... an hour but gave us enough wood for 2. I never thought we'd last that long but we did. Deanne liked looking at the steam come off my body when in the cooling room. I haven't been this hot since I was in a Turkish Hamam and I paid a guy to beat me up (i.e. give me a traditional massage.) I felt like a stuck pig after that one, but I liked it.
