    Drying gear

    So everything got soaked yesterday in my 1st race at Summit. Boots, suit, gloves, etc are still water logged today.

    What's the best way to dry these things for when I go to NHMS Friday?

    I haven't checked the weather back home yet to see if laying them outside will be the best solution.

    You're talking about the helmet fan concept basically? I don't think Jim is familiar.

    For the suit

    The boots should dry just fine as long as they are out in the open where they can get some air
    Gloves too. really.. If you need to hurry them along you could put them in the dryer on no heat.... It's best to pull them out and jamb your hands in them once in a while to keep them in shape..
    I just washed my gloves and they only took about 2.5 days to dry out sitting on a towel on the counter.

    Yup, do you ski/board? They have them in lodges.

    You can make these pretty cheap actually for one suit out of PVC.

    Made a boot, hat, and glove dryer for the farm. I have it on a timer so it comes on 2 hours before morning chores so everything is dry and warm. You can buy everything at any hardware store except the fan, which you can get direct from Digikey for less than $15.
