Get a beadrider. Sheepskin doesn't work well in the heat and humidity.
I was at Sedalia too and took a detour to Denver after the rally before coming home. Crossed Kansas twice in three days wearing my LDComfort shorts and a pair of FirstGear solid pants with a beadrider on my seat. Didn't have any problems. The temps were consistently above 104.

Thank goodness we carry diaper rash cream when we travel! I've washed my riding pants, my LD shorts and my sheepskin, and we head out again next week for a week long trip to the southern US. I hope washing everything has been the answer, and not to have a repeat of the monkey butt...
On the PLUS side, I picked up one of the ladies' combo tops, and I can honestly say I've never worn anything more comfortable. As a 'full figured' gal, I was concerned about coverage, but I needn't have been. I told my hubby this top was so comfy I never wanted to take it off!
