Temperature at home has been triple digits for about two weeks. One more week to go.

In all of the camping I have done since 1953 I have never found it to be too hot above 6,000 feet.

So far I have never found a camping spot above 8500 feet, but I am sure there are some out there.

I have an advantage over many people. I am at 1500 feet, in the foothills of the Sierras, 30 miles from Yosemite.

I have a lot in an RV park that I own in the UP of MI. I find the summer weather very nice there.

I second west coast of Michigan. And, if the air temp isn't cool enough for you, take a dip in the water. If that doesn't cool you off, you are just messed up. I can usually only get in up to mid-calf. Not to mention, it is a beautiful area with lots of fun small towns for shopping, eating, exploring.

X3 for the Oregon Coast. Heaven on earth. I live in the Okanagan Valley, here in BC. We are the go-to summer vacation spot for the majority of Western Canada. The temps here have rarely dipped below 90* for the past few weeks, and daytime temps easily run above 100* right now. Temperatures that are the norm for August have been around since the beginning of June in these parts. The fires have been so bad this year (already) that we feel like we are living in a smoky oven.

But I digress, we are less than 30 days away from departing to the Oregon coast for two weeks of reprieve from the blasting heat. I can't wait. I love the Oregon coast. I dream of it, like I'm sure most folks that vacation here dream of soaking in Okanagan Lake for their two weeks of holidays.

So yes, Oregon Coast it is. People friendly, dog friendly (Dog - Mecca to be specific). A very live and let live type of attitude seems to prevail on the coast. All that and the worlds best clam chowder from The Sea Hag awaits.
