|The Red Writer at Eugene T. Mahoney State Park|
Hot, hot, and hotter, sprinkled with momentary lapses of slightly cooler air, followed by blast-furnaces doses of more temperature spikes.
But when we got out of the Toyota Tundra at North Platte, we had something else to contend with: Humidity.
It was like walking into a sauna - a really hot one.
Today we are set up in a nice shady spot at this state park and plan a three-day stay. Or longer. The air conditioner is doing yeoman service. And unlike last night in North Platte, there is a nice breeze - even if warm.
I visited this state park two years ago when I was driving my little red Nissan truck from NY to California.
It's just as fabulous as I remember it. Hiking trails, small lakes, the Platte River, a fabulous aerospace museum within walking distance and a very neat town just four miles away
Now if I could just breathe a little easier. Humidity and I have never been close friends.
On our way into the lodge an hour ago (where this is being written), we got a close up look at the new Airstream trailer design. Several people who have come to take a peek at our T@B trailer have mentioned they were debating between getting a new Airstream like this and a T@B.
It's very space-age but I think I'll stick with The Red Writer.
