I've wheeled through Death Valley at 114. Another 14 and I'd be toast.

Last I checked, they were looking at 10+ straight days at 120 and over. I like my steak medium-rare, not well done.

Re: Anyone up for a to trip to Furnace Creek(weather report)

Yikes. I was in 121 just outside Redding once; awful. And hit heat like this once when I made an ill-advised trip down from Canada via 95.

Hope the whole west doesn't burn up before I get out again this summer.
