Day 69, 70, 71, 72 - Clermont, FL - TT

Monday (69) - It’s a little before noon and 82°F already. Surprisingly, I enjoy sitting outside especially if there is a light breeze. It’s too hot if there isn’t any shade. After the first test session, I went to float around the pool for a while. It was nice and relaxing. Only a couple of people were there. Maybe it’s too hot…

I'm joining the afternoon session from inside of the RV as it's almost 90°F outside right now. That's approaching "hot" unless there is a breeze and/or some cloud cover. 

Tuesday (70) - Kind of overcast today. I took advantage of the lack of direct sun and washed the Jeep and the front of the RV. I am trying out this new car wash soap. Hoping that it'll make the bugs easier to clean off. The front of the RV was plastered with bugs after only a 20-mile trip up the highway. Bob, a friend here in Orlando, said that the bug guts will eat through the paint. Many RV parks don't want you washing your car on the grass but this place didn't seem to care. And encouraged you to have a clean car and RV.

Wednesday (71) - The weather app says that it's 86°F right now but it is very pleasant with the light breeze. Participated in both test sessions today. Outside for the first one but by 4:30, it felt much warmer than the thermometer indicated. Maybe because no breeze.

Thursday (72) - After this, no more counting days out of Alaska as the flight to/from Alaska at this time of the year is about the same as the COLA benefit. In other words, flights are ridiculously expensive from Florida to Alaska. I'm not sure where the expensive part is. Orlando or Alaska. I sent email to the Division of Retirement and Benefits to calculate what I owe them from Feb. 22, 2022, to now for overpayment. 

Right now, I'm waiting for the first test session. Not doing it outside as it's a bit on the hot side (86°F). And, with last night’s rain, kind of muggy. It’s even warmer (93°F) for the second test session. It’s supposed to start cooling down in a couple of days.
