Too hot in Texas

Stuck at home in Texas, too hot to camp any where in Texas. Gas too high to leave the state.😂

Will be glad when the heat breaks. Looking at 100+ temps for the weekend. We've had something like 27 days this year with temps over 100. And the drought continues. Ugh.

You said a mouthful there! We have adjusted our getaway to the Hill Country by a week. Hope to head down from DFW on 9/21 now. The extended forecast for Kerrville looks like highs will move down into the 80's by then. We will divide our time between Lake LBJ in Marble Falls and the Guadalupe River in Kerrville. That assumes the Forecast holds over the next few days. Need to make reservations soon - but if the degrees go up - we may just bite the bullet and head to New Mexico.

We are hoping for less time driving and more time chilling out. I really need this vacation and don't want to spend time in sweltering heat. Should work out but I've seen it freeIng cold, hotter than heck, and just right as late as Halloween and Christmas in north Texas over the years. Just wait. It'll change.

In the early 80's my dad and I had bass boats. One year we both got snowmobile suits for winter fishing. Headed to Monticello the day after Christmas - never needed them. Shorts - T-shirts and sunburn. Gotta love it.

Hope you are right and everyone stays home so we can get outta town with just a bit of traffic this afternoon

Too hot to load up though !!! truck temp said 103 late yesterday and our storage site faces west so the 35 foot cover only helps a bit

but we do have 20 amp service so I can run one ac while loading up !!! Whew !

My MH stored at my sister's place outside of Gatesville. Going there tomorrow to get ready for trip to the Ozarks of northern Arkansas starting Sept 20th. Need to get tranny fluid flushed, steer tires balanced, and dash air recharged with R12. Only going a couple of weeks, wife still works.

Hoping it will be cool enough for camping there. I like heat better than cold, but it has been another long, hot summer.

Dang! We had to turn the AC on for a few days as the temperatures got up to around 80 degrees here in the Northern Part of Camp Pendleton. A ride down to the ocean drops it to around 70-72 and at night it's down in the mid to high 60's.

Heading back the middle of Sept. so ya'll move on out of Texas so the "hot air" will follow.

I would rather pay for the gas and get away from the heat. We headed for Oregon this year. Found a great place to spend the summer in Bend Or. Private RV slot. It is my secret. There are a lot of great state parks here to camp in. Temps in the 50's at night and 70 to 80's during the day. In addition we have found a piece of property near Prineville Reservoir that we may buy as a summer place. Use the MH to head south during the winter months. Be getting rid of the sticks and bricks and come back for the winter. I will always be a Texan.

It looks to be buttered! Not sure they will eat it but could add a little fat content if they did. Could change great grand pappys secret sausage recipe.

Wow! I'll say! It's 6 p.m. here at Camp Pendleton, CA and the temperature is 78.1 degrees outside and the humidity, wow, must be 40 percent. The house AC has been on all day. Every once in a while it starts up and runs.

Keeping in context. I hope a fuse doesn't blow.
