  •  PLEASE do NOT underestimate.. (none)
    .. the truly miserable heat of Texas in August.  Bring WAY more than hats and water.  

    Bring:

    • ice in coolers, lots of water bottles on that ice,

    • slather fully with the highest strength block you can get,

    • wear light clothes,

    • have a tent or something that can provide even 100 degree shade, but shade,

    • have on hand the misters that fan and mist you at the same time.  

    • gatoraide and dont bring anything heavy to eat.  

    IMPORTANT: Designate at least two people (or two groups of people) to NOT participate.  

    One to record and get those pics and video AWAY from the scene ASAP and MORE importantly, someone else to be dedicated to keeping you all hydrated and deal with those who fail in the heat.

    If you are not careful you will not end up in jail but in the hospital.

    If its going to be 100 degrees here in MA today, what do you suppose Crawford TX will be?

    PS:

    PLEASE dont take kids out for a day of protest in Texas heat (just DONT)

    The SM-62 Snark was a USAF intercontinental nuclear cruise missile that was operational in 1960-1961.
