Day 332 20181128

One of the few issues with riding in the Arizona heat twice a year is that it affects materials in a way that cooler climes won’t.  I’m talking about some sticky stuff here.  Glue.  I know from books I’ve taken out there (yes I’m old fashioned when it comes to reading materials) that if I’m not careful the pages detached from the effect of the heat on the glue.  The same happened on my last trip with the hat band on one of my riding hats with the glue failing.  Re-gluing wasn’t really an option with this type of material, but I am fortunate that I have a mother who is truely gifted with a needle and thread.  While this was a relatively small job it has none the less solved the problem permenantly.
