I overnighted one summer day 10 feet from a big midwestern cornfield. Didn't dare go out of the trailer without great fear of attack from about a trillion plus mosquitos.

Hi: MyronL... Here on the north shore you would be attacked by our infamous "Sap beetles" aka "Beer bugs". They don't bite but they sure drink a lot!!! Alf

In Palm Desert for next 6 days. We have a time share and grandkids require a summer visit. 118* yesterday upon arrival. Forecast for another hot one today. Lot's of pool time today. Iowa Dave should get rich on his beer stock and Alf's beer bugs should be diverted.......

Camped in Kansas last night. Still 91 degrees at midnight. Headed for eastern CO tonight and then Durango on Sunday. Jake looked at me and seemed to say Dave, I don't think we're in Iowa anymore.

You guys in the heat stay safe and hydrated. It's miserable when it doesn't even cool down at night ....

It was 106 in Hays KS this afternoon. Tonight about 85 with low humidity in SE Colorado, Very comfortable. I can hear thunder and the sky is pretty dark so it's
Due to cool off shortly. We are at John Martin Reservoir. Campground is nice. There's a feedlot a few miles away with about 10,000 cows. Jakes nose is quivering pretty good, I hope he doesn't put a rod through the side of the block.
