Summer in the South.

We were in MI and IN until wife and I both got Pneumonia in Elkhart. I'm sure it's somehow connected to Covid.
Came home to N TX to recoup.
Left again staying in TX, closer to home. 1 day away just in case we get sick again.
It's not been as hot as I remember. West TX is drier. Hottest so far mid 90's. Several days low 80's.
But the best part is No Crowds, state parks near empty. No weekender parties, less dogs barking. QUIET.
We go out in the AM when it in high 70's, return after lunch.
Second time doing this. Last time in Indio CA in Aug, mid 110's for family.

I'd highly recommend you get a Covid test. Even if you're not real sick you are passing it around.

I was tested for covid when admitted to the hospital for dehydration. Negative.
But our sicknesses are somehow related to covid. I believe our isolation for over a year weakened our immune system. We've both have had every flu, pneumonia and covid shot.

It's what I love about camping locally. We live SW of Austin in the town of Dripping Springs. I find the state parks up in the panhandle or the NE portion of the state have more availability compared with the parks closer to us. West Texas is wide-open and the gulf is a little humid for our tastes. The dead of summer can be problematic if your AC isn't powerful enough for your motorhome. Camping in the fall and spring are THE BEST. The kids are back in school and the crowds thin out, and the weather is at its finest except when you encounter the thunderstorms. They can be fun. Be careful during tornado season though.

Texas has 4 distinct ecological environments: desert/arid west, grass plains of the north, pine forests in the east, and beach/marshland in the south. Take your pick or travel between them.
