    Denny, I was not aware of your blog. Finding it tonight was great. i enjoyed reading about your current travels and went back in time to read some of your previous posts. Since I live in Florida the question of heat and humidity is one I understand.

    Keep up the water and hydration and good luck with your work. Great photos and video.
