We are the same way. Many years ago we learned that lesson well!! At least in the stick home I can clean out closets or get caught up on little things. Unless there is a break in the heat or we are at the lake with a shady campsite we don't make plans for July at all. August we will get out a little but will find shady campgrounds.
Just saw this morning that Missouri Conservation Dept placed a fire ban in all the state conservation areas for any type of woodfires. You can still use charcoal in a ring to cook with but that is it. Looks like the heat is here to stay for awile.
