Just plain air temperature...Las Vegas at 115 F.

Overall heat and humidity nastiness...Gainesville, FL inside of Florida Field in the lower sections (below ground level) with the temp about 98 F posted but the thermometers on the field showing 130 F with 100% humidity right after a rainstorm. They were dragging the opposing players off the field with cramps and fans out of the stadium with heatstroke.

Here in Florence last year it reached 44c on one day. Kept cool by drinking lots of water & air conditioning.

Hottest place that isn't home, was Antigua, which was in the high 30's. Kept cool by drinking copious amounts of Wadadli (sp?) and going in the sea/pool.

Casa Grande National Monument in Arizona, August 2003. I don't know the temperature, but the sun burned down with a ferocity that I never knew possible. Fortunately, the very low humidity made a visit to the Indian ruins tolerable.

And don't forget what you have to do with your tools in weather like that. Leave em out in the sun, they get hot enough to burn the hell out of your hands.

You get yourself a cookie tray and put about half an inch of jet fuel in it then leave your wrenches in the jet fuel.

Dallas, Texas, summer 2000. 69 straight days over 100 F. 10 straight over 110 F. 3 straight at 120 F. Went outside and played roller hockey against my brother. Lost 10 pounds. Came back, took cold shower, spent the rest of the day inside with the air conditioning. The bad part was driving around town in my car, whose air conditioning only worked from October through May  Silly And the blacktop at work made it just that much more unbearable.

In a huge lumber drying kiln for a few minutes. Couldn't stand it any longer and walked back outside to a 50°F (about 9°C) foggy night and just about thermal-shocked. We went around to the boiler room and learned that, inside the kiln, it had been 170°F (about 76°C) and 100% humidity because of the water being baked out of the two hundred thousand board feet of 'green' redwood lumber.

Out in the world, highest actual temperature I've seen was in Death Valley California. Between Scotty's Castle and Ubehebe Crater it was 124°F (about 51°C) and we decided not to go down to Furnace Creek that day.

Most uncomfortable. Even though I've lived a year in the Mekong Delta of South Vietnam and a couple of years in Panama and a year or so between Imperial California and Yuma Arizona, the worst was Fort Bragg North Carolina one August. Every day I flew there I sweat through my flight suit everwhere I was in contact with anything - seat, parachute harness, straps. Sweat just ran down out from under my helmet. I was dying and coulnd not wait to get back down to Panama.

Death Valley, USA - The hottest place on earth!
Everglades, Florida, US - Extremely high humidity together with high temperatures makes it almost unbearable. I believe the humidity is 100% most of the time.

Mexico - very hot too! That is where I got my worst sunburn ever.
Bali - As bad as Mexico but I didn't get as bad a sunburn as I did in Mexico
Fiji - Very very hot sometimes too
Singapore was also quite hot, due to the humidity.
Hong Kong

Its hard to say which one was the worst, but they were all extremely hot places (especially for a scandinavian where our summers never go above 30c and the avg temperature during summer is 20c  Wink )

Egypt a few years ago, was supposed to walk around the Temple of Karnak (spelling?) but just couldn't - the heat was so intense it was hard to breathe -We stayed in the coach with the AC, so missed that one!

The whole holiday was the same, the only relief was the pool on the boat we were on on the Nile.
