Hot..Hot..Hot.. Really it is 99* Now!!

AirstreamHobo Travels...Madison, WI. #12

June 22,Monday, Today we wake up to HEAT wave, it is supposed to be hot all week. We went over to Wal-Mart to check about an oil change, they could do it right away. 14 quarts is alot of oil!!! They did a good job checking all over the Van. Carol worked the Message Center from 1-4 pm...in the Air Conditioning...YEAH!!!

We made steaks on the grill for supper.After eating we decided to go for a drive to a little village of swiss buildings. I headed for New Clares, way out in the farming area. We passed very large farms with lots of corn fields. We arrived in the village and saw a bunch of tractors at a swiss motel, so I stopped. Here we saw them stopping for the night, There was 36 "old Tractors" on a caravan of a Tractor Cruise across USA. They were traveling for a 4-5 days cruise. http://www.tractorcruiseusa.com/stateride.htm Read about it here. It was interesting to see all the old tractors...John Deere, Farmall, Moline, Ford...etc. See my pictures. Then we drove around the town seeing COWS all painted up(pictures too). Then back to Madison ...all back roads...rolling up and down hills past beautiful farms, the sunset was awesome as always. We arrived home at 9pm to a hot night. We put all the fans in the bedroom to keep us cool tonight...it worked...I slept great!!

June 23, Tuesday, HOT...HOT...at 11 am it is already 95* here, the news tells everyone to stay indoors between 1-7pm to prevent heat problems. We did laundry today, then went to Subway for a sub for lunch just to stay cool. Then back to the Airstream unload laundry then off to the Expedition Center to stay indoors with the air condition. My thermometer at the airstream said 121* outside and 96* inside.. Tonight we "WILL" go out for dinner!!!

Rally Notes... Over 400 Airstreams are here. The Generators are working overtime to run...some have blown fuses...and are repaired as soon as possible..People are hot here and most are hanging out in the buildings to stay COOL!!! So if you are on your way...be prepared for a VERY HOT WEEK!!! That is the weather forcast for Madison...

God Bless.... AirstreamHobo & Carol

  1. Wow, what weather. I thought cool and comfy would rule in Wisconsin. Guess it's not just the south that is overheated!
