Over night trip to the local mountains....

Had a small space heater in the van which is still empty inside. Snowed most of the night with a 25-40 mph wind. Good times but a little cold. Think it was 25 or so out. The small heater kept it about 40 or so inside.

Couple images from today.

Re: Over night trip to the local mountains....

What kind of space heater are you using? Gas?

Re: Over night trip to the local mountains....

John, it was a small electric portable heater plugged into shore power. I knew it was not going to do much but thought I would bring it anyway. Also tried a parabolic heater but it was to bright and I could not set it up right. I had a good sleeping bag and Thermarest to sleep on. Ended up making a mini tent inside the van towards the front. Draped a large comforter from the cab roof down towards the floor to cut the van in thirds to semi trap the heat towards the front. Worked better than I thought it would. Slept on the floor between the seats. Good times!

Had a great time just working on that after dark with a case of beer.

A case of beer should take care of the sleep requirement in any temp!

Ahhhh.....shore power. That makes the heat equation a lot easier doesn't it.

A good dark beer?

Re: Over night trip to the local mountains....

Wheat beer is my preference but most will do in a pinch.

Wheat beer? That's the stuff you have to put lemon in to make it drinkable isn't it?
