AND a towel or some cheap ikea bath mats to kneel on.


Yes, carry gloves. No, don’t live in Arizona.


Useful in other circumstances: when the tools are icy cold from sitting in the trunk during a New England winter, or wet being used in a torrential downpour. The mat/towel suggestion is a good one, too. So you don’t have to kneel on hot pavement, on ice or in the mud. I used to use carpet sample squares I got for 99 cents. You reach an age where kneeling tears up your kneecaps, especially wearing shorts.
