Desert heat

Posted: 08:19 AM ET

Wednesday was quite the full day for us, as we blogged, broadcasted and outfitted our 1978 Scout while trekking through the desert heat of California and Nevada. (See our "vlog" video blog about it here.)

nevada.motel

Yes we're staying in a hotel. It's mercifully close to where our live shot is on Thursday.

In the morning, we drilled holes in the Scout to mount solar panels that will power our gadgets.

Then after lunch (see blog entry below), we picked up a spare tire (don't tell my mom we drove 500 miles without one!) and headed out toward Vegas.

We made it to Barstow, California, before the heat got to us, the Scout and our batteries. My ever-drained, precious iPhone just wouldn't charge.

We took the opportunity to cool the truck off by parking in a lonely spot of shade outside a True Value home center. Several friendly staffers informed us that it was 104 degrees Fahrenheit and that we should be driving at night, when tempuratures are cooler.

After getting the solar panels installed we headed out on the road again. The Scout's temperature gauge occasionally climbed to previously unseen heights. We muddled through and finally arrived at our motel - which is mercifully only minutes away from Hoover Dam.

See ya at the dam!

– Cody

Iím impressed, I have to admit. Seldom do I encounter a blog thatís both educative and entertaining, and without a doubt, you've hit the nail on the head. The issue is an issue that too few folks are speaking intelligently about. Now i'm very happy I came across this in my hunt for something concerning this.

A motivating discussion is definitely worth comment. I believe that you should write more about this subject matter, it may not be a taboo matter but typically folks don't speak about such issues. To the next! Kind regards!!

Hi there, I do believe your site could possibly be having web browser compatibility issues. Whenever I take a look at your web site in Safari, it looks fine however, if opening in I.E., it has some overlapping issues. I just wanted to provide you with a quick heads up! Apart from that, great site!
