It's hot, almost unbearably so without a proper a/c, but tomorrow will be worse. This summer is already written for me as to what I do and where I'm going, but you can bet next year I am going to be in the mountains for every heat wave to hit the Sacramento area. C'mon Canada, send that jet stream back down this way!
I went over to Jeannie's this afternoon to plan the food for our upcoming trip, but we spent most of the time working on the Sunday NY Time Crossword puzzle. Keep my old brain cells sharp.
I got an email from Ara telling me that they went through both the Tetons and Yellowstone, and were able to camp in both places. They are having a great trip and seeing lots of new places. It will be fun to compare our travels when I see her the latter part of September, just before her 24th birthday.
I printed something off the internet explaining how to fold down the back seats of a Highlander so they lay flat. I haven't been able to do it, and neither could Ara. Today I asked Donald to try it and he said they don't go flat. That's a complete bummer to me because I wanted to be able to sleep comfortably in the cargo space in case of bad weather. If I'm near motels, of course, there is that option, but I hope to spend most of my trip as far away from interstates as possible and to get lost in a few National Forests and Parks. That means camping!
I'd better stop now because I'm so miserably hot! It's difficult to even think.
