can lead to-serious problems later in life!
Wear a hat and sunglasses drink a lot of fluid and top up on the hill. I wear a bandana which I wet when I can to keep my neck cool. A long sleeve top is worth carrying it to stop sunburn. Keep drinking a little and often. I tend to have plenty of fluid before I go at breakfast. Due to the sheep ticks I would be careful if wearing shorts. Check yourself and of on the hill your dog. My friends dog had 6 sheep ticks on her. Lyme disease is very serious. There is also a big fire risk please be careful.
On the way home I have plenty of fluid in a cold box and rehydrate. I also wear open sandles or crocs with socks of to let my feet breathe . A good tip?
Be careful the sun is here maybe just for a few days but we need to be ready. Walk slower take your time and sit and watch nature. The flowers are out there is much to see.
I like to get away early before it gets to hot ! A good tip.
Enjoy the great weather your comments are welcome.
