Les and I know of a great place to visit that will afford you clear cool mountain air and cold cold water. Besides you could throw in a couple of mini "C's" to boot. We could also introduce you to clear mountain Kokanee "the one and only champaign of beers" that comes with high recommendations from the Creston Sasquatch crowd.

If we weren't slow rolling toward AZ for the winter that would be a perfect.

I have 95 degrees here with humidity making it feel like 105 and not a lot of breeze that's helpful...
So taday was the massive project of defrosting the freezer... and it's in the getting my kitchen floor a mess stage... wish I knew a quick easy way to do that... but so far, all I have ever seen was the slow messy way...

Since we are moaning or bragging about the weather where we are I'll mention that at 5 pm in Seattle it is mostly cloudy and 67 degrees. If you want cool summers without high altitude I recommend western Washington or western Oregon.

Have you tried putting towels in the bottom of the freezer to soak up the water and hitting the ice deposits with the hair dryer on high?

Today it was 107 here in Van Horn TX; yesterday 112......we are defiantly heading in the right direction - down.

To help survive the heat the grands and I made homemade French Vanilla ice cream, homemade hot fudge and strawberry sauce and even homemade brownies. They loved it! Click image for larger version

I thought that was the only way lol.

Speaking of turning the fridge off. The office called me at 5:45 pm to tell me the power would be off from 8 am to 5 pm tomorrow. They apologized for the late notice.

They're running new power lines in the back area. It's nice to see a place run like this. They mow weekly, clean out fire pits and do a job of it. They're putting $ into the place and have a lot to work with. Just wish they'd put in some shade trees back here.

It's funny to hear the PA system fire up on Saturday and Sunday. "Good Morning Campers". Followed by the National Anthem and announcements throughout the day. Unless we drive up front we don't even know if there are any campers here. Best of both worlds. They do need another pool. The one they have fills up quickly with happy families!

We are in Camp San Luis Obispo and it is 8:40 p.m. and the temperature is 58˚. Humidity is 73% but with the cool temperature who cares. High today when we arrived at about 2:30 p.m. was 70˚. It is going to be in the low 70's for the next 3 days then about 78 for two day - then we are moving so doesn't matter.

Since we arrived on the Gold Coast we have had wonderful weather. The last several weeks has been without air conditioning or heat. We escaped Texas to get away from the Summer weather and it is working.

See you soon Barb.

I ran across a 4 year old ponder. Ain't it nifty how RVMs have solid toleration? We adapt and improvise better than most!

Reading RV park reviews for Arizona:
There are those that report the park had everything they wanted and loved the place but will not go back, because:
- There were too many people riding bicycles making it difficult to drive our golf cart.
- It was dusty (uhhh, it's in the desert?).
- No shade (uhhh, it's in the desert?).
- There was no grass (uhhh, it's in the desert?).
- There wasn't a pond (uhhh, it's in the desert?).
- We had to drive to the clubhouse because it was about 500 feet away and our golf cart cost too much to charge up. (But gas is cheap?)
- They had no recycling bins.
-They charged extra for me to plug in my hybrid.
- The neighbors had grandchildren stay over on weekends.
- (My favorite) It was more than 3 miles from the Walmart

Whole chicken ready to cook - $8.00. Whole cooked chicken $4.00. Ponder that. Lol.

uhm. wow. I guess they wouldn't make it as a mutant. They seem mad to be missing all the luxuries of home. I bet even at home it's the same but with grass to mow, maybe a few more trees and and no pond. Guess the grandkids don't wanna come over either. Sucks for them not to be able to enjoy their time away.
