1st Day of AC


Temps have been in the 80s for the last week. We’ve been relying on lake breezes to keep the house cool, but no breeze today.

So . . . we turned on the house air conditioning. Both our dogs love it — they lay on the AC floor vents.

For Wisconsinites think of it this way . . . about the time you turn off your heat, we turn on the AC.

Here’s our forecast for the week:




BISHOP, CA FORECAST (We’ll be here on Saturday) . . .

    Looks like your next location is about 10 degrees cooler.. that sounds nice.

    We’ve been in the 50’s and flirting with low 60’s. Everyone is ecstatic. Been outside everyday lapping up the sun and listening to the bird population explode.. robins, redwing blackbirds, sandhill cranes.. LOVE IT!

    Well that’s a good idea. Get out of town when it gets too hot. Although 82 doesn’t sound too bad. I guess you’ll be heading out to Bishop, Ca soon. What are the temps like there, April thru Oct.?

    • Bishop does get hot in the summer — 90s – 100s from June through September, but nothing like AZ.

      It helps that Bishop is at about 4100 feet elevation. Should be a lot less hot (and humid) than AZ in summer.

      Before we got the job in Bishop, we were going to spend the summer at Hualapai Mountain Park which is even cooler at 6500 feet.

    I’m learning a lot from your experience. I copied the study that you posted last year that provides a ton of statistics on RV owners and trends. Just kind of skimmed it for now but will definitely read through the whole thing. Deb and I did attend that RV show at State Fair Park. We’re not ready to actually purchase an RV at this point for several reasons, the main two being that Deb isn’t retired yet and Rose is still in High School (Jr Yr). But in a year and a half or more we might get serious. I see that you own a class A; we’re leaning more towards a class C–it’s the size we rented for the ND/SD trip last summer. One thing’s for sure– RVing is definitely a fun way to travel.

      We chose the class A because we can keep the dogs with us while driving and we can tow a car, which makes the exploring more convenient once we set up the RV at the campsite. Everyone has a different preference. There are some great new Class C’s and van types on the market now. Fun to hear from you. I have trouble believing that Rose is in high school already!

    Hi, Jan. Good to hear from you too. Deb and I are still at the very early stages of choosing anything. Everything depends on when she decides to retire. We will probably rent something again this summer. But the size and the cost of the class A’s seems a bit daunting… But who knows? I’m going to check out the RV forums that Tom recommended and we’ll continue to do some research. And Tom’s blog is really quite helpful–I get a good sense of what life is like for the two of you. And yes, Rose is in high school. Holly cow! time flies. She’s an excellent student and wants to be a medical doctor–she ‘s been thinking of that since at least 8th grade. We’re really proud of her… I’ll keep an eye on your movements–it’s really a lot of fun.
