This is the campground road that separates the boondocking area where I'm at on the left from the full hookup area on the right.
I think this has been the hottest day yet that I've spent in the Arctic Fox without air conditioning. And what made it almost unbearable is it was pretty windy so I thought it not wise to put my awning out which meant all morning the door side of the Arctic Fox was fully exposed to the sun and heated up accordingly. That gave me a lot more heating than the Arctic Fox normally gets with the awning out which made for a pretty miserable day, and made me think seriously about spending the day in the air-conditioned horse barns.
Thinking back on it the hottest day I've ever spent in an RV was maybe 20 years ago when I was camped on my property in Tombstone Arizona on a day in September, and I'll never forget it because it happened to be my birthday.
I was in my Hallmark pop-up slide-in truck camper which didn't even have an air conditioner, and I remember the inside thermometer showing 111° while I was laying on the sofa, and laying on the sofa at those temperatures is just about all you can do. And let me remind you that September is the monsoon season in Arizona so the humidity was also really high.... That used to sound like a pretty terrible time to me but since the Bat flu came along I guess those are what I would call the "good old days" because I consider any day before the Bat flu as a "good old day".
Between the heat and today's windy conditions I suspended all of my outdoor activities. Back a long, long, time ago in the pre-Bat flu days, on a day like this I might go to my local Walmart and hang around in the air-conditioned store for a while, doing a little shopping and getting some exercise pushing a cart around. But now "hanging around" in a store is definitely not wise and may even be verboten.
I need to make a decision whether to re-up or not tomorrow and I still don't know if I should leave or not. If I do re-up I'm definitely moving over to the full hookup area of the RV Park. I don't like to give up and admit defeat but I apparently can't deal with the heat the way I could when I was younger so it looks like the government is right..... I'm elderly.

Have you ever tried to live in your RV with no air conditioning and the temperature in your living room is 102° ? ...... I have, so I guess that makes everyone who answered no a whole lot smarter than me.
