How do you all do it?!

Hey peeps...I just got back from a trip to Hilton Head, and I've gotta ask you all....

How on EARTH can you all bear the humidity?!? I must say that the scenery is most definetly breathtaking, but OMG...even with a vert, i was BAKED anytime i even went outside! The profuse sweating got annoying by like, the 2nd day .....i know, i'm just being a baby, but wow, i was soooo surprised.

I had a great time and did get to see the sites around there. Unbelievably, I only saw ONE Cobra on the WHOLE trip, and it appeared to be a Red 96 coupe in SC somewhere. I was hoping to run into a few more, and maybe ask them if they knew about SCMC.

Anyway, just wanted to drop you all a line with my whining. You really do have some nice states, even amidst all the rediculous humidity!

Glad you got a chance to come down to our neck of the woods, next time maybe you can catch us at one of our events when you're down this way!

Stay cool

It does seem to be rather humorous, but like, every other person we ran into seemed to be from some part of Ohio. I'm not sure what the connection was, but it was reallhy freakin me out...man.

Great time though...we even got to parasail which was the TOTAL bomb-diggity

Yes, the humidity can be brutal in the summer. Wreaks havoc with our Cobra's also.

same ? to you, how do you stand all that white sh*t falling from the sky for like 6 mths? Not driving your car because you don't want all that salt all over it (and cobras suck in the snow).

I lived in the "North" for half my life. I'll take the heat and humidity anyday over that freezing stuff..I can drive my cobra all year long, the motorcycle most of the year..

And BTW, you were at the beach, what did you expect??

No friggin joke....That was the first time i've ever seen the temperature get to the "A" on the gauge...I thought something was wrong at first

I'll bet that cooling fan mod would most definetely be useful around your parts...hands down

there is no way those waves were affected by Dennis. From my experiences at Hilton Head, they have decent size waves there. Next time, go to the Outer Banks of North Carolina, then you will see true beauty. Try Buxton, NC. That is where the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse is at.
