Saturday Jackspiration: Keeping Cool in the Summer Months

I don't know where you live, but where I am, on the shore of one of the Great Lakes, it's been hotter than hell. Add humidity to that and everyone has a constant case of swamp ass.

Jackie, of course, also lives next to one of the Great Lakes, and he has some tips for us on how to stay cool during the hot, humid, dog days of summer.

Take off your shirt and hold your arms up in the air, to cool and air out your pits.

This is a fairly obvious suggestion - go for a swim.

This is for the independently wealthy out there - just go up to high altitudes in your glider.

Tuck your hand into your pants and pull the waistband away from your skin - it'll send a cooling rush of air...down there.

Even a heavy coat with a leather vest can be summer wear when you pair it with a windy gorse hill and a rainbow.

And for the truly disgustingly hot days, there's just no substitute for taking it all off. That's right...go starkers.
