Staying Warm and Comfortable

This Winter Was one of the worst that NYC has seen in a long time. It was a true test of my new underwear. What? you say, yes my underwear. You see this year I donated my old well worn cotton long johns and tops, and replaced it all with the new Hi-Tech UnderArmour. I spent some serious money,but it was worth every buck. My biggest problem is when I become active I sweat a lot, and with the old cotton underwear when that gets damp, it stays damp, and you are no longer warm and comfortable. My friend if this all too familiar than you need to switch. After you get passed the price tag, trust me, you will be much happier for it. I recommend the ColdGear Evo Longsleeve Compression Mock Baselayer Top, and the Compression Bottoms. Don’t forget the Heavy Cushion Boot Socks. You can still keep your cotton underwear and put it over the UA. Not only will will you be Warm and Comfortable,but Dry as well.

Recommended GPS for New York City

I have tested several brands and models of GPS’s here in the city.  Through many trials and errors I have come to the conclusion that the Rand McNally brand units have the clear advantage over the PC Miler and Garmin truck units that I tried.  Although nothing I have tried as far as navigation units is perfect – and I don’t actually expect one ever will be 100% – it appears that Rand has done some serious investigating into what is a legal truck route in NYC and what is not!  They are available in most truck stops these days and lots of sites. However I got my unit here because there were folks who actually answered the phone when I was looking for truthful advice on these things.
