hottubkid,

Got up to 85.1 in town for a couple hours across Lake Michigan about 150 miles from you (West Michigan on the Lakeshore). Actually, straight across from Milwaukee. Spent much of today in our boat on the big lake and didn't see 80 degrees but it did get close. Such torture!

Haven't turned on our home A/C in 7 years now as it' isn't needed because there's always a cooling breeze coming off the lake.

You all should head to the OR or WA coasts where it rarely gets above 70 in the summer. Right now it is high noon completely sunny and 66 degrees on my temp gauge sitting in the shade.

Just make sure to pack warm cloths and bring your rain gear.


Headed that way in 3 weeks.

We go on 3-day camping/fishing excursions in 95 to 100 degree days. Our motorhome is a GREAT fishcamp in that it has two 15000 btu air conditioners which keep it cool. We go out on the lake early, for about 3 hours, and come back to a comfortable place where we can do indoor activity. Late in the day, we go fishing again.

When it is too hot to be comfortable outside. That can vary depending on the wind, humidity, amount of shade, etc. We don't use the MH much in the summer because of that and the number of people at most locations. But we are fortunate to have a climate that allows us to get out the rest of the year.

Would love to spend some time in Texas, just not in the summer.

We camped last weekend. It was just a bit under 100. (That's a cold front.) We'd only been able to camp once this spring, due to my husband traveling a lot for work and me being excessively pregnant, so we decided that going out when it was really hot and we had a new 5 week old was perfect.

Actually, we had a family wedding we needed to attend that was about 1.5 hours from our house. We decided we might as well camp close to the wedding and make a weekend out of it. It was really fine. Our campsite had a little bit of shade, and that helped. The travel trailer (just one AC) stayed comfortable except for when the door was opened for too long. Of course, with 5 children, the trailer did get warm several times, but it cooled off relatively quickly. We did some outside activities in the morning and swam in the evenings. In the middle of the day, we napped and went out shopping. I think it probably is best to go somewhere that has indoor stuff you'd like to do. And picking a campsite with trees will help a lot.
