The fact that a large part of the west is desert ought to be a clue that people were not meant to live there. As far back as I can remember it has always been hot and dry, and now it’s… hot and dry. Here in the south (Dixie) it’s hot and wet but we do have shade.

I'm not retired yet, but when I do retire and start RVing for months out of the year, I can guarantee you I won't be RVing in Arizona during summer months! Not when there are so many lovely, cooler boondock sites up north. Isn't that what the RV is for, anyway... so you can MOVE to a better climate? [emoticon]

Tell me which ones are cooler. Montana is hot and the Canadian border is still closed.

Guess what? It's hot here, too! Not so much this week but it looks like another heatwave is coming next week. With humidity.

Cute little park in Grand Marais Mi. Low cost but they Nic-O-Lock the showers as I recall. South shore of the big lake (Superior) generally a bit cooler but .. alas. August can still get warm.

Get the generator fixed is my suggestion.

Well, as I said, I couldn't get an appt. until next month but, yes, that's the plan. Just curious as to how other campers here in the West were doing with the heat.

Here in SW MN one of the problems with the heat,, and the drought, is that the lakes are turning green and smelly early.

We had very little snow last winter, and not much rain so far this year.

Around here are lakes are all polluted by agriculture runoff. When you get a hot dry year like this they all turn to **** quickly.

I have reservations on a lake for the 4th. After that I will probably stick to campgrounds that are on streams and not on lakes. The lakes are going to be full of Blue-Green Algae and it is toxic.

You beat me to it. Michigan's Upper Peninsula will be cooler. Lake Superior is a natural refrigerator this time of year.

For that matter, the Superior shore in Minnesota can be cooler, too. I just checked the 10-day forecast for the 'other' Grand Marais (in Minnesota) and they're expecting highs in the mid 60s throughout!

For that matter, here in Tulsa we just had a 75 degree day followed by an 85 degree day (it felt glorious). Supposed to be back in the mid 90s for 2-3 days now, but then back to the mid 80s for a bit afterward. Not too hard to take. I got out the bucket and hose yesterday and gave the vinyl siding a bath.

I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I needed to be Douglas Adams

RV-less for now but our spirits are still on the open road.
