Now that's not entirely fair. Some of us do live in HOT climates. 100 degrees in the desert is balmy if you live somewhere that reaches 110 and is humid. In fact I wish I was there now. Its 85% and feels like a sauna outside. Its February.
But, unless you live in the suburbs of hell like us, the desert is a formidable foe. I will say that water has never tasted as delicious as it does out there. Maybe its the alkali... Or maybe I was just thirsty as fuck.
I lived in San Antonio last year and Black Rock City was a welcome relief, but that was during the unusually nice and calm weather.
And San Antonio is bone dry compared to Houston or the east coast.
