Warm enough?

Turns out we went on our trip during the hottest month of the year.  Traditionally July is the hottest month but this year was a new record.  According to the Las Vegas Review-Journal "July's average temperature of 96.2 degrees (35.6C) was the highest of any month since record keeping began in 1937."  That average is both the high and the low so it didn't get that cool at night either.  We've been in the low 100's (38C) since we returned but nothing in the teens.

Speaking of our trip; we put 3,174 miles (5,100km) on the truck; towing about 2,500 (4,000km) and used almost exactly 300 gallons (1,135 liters) of diesel.  A long trip for under a month.  Here's a photo of the GPS when we were going up to see Mt. St. Helens.

Nothing like driving in a straight line!  Have a good one.
