We just got back from Johnson's Shut-ins State Park near the Mark Twain National forest in South eastern Mo and had a great time. The Black River made the heat bearable. We are headed to Cuivre River State Park , near Troy, MO in a couple of weeks. The open burn ban is a dissappointment to the kids but totally understandable under the current conditions. We still roasted marshmallows over the gas grill.

Average high in Phoenix is 106 and that is average. We are heading to Ketchum Idaho and then Seattle WA for a month to visit our sons. Any ideas how to move RV from back yard, through the alley behind our house, then to our drive way without taking 2 cold showers after the adventure?

Just got back from our first trip, and got to 100 yesterday here in central texas. AC was working hard all day, but it was comfortable in the TT. But here in central texas, if I waited until it cooled off, we would only be able to camp 2 months out of the year .

Here in Luray, VA, we have a pretty famous underground cavern that stays 56 degrees year round. And the owners allow residents of Page County to come in anytime the caverns are open and enjoy Nature's A/C free of charge. That's how we stay cool.

Spent some time this week camping at Lakeside State Park in western NY, 93 when we set up Monday afternoon with high gusting winds, haven't had significant rain in weeks. But the A/C cooled it off nice and we slept in comfort, Monday night. Tuesday not as bad, and tonight wife and kids are still there, but now in a potential severe weather area, storms moving thru the area tonight into early am. I'll check on them in the am to make sure all fared ok.

We just purchased our first "new to us" TT last week and took it out this past week-end. It was steamy for sure, but we had a good time and the A/C about froze me out. But going the TT way was going to be the only way that I could get my wife to start camping again. Especially in GA.

Come on up here, it was just over 20 degrees Celsius yesterday and is forecast to be about the same today. It was really hot during the Calgary Stampede but my relatives visiting from New Zealand loved it and now they are complaining how cold it is back home, then again it is their winter.
