Man! Sometimes the heat is intolerable. Dangerous if you don't watch for the warning signs.
When we stop, Cooper gets a good cold drink of water.
Lisa and I drink from our hydration packs while we're riding.
We fill them with ice and add water or Gatorade at each stop.
Wet our clothes sometimes.
Cooper has an ice pack in his crate so when it's really hot I make him stay inside with the ice.
This isn't his favorite, but sometimes he needs to be kept cool.
He prefers to see where we are, so usually I don't close the crate at all. It does offer him a little shade which is ok up to 90 degrees or so, but over 90 he needs more.
And sometimes we just need to get inside where it's air conditioned for a while.
