Hall of Fame rockers The Lovin’ Spoonful said it best in 1966: “Hot town, summer in the city.” We are now nearing the end of July, and temps will consistently be in the upper 90s.

Local businesses have already begun to advertise “back to school” sales, with entire aisles dedicated to school supplies. Cheerleading camps, as well as drill/dance team camps are underway, and following that comes volleyball, football and band practices, which start at the first of August.

Over the years, I’ve had the good fortune to do quite a bit of camping from Africa to South America. Some were memorable; others I want to forget. One of the best was on the Kanektok River in Alaska.

While out surfing one day, we returned to find out that somebody had stolen our camp – as in tents, chairs, stoves, lanterns and more. Talk about a surprise.
