What do you do to stay cool?
Hey Everyone! Its starting to get hot here and its not even June yet. Its staying consistently in the high 80's and will be in the mid nineties this weekend. I'd like your tips on keeping cool. I dont want to lose any detecting time this summer because I'm a wuss in the heat. LOL Thanks!

When water is available for more than drinking i use a linen napkin. Wet then wring lightly .can be worn loose around neck or under a hat draping over back of neck. Light weave and color loose clothes. Slower speed. Keep up on fluids. Hunt early,late,or after dark. Happy hunting.

I pee on my t-shirt and wrap it around my head...
I learned this technique from Bear Grylles and it's been very effective in high heat!!

TRanegar, that'd be kind of hard,cause I'm a girl and hunt in a lot of public places. If I send you my Tshirt will you do the honors.

I'm in Kentucky and its getting hot here to. I found a thing at Walmart that you soak in cold water then put around your neck. It stays cool for hours. I can't remember what its called, but it looks like short snake and feels like a bean bag.

Get a camelbac, I wear one always when I go detecting, always have nice cool water, tea or some other sugar free beverage with me............

Come out from under your bed today...... DO SOMETHING!

Let's see, 54 degrees, raining, and snow above 4,000 feet here today. Guess I'm not worried about cooling off. Just put another piece of oak on the fire.

I have a mister that I use on hot days. it fits in a water bottle holder, pump it up and it sprays a cool mist. It's great for cooling down but it evaporates quickly.

I agree with the Camel Back and neck wraps. I also usually try to wear white and also wear a hat. Where I live it's usually around 105 all summer

all usa metal detector users are already cool a cross between Indiana Jones and the fronz thats the way we brits see it over here we tend to be classed as geeky history buffs

My way to beat the heat is get out in the early morning. If I can't get out in the morning then I drink plenty of water to stay cool.
Keep calm and dig on
