Oh Nuts!!

Another darned "everybody knows it to be true and it's backed up by the 
experts" that just isn't in my experience.  In the early '60's, I made a trip 
at least monthly all summer to Winterhaven CA, where I kept a boat at my 
parent's place.  Winterhaven is across the river from Yuma, AZ and summer 
temperatures are generally 110 to 120F.  I kept the heater shut off all 
summer long, without overheating problems.  No, Cap'n, Bob wasn't around to 
save me this time, either.  This is pretty much highway driving, rarely less 
than 55.  I did wait until sundown  to start the trip home, but generally 
drove at least the 25 miles to town and back during the day.
