    Sounds about perfect Butch. Shouldn't take the steaks long to get done. And just think how good that cold beer will taste.

    Checking the weather channel on my phone the 10 day shows highs in the low 90's and lows around 70... Not much different then most other parts of the country.. and better then it has been in many!

    Drink lots of water .. start a day or two before you go!! I suggest drinking a small V-8 juice every morning and evening to help replentish things
