97 On Thursday. How do YOU stay cool?
 
So, we'll be tailgating starting about 12:30 and the forecast calls for 97 on Thursday. I sweat just from the Fighting Cock Bourbon in my system alone....I'm not too much of a man to say we use baby wipes(chilled in the cooler) and a spray bottle to keep cool....I'll also run into the RV if its too damn unbearable. What do YOU do to stay cool tailgating in 97 degree heat in Cola? I may incorporate new....and more 'manly' ideas...

At 97, there won't be any cool to go around.

Hydrate, wear light colored clothes, take shade break, or try a mist fan. Or if you are feeling sick, bail out.

Thats a helluva difference. I've kept an eye on TWC and didn't think about WIS....Is WIS pretty accurate?

They seem fairly accurate... I like the WIS first alert weather app for storm warnings etc. So that got me in the habit of using them. Granted it is August in Columbia, it will be plenty hot :)

You should stop by Mast General Store at Main St & Taylor and pick these up. They are great for keeping you cool, just don't put it in direct sun. They will stay "wet" for around 2 hours. My brother that lives in Tucson uses it all the time during the summer. Tuck it under your collar/shirt, and it won't even be seen.

shade of tents, I run a large fan off the honda generator, put one of those chill wraps around your neck. When it syops working put it back in the coller for a couple of minutes and use again. wear light weight clothing but it's columbia in august, heat is to be expected.

I take a fan and plug into a generator ! Spraying every so often to make a mist!

I'll be coming in around noon or one and probably hitting up the Wild Hare in the Vista until about 4 or so. Then, once out of there will begin my trek to Williams-Brice. Love watching the teams warm up and it charges me up even more so that by kick off I'm on fire with energy. My suggestion stay in the shade or indoors until it is time to go to the Brice! :wink:
