Just Camping.

Decided to go camping at the last minute, hit the road yesterday late AM and actually found a decent shady campsite in a crowded CG. As long as I can get my daily 15 miles in on my bicycle I'll be a happy (thirsty) camper.

Gonna be darn hot this week, but the frig is working just fine



Bob

Nice spot Bob. We have been lucky here the past week with a dip in the jet stream right over the East Coast its been cool. Even a few nights in the upper 50`s! Needed a jacket on the boat at 5AM. Highs in the 80`s. But by weeks end the heat shifts East with upper 90`s forecast. Also a tropical storm lurking offshore. 15 miles on the bike in that heat? You gotta be in great shape.

Great looking site. We're in the heat right now and it ain't pretty. Your fridge is going to get a workout.

Lee,

Here in Michigan we have been hitting 90 degrees (and higher) temps for over a week, and they say this will continue through this week with a cool down into the 80's by the weekend.

Yep, did another 12 miles this morning, but went through two bottles of water in the process. I can manage temps in the 80's when cycling, but I don't enjoy it when it gets into the 90's!

Bob
