But then again, I'm a type of person who does not require a lot of water even if it is hot.

I've ridden in some pretty beastly hot conditions, but I've never found that my black shorts contribute to the problem. All my bike shorts are black.My words also.
2. Heavy: I suppose they are a few mg heavier than others, but I did not notice.
A few mg? The Marathon Plus series weigh more than twice what some other touring suitable tires weigh. In the size you mention they are just under 2 pounds a piece. Also they have a very dead feeling ride that is at least partly due to the stiff sidewalls.
They are very flat resistant though, so if flat resistance at all costs trumps ride feel and very a significant weight difference they may suit you. I rode on a set for a few hundred miles and hated them enough to take them off.
Personally I would pick a lighter tire from their line. I don't have much experience with their other models so I won't recommend a specific one.
The reason for my worries is mainly the McKenzie Pass which has been mentioned numreous times in this forum. The snow might stay well into July.I do bicycle 125 mi/day and with the snow in the Rockies I have to start quite late in June (in VA) in order to do the mountains without closed roads.This doesn't make sense to me. There's very little chance of closed roads in the Rockies on the TransAm route after June 1, and only a small chance after mid-May. Even at 125 miles a day, you could still start in May in Yorktown.
Could you please provide some more information on that tiny chain tool.
