I don't even know for sure that's where I lost it. All I know is that I no longer have it. We're staying in one of the houses on the cliffs.

Wearing a helmet, leather jacket, textile trousers, boots and gloves.
Sometimes just sometimes I wonder if massive skin loss would be so bad.

Obviously it would be, hence sweating in places you shouldn't sweat.

I have lots of vents in my Weiss Textile jacket and they are really effective (but not when stopped LOL) - wearing Kevlar 'draggin' jeans at the moment which are cooler than 'proper' trousers (yeah I know they don't have knee-pads etc - but they are fully lined with Kevlar from just above ankle to waist level and life is full of compromises )- and a white helmet which helps a lot but not when sun is shining through the visor.
