Hi Gary
            I will be all over Arizona. From Tucson to the Grand 
Canyon. After the DCC I will be doing the National Parks thing.

Thanks Alan for the extended forecast if that is correct then even 
90's will not be much different than Long Island in the summer time.

I was of course worried of the 110 and higher tempertures.

I have been using the heater in the car more than the a/c lately.  Once you get into the higher elevations, Arizona can cool off quite a bit.

worried about the gear in the car.  Never had a problem with it.  
Sometimes an LCD display will darken, but it recovers,  If it doesn't 
look like rain, leave a window cracked open.  Makes it nicer for 
humans, too, when you return to the car.  Get a sun reflector to put 
in the windshield when parked in the sun.  I am not sure it keeps the 
interior that much cooler, but it prevents a hot steering wheel and 
shades LCD panels.

Let us hope we never witness the "Silence Of The Hams"
