Usually we are a little cooler down here, but those are the temps I've been seeing here too the last few days

And the JK Experience Weekender will start in PHX in 2 weeks. Thankfully we bounce up to higher elevations fairly quickly, to a balmy 90. LOL

It's gotten hot here but nothing too bad yet.

From last summer (forgot it in my Jeep):

Well, with a heavy heart, I decided to put the top up this evening. Doesn't look it will be coming back down until the temps do. Unless of course, I pick up a new bikini top and a wrap-around windjammer. The AZ sun killed my bikini top in 2 summers...

As a Native I love it still running with no top the looks I get are priceless. This seperates the real Zonies from the fakes and they run home for the summer. I also work in Bullhead City- Laughlin area where it gets to 125 each year. They say that Az. has some of the worst drivers.Yet 90 percent are transplants from somewhere else. I know Iam going to catch shit on this so let it begin. I get a smile on my face when at the end of the day I start my Jeep and the temp say's 128 degrees.

Well, you sir, are crazy! But, I guess I get funny looks back home in CO walking the dog in shorts when it is 10 below too

Born and raised there. Came out here and laughed when it got to 103 and people were crying like crazy. Five years later I'm one of they cry babies.

That's way past my threshold for riding topless, SpiderWeb Shade or not. I carry some extra weight (alright, a lot ), and I'm not trying to sweat my fucking ass off everywhere I go.

I am only going to put my top on for the monsoon. I got rid of my bikini top two months ago and just have a shade screen on now. I can take the heat but I don't think the dash electronics can take the rain on it.

The heat doesn't bother me, the wife doesn't like it but tolerates it, but it's just too rough on my boy (5y.o.). He doesn't complain, but I can tell the heat really takes a toll on him. So, it was either put the top on or leave him at home, and I gotta have my buddy with me...

I am actually a native AZ'nian too, born and raised. Even still I hate temps above 105*-110* and i've seen the 120* temps. When we get down to end of Sept-Oct you better believe doors and top is coming down!

They (JK Experience) keep it vague.
They let us know where we will start Phoenix and end, in Sedona.

So my guess is trails North of Phoenix.
None of the trails in the PHX/Florence area.

I chatted with Mel a few days ago and he mentioned a possible Show & Shine on Thursday night before you guys head out on Friday. Hope it happens and we can fight the heat with some

It was 98 degrees in Colorado Springs today! It felt like I was in AZ, but I will be down there this weekend so I'm sure I will be begging for 98. Haha
