I ended up talking with a bunch of the YT folks over the 2 days.   I saw Quinn briefly she had a very cool steam engine demo. Rucker was there but I didn’t have occasion to speak with him.

You missed out,  he is good to talk with,   Meet him several years ago at a antique and engine show we went to.   He was the opposite of some of the others,  who seemed like they could not be bothered with you.

Ya some folks esteem themselves a bit much but part of that is insecurity.   Machinist/engineer type are notoriously social awkward.   I just plow past it and if they stonewall well then what are you going to do? I move on.  Regarding the weather, that “dry heat” you always hear about in the west really is true.   It was 95+ but in spite of that at the end of the day I wasn’t all pitted out. Could feel the moisture being sucked out of ya even guzzling water all day.

Yea the dry heat, if not carful can be bad,  as you do not realize how much water you lose since with a breeze it evaporates off you cooling you.   
Then you figure out you have not been drinking enough to keep up with it.   But is seems better than the humidity of the gulf coast where the water vapor off the gulf just compounds the heat.  You know how much water you have lost as it does not evaporate, so you just seem to get hotter and wetter. 
That's my 2 cents,   having spent time in both types of places.

We tend to get very humid heat up here. And the summers only seem to be getting hotter and hotter (thanks global warming).
And ya, you just get wetter and wetter without cooling down. I have one of those 3 gal ballpark water jugs, I'll suck back the whole thing on a busy outside work day.

Shawn, send some of that Global Warming my way will you ?
Temps dropping into the high 50's low 60's at night here in central Illinois. Had to break out the sweat pants and quilt lined flannels the past few nights down at the camp fire.

Global warming makes the temp swing high, and low.
