    No big deal

    I survived last year; this year will be no problem. Those Coleman tent ceiling fans are the way to go. My 4 D cell batteries lasted all week.

    Oh yeah....just got home from Bass Pro Shop after picking up my D-cell Coleman fan. I tried it out and am impressed with the output. As long as it's within arms reach it'll provide a gentle breeze. This will make a big difference if nights are warm.

    Switch to MESH! Literally, night and day difference. You'll thank me.

    So far it looks to be 10 degrees cooler during the day and 15-20 degrees cooler for the low. Not to mention that the humidity probably won't be as bad. So far I would say the outlook looks good.

    I went riding around Missouri today. The weather broke and was cooler with thunderstorms. It got to 92 but must of the day it was in the low 80's.

    The worst of our heat broke. The best way to put in your tent pegs is with a drill. And carbide bit. BUT, anther way is get some ice, put a fist sized chunk of ice where the peg goes, after it melts the ground will be soft. Nice gradual release of the water. I think we get free ice.

    There is a chance of rain, it is so dry it will take over an inch just to fill the cracks in the ground.

    Night temps have been wonderful though, so come on down.

    The humid nights in Bloomsburg are what made that one tough. Enough refreshments during the day make the afternoon heat bearable. But hot and humid at night is no fun.

    Saturday looks like a scorcher (98*), so would a day trip to the Ozarks be a good idea?

    There are lots of places to get wet in the Ozarks.

    Absolutely - switch to mesh. Makes a huge difference in air flow as you ride.

    Just looked at NOAA Weather - Rally week in Sedalia has mid to high 90's predicted for most days.

    Good news is: plenty of air-conditioned buildings, water and ice, so see you there.

    The arkansas ozarks is having a severe drought.

    see map

    Many of the nice streams and creeks I used to dip in are very low and gross. Hotter than hell down there too.

    Truman lake is close.

    Yes, I live in joplin and I actually tripped over a crack in the ground, yet we are only at yellow. You folks are RED, dark red in places. It is sad looking down there.

    The mouth of the spring stream at Bennett Springs State Park where it dumps into the Niangua River could make you scream like a girl if you jumped into it.

    Conditions : Bennett Spring State Park: 57 degrees, falling, clear; the spring level is low and clear;
