Comments
Comments: Great day for a hike. I went up Whiteface, over, up Passaconaway. You know how we have wind chill charts that show the difference in "feel like" temperature during the winter? I think we should have heat/humidity charts to show the difference in "feel like" temperatures for days like today. Holy smokes! Glad I packed way more fluids than I thought I needed - though I did fill up at the spring going up Dicey's to Passaconaway as an extra precaution.
