June Trek Tips

It will be hot on the Trek trail. Some trekkers carry a small “mister” spray bottle for cooling (but remember everything has to fit in a 5-gallon bucket and a Big Bag Ziploc).

Another option is a handmade cooler scarf. An American Legion Auxiliary group makes these for US troops. You can find instructions at The polymer gel crystals for the scarf can be purchased at garden nurseries or craft stores (Michaels, Hobby Lobby, etc.). A commercial product is shown below.

A pair of work gloves may help prevent blisters for those pushing/pulling the handcarts. Finger-less gloves may be more comfortable and cool. Bicycle gloves would work. They are light weight and compact.
