OMG!! Where is it Actually COOL? - cherterr - 09-14-2019

MOD PLEASE DELETE. IGNORE Post...
EDIT: Looked at weather again... I think it'll be okay.. MOD PLEASE DELETE. I couldn't figure out how to . (Thanks)

So I left South freaking, melting hot/humid Texas and figured I'd go NORTH to ND or something.. now it looks like it's gonna be in the high 80s all week there.  I WAS gonna try to sleep in the van.  I need somewhere comfy all day.

Answer quickly... I'm in So. OK. at a hotel.. lol  Trying to make my game plan for which way to go in the morning.

(WITH THREE DOGS..Please help keep me from just tucking my tail and going back home!!) lol
THANKS!

Cher, obviously you did a bad job trying to erase your post. Not happening. The best you can do around here is delete all of the words in the post and then either enter 3 dots "...", or just say "Never mind".

For reference, this time of the year you don't go north to get cool, except maybe at the North Pole, you go "high". If you had gone into the mountains of Colorado, you'd be in 4 happy puppies now. Eg, 10,000' near Leadville, sit in the tree shade.

In the summer, cool temps are determined mainly by altitude, not latitude. For example, summer temps can be blazing hot in eastern Montana, but in the Rocky Mountains of western Montana it is mostly cool, and you can even find patches of snow left over on the higher elevations.

Instead of traveling north from Texas to find cool weather, you could have traveled east to Cloudcroft in the Lincoln National Forest of New Mexico (elevation about 9,000 ft.) The high temps in Cloudcroft for the next 10 days will be in the 60s and 70s.

Mountains of Northern New Mexico are wonderful

Yep...NM it Is.... Lol. I was just having a long day traveling trauma moment. SmileSmile

I've only been Studying this for 5 freakin' years. Please forgive my momentary lack of sound thought. Smile and thanks for the tips.

I'm startin near Taos and if that freezes me outta my goose down...then I'll head down toward Santa Fe.

( I was just trying to avoid the West at this point in time because I've been back and forth so many times. However none of them were van dwelling so it's all new. And then of course there's the whole three dogs thing now.
ROFLMAO. Had to go buy a ball and Chick Filet!! We're all sane and happy now.)

This is gonna be a ' trip '!
(I was trying to avoid the whole west Tx thing..lol)

I had to find a place not freezing this week. Literally freezing. First snow happened wednesday and all the mountain peaks are white now 1/3 way down. Weve swung into a hot as hell when sun up and moment it goes down drops into 40's in an hour or 2.

Michigan is quite pleasant at the moment.

cherterr - I left your first post as you wrote it. We've all been there - too hot and tired to think straight. You did good, got yourself and your dogs to a hotel to cool down and figured out what to do next. Taos and Santa Fe should be much cooler. :-)
