was up to 19 C. and everyone was wearing their swimming costumes in the summer heat wave.
Hypothermia can be a killer....We had a call out one night in the dark and found an unconscious casualty on a beach three miles walk from a public highway.....Disposal was carried out with a helo medivac involving a 60 mile flight to the incident and a 10 mile evacuation flight
Just another badly planned walk along a beach....anyone heard of an S61....
over the nylon tights. Perhaps hiking trousers and waterproof over trousers....each layer is removed
or replaced as the temperature changes.
A short stretchy skirt worn under a walking or hiking skirt is useful.. I am used to standing up and
walking about for a whole day out of doors...this is how I plan my outfit for the day.

Try Cabelas or Bass Pro Shop in their clothing departments. They carry a fair amount of hiking gear including Skirts.Happy-N-Skirts wrote:TO: Skirtpettiman You mentioned you saw a woman wearing a "hiking skirt." Do you know what brand it is? Please describe it. I wear skirts for hiking and am curious about what is available for hikers. Skirts are great for hiking and driving to where the hike will begin. unlimited stride, ventilation, freedom, comfort.
Anyone else have suggestions for hiking skirts?

For me it's polyester speedo swimming trunks with nylon leggings worn over/ all worn under a nicely lined hiking skirt.weeladdie18 wrote:I found a bargain in charity shop today. I have been recently talking about a lady wearing an above the Knee Hiking Skirt .....today I found a black
