Who's Braving The Heat?

Not Me! It's triple digits up here in Northern Missouri. I really don't want to put the extra strain on my truck and TT A/C. Not to mention burn bans throughout the state so no campfire. C-mon Mother Nature, give us a break, PLEASE!

The day we pulled into camp last week, it reached 113degrees (SoCal). It only hit 95 today. Heat sure makes the pool feel good

Heading home tomorrow and will be back to the cooler marine layer climate

Camped the past two weeks in the hot, humid lake region of Minnesota. Not overly comfortable outside, but the Jayco sure was NICE.

I'm still braving it (in Missouri as well), but ours in perm parked so all I have to do is drive there, unlock and kick the AC on. Both AC's run 24/7 and it's usually close to midnight before I see inside temps below 80*. But it's brand new and I'm gonna use it..

We stay in Tucson June, July, August, and start our camping in Sept thru May. Just to darn hot and monsoon start up in July and it could get pretty nasty.

It was 119 the day we left Boulder City Nevada. Both nights it barely dropped below 100F and was maybe 95 first thing the next morning. Two mornings in Yellowstone we saw 35F and yet two weeks - BAM back in the heat again. Thank god for A/C. After almost five straight weeks - time to head home.

We're heading out today for a long weekend in the Smokies. High temps in the high 80's, maybe low 90's, which is a break from the heat here. Not only will the pool feel good, but so will tubing in the mountain river - that water stays cool year round.
I usually run 7-10 miles in the mornings when camping, will have to leave earlier than usual .

I full time so I'm right in the middle of it, but in all fairness, I'm hosting on the gulf coast at a beach park so it rarely gets over high 80's. The the humidity is usually 100%. Both a/c's work well and cycle on/off most all day except in the absolute heat of the day. It is always comfortable inside however.
