All you have to do is take your Escape up to Flagstaff. That should be good.

It is never that hot in New Mexico. You're in the mountains and can go higher. And it's a fantastic place to be.

107- 110 seemed pretty hot to me that summer.

I would say that that is unusual for Albuquerque. Albuquerque should be pretty good almost all of any summer compared to any southern area around in the adjacent states. I think you must have been in record heat?! You should have gone to Myron's. He's at 7000' and not far.

Who knows, maybe my brother in law had a bad thermometer! But I know when we were taking off in the plane to go home, I thought we were going to run out of runway before that plane fought its way off the ground in that thin hot air!

Not to one-up, but.... My wife and I were flying out of Colorado Springs one unusually warm summer day. The pilot came on the cabin speakers and said something to the effect (I'm not lying!), "We're at full capacity and maximum weight today, and we don't have the cool dense air or head wind coming out of the west that usually help give us lift for takeoff. We've contacted the Boeing engineers, and they think we can still get off the ground, so we're going to go give it a try." Again, I kid you not! Everyone on the plane was looking around at each other saying, "Give it a try??" The pilot used every inch of the runway, and I swear we were seeing grass out the window before we finally lifted off, but we made it.

That's Density Altitude Dale. Always a factor where it's dry and hot. Right now the problem in Colorado Springs (I flew in last night) isn't the density altitude, but the WIND. Power lines down all over, trucks overturned all over, fences down, roofs ripped off, trees broken, you name it. Incredibly windy today with sustained winds around 55-60 mph, and gusts earlier today over 90.

It sure melted the snow fast.
