  1. My saving grace is a heating pad and portable power source I sleep on my side and keep it on my hip. It’ll last for days

  2. Do you think using mylar on the windows would help?
    Mylar blankets are so cheap and they work
    I use them to grow fruits and veggies inside my house and I’m in Maine, can’t grow much outside for long, the mylar keeps my plants warm

  3. I couldnt live in a car, or van because when I open my eyes I only have a min to get to the restroom. Even if I wake up during the night.

  4. That gas thing looks very dangerous, (i just start the car turn heater on for a bit until temperature a climates to my body again.) Also i look for under bridge parking to spend the night. Good luck everybody!

  5. I hate the summer heat and I live in Phoenix right now… it's 110 today…in SEPTEMBER!!! I cannot wait to start my first full car life journey later this month… heading up Northwest before it gets too cold!

  6. I really appreciate this. I camped with my son for a year and while still on the east coast at the end of October, it got cold at night. I ended up having to use stubby thick candles in a short glass holder to keep warm.

  7. Check in the sport store buy underwear’s and stock with merino wool
    Yes its expensive but it work
    You going to be very warm

  8. Wool is your friend. Even one wool blanket as close to your body as you can stand is so much warmer than a pile of synthetic blankets. Wool is also breathable so you won't get clammy.

  9. wear a mask to keep nose warm, i used it outside on the ground in bags ontop corrugated. a mask worked well. be safe peace🕊

  10. Everyone should keep a wool blanket. They don't attract moisture they dry really quick if they do get wet. Lots of benefits, just get one but don't put them in the dryer

  11. A little propane cooker in the back, late in the day boil water carefully pour into hot water bottle. Put directly into your bedding. It will give you a few hours.

  12. In the cold:
    Park under an evergreen tree.
    Park against a western wall preferrably where theres hard paved area.
    Im tall so l use the drivers seat the footwell is the enemy. Pad out the floor as this can get freezing.
    Adjust your sleeping l always wake up at half past threezing. Just turn your motor on and listen to the radio. The morning sun is nice to snooze to or go shopping.
    At least the bugs are gone and the little miscreants are tucked up in warm beds.
    Get sleep where you can.

  13. I will never use an airfilled mattress because the air takes on the temp. of the surrounding air. better to have a foam mattress

  14. You’re struggles and foibles are genuine! I’ve been 2 weeks involuntary stealth camping (homeless) and nobody told me how expensive eating and driving would be.

  15. My generation will be known as the generation that settles for less.

    This would have been an unimaginable idea 20 years ago.
