Holy Heat Wave

Where you all goin to beat the heat this weekend?

Was thinking the Plaine Rally, but egads, 102 on Saturday, and 5 hot hours to get there...pass. Fr. Rock....nope. Hell, even Government Camp is forecast to be 90 on Saturday. Toying with pointing the BMW west to the Coastal Air Conditioner.

Any recommendations for extra cool camping spots on the North coast?

Canoeing at Jellystone, it's only supposed to be 80 degrees out there.

Of course, there's 900 miles of Mordor between here and there, so Our Lady of Blessed Air Conditioning Don't Fail Me Now!

Long sleeves are probably required, so don't be that guy that only has a winter coat and has to wear it in 1000°

I'm thinking the coast also, with about half of the state of Oregon.

Sometimes we get the inversion when the coast will be socked in, colder than winter.

Then you have to go inland 'bout 5-10 miles to warm up.

Glad I got my 800 mile ride about in central / eastern Oregon last weekend. Super weather.

Sweethome, Smith Rocks, Post-Paulina Road, John Day, Mitchel, Prineville, Bowman Dam, Bend, Century Drive, Oakridge, Offthider, Cooger Dam, Shedd / Home.

113 here on Sunday brother! After MAYBE a quick ride very early morning, I'm going to be taking trips from the backyard pool to the air conditioned house to get the tequila from the freezer.

Hey, looky there, I'm not the only one dancing with unicorns. Have a good time. As we know it's a fun place to hang out.


Me, I think I'm headed for N. Idaho and riding Moon Pass between Wallace and Avery. Thinking about camping Fri. and Sat. It should be great camping along the river.

Hey Scott!

Low 70s every friggin day here lately. Couldn't be more perfect. It'll start raining eventually but that'll be good. The whole state is going up in flames right now.
