Wow, it sure has been a scorcher here in the southern USA. In fact, I guess it's been uncomfortably hot in many areas of the country. It's weather like this that makes me glad I didn't spend all my budget on a heavy wool kilt. I still don't have a wool kilt and I hope to get one before winter comes back around but right now I'm enjoying the advantages of wearing my light-weight SportKilts. The SportKilts were the first kilts I purchased on my year-long kilt journey and, while I really liked them, I began to realize they weren't the warmest kilts to wear when it started turning colder. They are very nice casual kilts but the material is a much thinner weight than one would want for the winter. Fortunately this is the very quality that makes them perfect for summer wearing. In the 100+ degree weather they keep me quite cool and comfortable. At least as comfortable as I can be in that kind of heat. And I should mention that I'm not at all a fan of weather above 75 degrees. I really think I need to consider a move to Maine.
Have you been able to check out the A Year In A Kilt Facebook Page? The page more than doubled in "friends" the last 24 hours. It's getting to be a bit unruly over there. It is its own kind of party for sure. Check it out if you don't mind a dose of wacky adventure in your Facebooking.
I'm hoping to put up some new photos this week. Be on the lookout!
