    newbie tip for other newbies!

    the one thing I learned today was the value of chapstick! Man my lips would have fallen off if I hadn't had some on.

    I keep a natural version of chapstick in a chest pocket.
    I like the natural ones a little better. It comes
    in a tiny little tin that almost lies flat.

    I got the natural, I tried the others and didn't care for
    the flavor much. But then I never did like flavored lip goo.

    i like the medicated chapsticks, cause when i put it on, it kinda gives it a slight burning/cool sensation. feels nice

    I hate chapstick/lip balms. I hate the feeling (sticky-slick feeling) and the taste (tried various flavors, and the "plain" - yuck!)

    I use a face mask; it more than protects my lower face just fine. Goggles for the eyes. Hat for the head.
