Anybody besides me live without air conditioning?
Please share your favorite ways of making the summer heat (especially with high humidity) more bearable, both at home and on the road.
Of course the first and foremost is hydration. And that means mostly plain water. I mix in coffee and Diet Coke in moderation because I'm not giving those up even for the Good Old Summertime.
What else is effective? Years ago, city dwellers would sometimes sleep outdoors on hot nights. It's hard to believe now, and not very advisable...
