    When I lived there, the temperature did not go below 90 degrees at night for a couple months!

    Heck, it was 100 here today, which is fairly common for this time of year.

    It was clear that day and they said we were lucky because it was getting cooler compared to the days before. Thanks for the wind farm recommendation and all the rest. I save them on my travel list and intend to visit them when I have more time and heading east again.

    Well, good for you. You did find something. I went through there yesterday, didn't see a thing.

    It took a lot of convincing just to get out of the air condition truck.

    You could take a quick run through Joshua Tree via the southern gate. Or you could go check out all the cool aircraft junkyards in southern Arizona. But you'd better get a very early start.

    If the temp was only 103, you got off fairly easy.

    ...but it's a dry heat

    After 90 I can't tell the difference - heat is my kryptonite . All I remember that anything metal was too hot to touch after a couple of minutes.

    LOL - Unfortunately, the 'honey do' list comes first.

    Thanks for all your help Mike!

    As everyone says, that trip isn't a casual stroll. I made it a few times when I was moving from San Clemente to Phoenix. It's farther than it looks on a map, and it's brutal country. And a large swath of it is reservation land that you cannot really go on. But there are a few places you can explore.

    If you can make it a multi-day trip you'll do far better.

    And insert the word "Febuary" somewhere in that sentence.
