I hate the desert. I'm comparing the pros and cons of breaking my seal and sleeping in my -10° reefer.

The only thing I don't like about winter is ice. The temps are right up my alley.

Speaking of winter....does reefer freight drop off in the cold months?

Never pulled reefer.. but from what understand it stays pretty constant year round compared to van. People always need food

The desert heat isn't so bad.... try the humid heat of central and coastal Texas... that really sucks. was 100º here in San Antonio today with the humidity it was sticky and felt like about 110º.

When I lived in Desert Hot springs, CA I delt with tripple digit temps all the time in the summer... didn't bother me much because it was a dry heat which actually feels cooler than humid heat. it can be 110 in palm springs and 95 in san antonio. palm springs will feel cooler than san antonio.

I don't like winter much but I can deal with it. I can drive in the snow and ice just fine. Sometimes I might slip n slide a little but I know how to keep control. I spent 3 years in ohio and had to learn to drive in the snow and ice the hard way.... by not having a choice. it's a lot like driving in the sand in the desert... don't stop if you can help it, don't slam on the brakes, don't make sudden turns or anything... unless you're doing it for fun. the biggest thing I see is people who stop in the ice... have fun getting going again.

I hate all the heat. It's gets pretty nasty with the humidity in Indiana too.
