    HOTT!

    I am taking a break now, but I almost pushed too far today. I spent most of today forging, over 90f now and well over 110f in the shop.
    Got the first symptoms of heat exaustion, pushed it a bit trying to finish a project.
    Do yourself a favor and don't push it.

    I learned about heat exhaustion in the Grand Canyon a few summers ago. We got a late start and we were trying to conserve water. Not smart. I almost didn't make it.

    This is why we don't have bladesmiths all over Texas. It's not for lack of desire. It's cause they die off!
