    Question Where to find...

    Hydropel.

    It seems that BodyGlide Sticks took over (which I hate). Can only find online anymore but don't want to pay the extra shipping and handling. Tried every running/outfitter/pharmacy/etc. place in the area. Closest I've come to finding a similar replacement is diaper rash ointment and BodyGlide Liquified Powder. They're ok, I guess, but it's not the same dang it...

    Check bicycle shops.

    As I live, declares the Lord God, I take no pleasure in the death of the wicked, but rather that the wicked turn back from his way and live. Ezekiel 33:11
    Did Adam and Eve rest on the first Sabbath? Scripture only says that God did. Are we thinking yet?

    I think I've sean it in local dive shops.

    Dicks, Dunhams, MC Sports all carry it. Ask. It is usually moved to the area of the "sport of the season."

    Neither of the Sports Authority's have heard of it, and the only Dicks doesn't have them in stock. They suggested I order it online...which kind of defeats the purpose:/

    I'm still on the hunt. I've checked two of the three bike shops. They know what it is but thus far, are now just carrying Body Glide Sticks. The last bike shop was closed today. I never thought to check dive shops, thanks Snowman. Thanks for the ideas.

    I bought some today from Blue Ridge Mt. Sports, when I got a few dry sacks online. The total was over 50.00, so I got shipping free. If you still have purchases to make, you might combine them. Just a thought, I didn't want to pay shipping either and I live 100 miles from an outfitter, so it was not in any store near here in B.F.E. TENNESSEE where I live.

    If you ship it to a store or if they have this option, the shipping is free.

    I asked about this and the two associates I talked with didn't seem to know.

    Basically, I gave up and used the BodyGlide Liquified Powder. I can tell it's not quite the same but I am getting the same results (no blisters, barely any hot spot), which is what really matters. And really, when it's half the price of Hydropel, why would I complain. Thanks for the help, guys.

    Next time around, I might try SportSlick.

    The Sportslick works great and is cheaper. They claim it also cures jock itch and athlete's feet as it contains an anti bacterial anti fungus formula. It's why I went with it. I've been totally blister/itch free since using it. I highly recommend it.
