Which probably means that you will have a hot dry summer.

It usually is dry. Hot?? Well usually it's in the high 80's to low 90's for most of the summer; however, we usually also have about two weeks of over 100 weather 102-103'ish. Last year we had some record highs for here so hopefully we don't this year.

I was out in Colorado a couple of years ago.   It was like 102-103 some of the days, but yet it didn't feel like that.    The thing is even with all that heat the humidity was only like 12%, so it really didn't feel hot.

Now where I'm from most summers it's usually upper 80's to lower 90's, but the humidity is anywhere from 50% to 80 something % which makes it feel really super hot.   :)

Yeah the key here is the dry heat. It really makes the difference in the heat and the cold. I've lived in Florida where humidity is much higher and been miserable on days that would be considered comfortable here in Nevada. Our humidity is a little lower than what you would find in most of Colorado.

I'm ready whenever you are Jason.   Come over and we will try to find one of the local caches around here.

He doesn't know it yet, but I'm going to introduce my brother to geocaching Sunday!!  The reason he doesn't know it is because he doesn't know I have a plane ticket to fly out Friday to surprise him for his 40th birthday!  I'm taking him geocaching Sunday morning while my mom and his girlfriend get his suprise party set up.

My brother has figured out that he now loves geocaching!!  We found 6 in one morning.  I only stood up under one concrete statue :banghead: so I only knocked myself half silly.  I'm going to do some more caches Thursday on my way back to Portland to fly out Friday.  I'm either doing a bunch of small easy ones or one big one.  I'm leaning toward hiking to the top of Multnomah Falls, which is about 3 miles round trip.  Half that way is nearly straight up.  Good place to drop some travel bugs.  I also found a really cool Portland geocoin that is marked on it that it can be kept!  So far I've dropped off two of the travel bugs I brought from Florida and don't have any to take back.  Hopefully I'll find some, though.
