I've done the really cold stuff, riding, hunting, etc. up north. My wife has some hand warmer packs, from last time she went hunting a few years ago, but I wanted a more permanent, but not overkill solution.

I have historically been in very cold environments with a lot less clothing than most, just my hands get frozen easily. If I decide to ride to the north in winter time, I'll look into a warmer solution. I don't like going around like Randy Parker in "A Christmas Story".

The sane solution would be to drive the Suburban with heated seats.
That was what I thought too. One year me and my brother trucked our bikes to SC then rode to Orlando and on to Bike Week in Daytona. (Blizzard up North)

My brother brought his heated vest and the rest of the crew broke his balls about it.

Well, it was cool in Daytona, maybe 60 degrees in the sun. On the way back to Orlando, well after dark, we froze our balls off.

Of course my brother had his heated vest on and just grinned at the rest of us!

I bought some of those chinese heated grip inserts.
I don't get a lot of requests to mount them down here neither.

I mean. Chinese heating element. What could go wrong?
Better add a breaker or fuse.

Rained a 1/4 inch last night. Proper rain at the right time of day for my drought ridden front yard. Windy today but was in the upper 60's. Dried off everything in no time in the desert. Upper 60s and 50s all week with a few sprinkles. Usually after midnight.

Shop dogs gots lots of places to hide , stay warm, stay dry.
