One of the sales pitches for the Kevlar is, it does not absorb heat. I sort of agree maybe 80%, but not totally. It is better than other makes I have tried. However, hot sun is still hot.

If I were you guys who doubt the water trick, give it a go. Mater of fact LD Comfort only recommends wetting your arms. Then open the sleeves and vents on your jacket and let the evaporating water help cool your body.

My Google-Fu must be weak, I can't find this place...


NM, I found it. They must not be interested in new members, they have no web presence whatsoever...

Let's just say, leave the motor running and click from the saddle.

In the spirit of the roots of this game I'll throw a clue.

It's in the same township as HEMLY TOOL and is east of the intersection of a road built through a swamp on wood planks and one that ends up being Summers in Ashtabula.

Turns out Pioneer Waterland has a Chardon mailing address although I believe they are in another township.

OR

Meet me in Burton for coffee and I'll guide you there my self

None of the popular search engines or gun sites got me anywhere on this. Only one mention on a ODNR site and all that said was "NE Geauga County".. It was my wife that had the breakthrough. Think of another way that you could search property.
