Here's some sound advice from John Page:
- Especially for the ladies: don't hesitate to drink lots of water in really hot conditions even though you will have to make frequent potty stops. As a wise man (Paul Ferry) once said "'Tis far, far better to pee than to pass out."
- Bring a 12" long scrap of 2x6 lumber to act as a base for your jack when changing tires on soft soil.
- Avoid wearing cotton clothing in extreme weather, either hot or cold. Cotton stays wet.
- Don't wear heavy lug-soled boots for difficult driving; it's too easy to miss the brake or accelerator.
