A Shady Idea...

Yesterday i drove through an alley and found a brand new awning umbrella in the trash. Today i mounted a piece of 2" pvc, with U bolts, to the bumpers of both GMCs
A little shade goes a long way in this heat.

Here are some pics:

I agree as I sit under my EZ-up canopy I've had since 2008...
Truth be told, I'm writing this while sitting in a cooled down hot tub.

I bumped up the chemicals and use it as a soaker/jetted tub for my back.
Right now water temp is 99 without heat... The air jets will cool it to 93

Some citrus vodka in that ice tea/lemonade would further help with the back. As for the hydration... Probably not so much!
