I'm very upset over two of my kids living there. I got one to leave and am working on the other. I'm not an overly religious man, but am convinced that all people living there are evil and that the Lord, in His infinite compassion, has sent them there to prepare them for an eternity in HELL!

Just to get back on topic, last October there was no overnight parking allowed at the Walmart on I-19 in Tucson. Now that I have that out of the way,
I'm visiting Tucson right this minute. We lived here for one year, and the monsoon season is different down here than up in Phoenix. The rain comes 4 or more days a week, and really cools things off for the evening. I sure did hate burning my hands on the key rim when starting the car everyday though, and you do need window covers down here.

I think the swamp coolers aren't very efficient for temps over 95, but 95 down here is very comfortable. We were in green valley looking for camping spots yesterday e temp was only 87!

True.... just the opposite of the dry cold in my home town in northern MN. Where you can freeze to what ever you touch.

I found that the newer Walmart's parking lots were designed with the lanes and traffic islands at the end each row so tight that I couldn't get into the parking area without running over the curb.
I stopped staying at Walmart and only stayed at truck stops.

If you want a real giggle, put up a sign saying "Please don't lick this pipe during a freeze" and then sit back and watch what happens.

BTW, the best material for a cooler is the Aspen fiber straw like media. This is from experience and a guy that builds coolers for a living. That blue or green over hyped stuff is just that.

The Walmarts near me have plenty of area to turn in. Curbs are not a problem.

I'll take the heat over cold any day. We were driving up north and stopped for the night at Wal Mart. When i got up in the morning, it was so cold, i had to open the refrigerator door to warm up the RV.

I find my gas furnace supplemented by my electric heater (powered by the generator) are more than ample to keep it a toasty 67 degrees inside when it gets down below 15 degrees outside.

I think if I was going to spend more time at those temps, I'd invest in one of those new vented cat heaters you can get.

Did you even think what you were saying before yoy mentioned a vented cat heater on this site.

I'm staring right now at my wife's cat. Hmmmmm. a couple holes, a little kerosene and I got me a vented cat heater.. It would probably get the wife heated up also..

I think you can buy those at Walmart, when you're parked there.

OK folks, I have deleted a heated name calling post and those which quoted it. Let's cool it a bit please.

Thanks for your help.
