Count me in on both, being reading on area hikes and this was going to be one of my next. Did the Lakeland Scrub a couple of weeks ago and it was HOT. It's been a long hot summer for me, missed being in Maine this summer. Still finishing up new kit myself. Thanks samsara.
I hear ya! It can be rough out there. We were burning last week and I got overheated worse than I've ever been. I was in rough shape but finally managed to make it out to the road after lots of rests and a bottle of water poured on my head/neck and down my back. It took me about 20 minutes. Not fun...
