How do you train for the heat?

Actually, a lot of studies have shown that this is one of the most effective methods of controlling heat injuries. Soaking the wrap helps cool the blood going to your brain, as well.

While we each condition ourselves differently for hiking in the heat, I think we all place different values on different things as well.
I for one would gladly spend $100 on gas for a 2 hour hike up north in the middle of July. "Waste"? Not to me. That's well-spent money for my recreational (and mental) health.
But everybody is different, and I certainly understand the viewpoints of those who don't see it the same way as I do.
