I hate heat! Well, not body heat, obviously, but weather heat and humidity. I hate it with a passion.

So my husband and I are leaving to meet our oldest son and his class as we help chaperone the class trip to Greenfield Village. It's an outdoor museum near Detroit that shows the way people use to live in the 17 and 18 hundreds.

The weather is suppose to be in the low 90's and high humidity.

Oh this is going to hurt. :(

I'm sure it'll be awesome. Just go in nothing but your bananana hammock and some oil.

Stay hydrated and be sure to ingest liquids of your choice!:p

It's supposed to get to 98 degrees today, and 101 over the weekend. Ugh, July and August are going to be dreadful (as will the electric bills...)

I think that would make it the last time I chaperon for any of the kids. :-D

I loved the giant piston at GFV. That and the college girls dressed in period clothing.

Granted, I was like 12 the last time I was there, so there's no accounting for my taste at the time.

If you think that's bad, I've been in Romania on vacation since May 16th, and it's been over 100 and humid here a couple of times.

Just pull your kid from the trip and go to a movie or something.

I hated going on those class trips to snoozefests like the Botanical Gardens.

I thought it sounded interesting, but I'm a big ole history nerd. :oops: We went to this town in Ohio (can't remember the name of it) that is set in the 1700s, but it's an actual town (like Williamsburg) with shops and restaurants. We had lunch in a real olde English pub. It was very cool.

It's boring from a "I have to go here because of this dumb field trip" perspective.

From a "let's teach our kids about history in a way that doesn't involve reading from a book" perspective, I'm hoping the GFV is still around in about 10 years or so.

You know what was truly booooring...Motorworld. It's like Disney, only without any element of fun.

Yep; go see Zohan, I am.

But the heat and humidity combo does suck.

I'm a history nerd, too, but not when that history is pieces of history moved around to create a fake village. I'd rather go to revolutionary bars (The Green Dragon in Boston) or Abe Lincoln's childhood home (on Knob Creek, natch :wink: ). :-D
