I know how you feel about the weather in Texas. I took basic training in Witchita Falls in July,1944. It was hot and dry. So dry our clothes didn't get wet with all the sweating. It evaporated too fast. We were required to take salt tablets to replenish the salt we were loosing.
How is your 240D rebuild comming along?
Try and stay cool and all the luck to you. Good luck of course.
