Common sense should have told me that dressing for physical labor in a tropical environment would be different than dressing for a vacation, but somehow that concept went right by me the first time I came down to swing an ax or use a shovel. Simply by accident I discovered how useful scrubs are for working at False Bluff. I had packed a set because they're light weight and don't take up much suitcase space, particularly with the legs cut off the pants to turn them into shorts. What I quickly learned is how easy they are to launder and how fast they dry. Halfway through a sweaty day I can wear the scrubs into the Caribbean and they dry on me before dinner - and while drying they help keep me cool. After dinner I wash them and about a half hour after the sun comes up the next morning they're ready to wear. I keep three sets going now....
