Out fishing with Annie on his lap, a cigar in one hand and a ginger ale in the other, watching the sunset.

Here's a cheap trick from the Ultramarathon Cycling world:
A couple of tube socks, filled with ice. Tie them together and hang them over the back of your neck. It cools the blood flow to the brain very nicely and helps you keep thinking straight. It also helps keep the core temp down. It worked across the Salton Sea Basin for the guy I crewed for on RAAM last year....Rob Lucas. Temps were 109F and we kept the ice socks stocked and sprayed him down with a water mist as needed. The Ice Socks though really did help!
