I'm wearing shorts and a t-shirt.  Heck, I might just wear the t-shirt.

I think BB doesn't understand going commando.

Let me just say it was fantastic and the temp soured to 84 degrees F.   I'll post photos here in a few.  Only three of us made the long journey and I found myself in the company of two delightful ladies of the trail.

No video.  I am sorry.  With only the three of us and me in the lead, it just wasn't practical.

The day started off cool enough, but the humidly was very high with no wind and before the 6 hour hike was over, it hit 84 degrees.  With only 3 hikers, we were a slim, but prepared group and I set us out at was later determined to be a grueling pace.  We completed 2/3's of it in just under 3 hours took a break and then began to slow way down.  By the time we realized we may be becoming fatigued, I led my 2 hikers on a "shortcut" which started easy and rapidly disintegrated into a deep and muddy ravine crossing that just about done us in physically.  Finally making it back on course, I left my friends and high-tailed it on foot back to my Jeep over 3 miles away.  I was able to use "special tools" to arrive fairly close to where they had traveled to (without leaving a destructive foot print) and bring them safely back so we could finish the last leg.  It's a great hike and very doable, but the high temperature drained us and if there is any chance that the humidity level and temperature will get as high as 70 degrees, I would seriously consider rescheduling your hike.  Photos on the cache page.
