2 Hot 2 Camp

Is anyone camping in this hot weather? What are you doing to keep cool, and where are you going? The A frame just sits in our drive way, and we don't feel like going anywhere.

Same boat here. Between work and the heat we've been letting the AFrame hang out in the garage.

We also have a pool, and it's been getting a workout.

Anytime is camping time around our house. Went to the Grand Canyon in June and it was Hot Hot Hot.
Right now were waiting till the first week of August to go camping, people from work on vacation and lots of overtime.
We keep cool by staying in the shade whenever possible, drink lots of water and just have a good time.
We are going camping on our 39th Wedding Anniversary so we will enjoy each others company and a big steak on the grill and of course, a few cold ones to wash it all down.

Spent two days in San Antonio, visited Fredricksburg, C.W. Nimitz museum. Overnight stop in Beaumont, going on to Gulfport/Bay St Louis to play golf, with final destination Pensacola/Destin. Air in the trailer works fine for dinner and sleeping, rest of the time out exploring.

We just went camping in Michigan at my brothers property. It was so hot and humid, the dogs didn't enjoy it at all. The yamaha 2000 generator that I borrowed from my father couldn't run the AC

But I will be taking a friend to the GPAA gold claim in Buena Vista Colorado next month, it should be comfortable next to the Arkansas river at 9000 ft elevation!

We're going to a state park with a nice pool.
Probably Kentucky Horse Park. The have some shaded sites and a good pool.
They also have a paved bicycle path thru the countryside into Lexington.
We bike ride early in the day and spend the afternoon at the pool.
Then back to our place for frozen margaritas.

I would not go in this weather without AC!!!

We're heading out again to a campground on the shores of Green Bay. AC and a shaded spot are a must, even still.

I do like the frozen margarita idea.

Every weekend we've been camping, but we camp next to the lake where our boat is.
The water cools us off it is a little more manageable.
