Tuesday Travel Rants: Sweating it Up

I remember being a little kid, watching movies of dudes out jogging, sweat patches on their back and under their arms, and I sat there thinking that’s pretty cool. It was manly, powerful, a show of strength.


sweating when you travelNow I wish those patches would just f*ck off. Laundry is difficult enough on the road without drenching each and every shirt you put it on. I’m sure you guys know what I’m talking about. No air con in your hotel room, 35 degrees outside, hot chicks everywhere and there you are trying to look cool as beads of sweat drip down your back. Classy.


Where the manliness power now? I look more like a kiddy fiddler than stand-up guy. And whats with the locals? No deodorant, no air con and they’re bone dry, I know they grew up here but Jesus throw me a fricken bone here. And you traveling girls? You seem to deal with it pretty well too. Leaving us guys, in clammy, wet shirts, failing to look cool, with a bag full of stinking tshirts, and no laundry services for weeks. Can’t wait to choose which shirt to rewear tomorrow. Not. Oh and its 36 degrees in Macedonia now. Wonderful. As another bead of sweat hits the keyboard.

    For this problem I suggest you use a product called Drysol. I live in the Dominican Republic, where it’s extremely hot and humid, and this product works amazingly, I don’t get to sweat under my arms anymore. I’m not sure if it is harmful or not, but I bought it in a local drugstore and it really solved my problem. Hope you can find it wherever you are!

    Cheap vaporizers are floating everywhere yet being pretty active about their quality and services.
    Take 2,000 milligrams daily in capsule or extract form.
    Vaporizing is the process, in which some substance is
    heated to a temperature just below its combustion temperature, and heating
    it just below the combustion temperature would let the
    substance to emerge out its natural essence from its solid form and misty
    vapors would be produced.

    naturally like your web-site but you need to check the spelling on quite a few of your posts. Several of them are rife with spelling issues and I find it very troublesome to tell the truth nevertheless I¡¯ll certainly come back again.

    Try using some talcum powder.

    Also, apparently you have never seen me in Japan in the summer.
    It’s not pretty. I don’t allow photos.
    Seattleites should not be exposed to anything above 80F, no humidity.

    Man I know what you mean. It must be a guy thing. We have three sons and they all have the same issue as I do. I sweat like a damn pig and have large wet pits when it gets above 70 degrees. Drives me crazy. I try to wear undershirts to absorb some of the perspiration, but it just makes me hotter! If you find a solution please publish it!!!
