10 points for origionality!
Prior to all this OIF nonsense, I did a six month tour in Kuwait and our hottest day was 159 degrees under camo net. Funny, I think when it gets over 120 degrees it doesn't matter what it actually is. 120 feels the same as 150. It's just effing hot. "But it's a dry heat". Hah hah hah.
tent city in the summer!
doesn't sound to bad, it's -1 in ky this morning
i'm with you Pkato. i was there in '90-'91. it was like going out on a summer day and getting in your car when it was all closed up, but you had to stay in there for months!
I can recall many days where the reflected heat off the ground was 150'f and it would cool down to a brisk 100'f with 100% humidity with now wind.
The temp would mess with our vrc-46 radio's and radar on the boats. The humidity would rain off the canopy and make every thing very damp.
Ah yes, my days and nights in the Gulf. Seems like a 100 years ago now.
The picture I have is of my boat in the Gulf back in the day.
Screw you all - we have 10 mosiquitos per square foot in South Carolina and its 110 degress with 95% humidity.
I lost 2 lbs yesterday, 1 lb from sweat and 1 lb blood drained from those little devils.
