I got out to do a little bit of car camping during a heavy snowfall warning, it really took me back to the times I lived in a vehicle. Temperatures dropped to -14 celcius, or 7f. I stayed fairly cozy through the night, but there were some cold moments.

    I live in my car and my tips are this.. use Winco for their bathrooms and if you need to purchase food, and you can sleep in the parking lot. I say winco because it’s a 24/7 store and you can always go in and their will always be people around if theirs an emergency.
    Use gyms or truck stops like flying jay for showers

    I had to laugh when you got mad that it wasn’t toasted. You didn’t ask for toasted. ☺️ Before starting you car, set the alarm twice to make the horn chirp, then start it. Makes it really look like it was remotely started.

    I love occasional urban car camping. It is kind of nostalgic for me, too. I remember having to do it after I got out of college, and it was actually really fun. I remember bundling up, enjoying junk food snacks and playing Monster Hunter 3 on my DS.

    One of the main issues I had sleeping in vehicles for a few months was dealing with the bright lights at Walmart and Loves'.
    But it seems like snow would provide good cover and some light blockage. Of course being in Canada helps - I was in Alamothafuckinbammy. Would also require a heavily insulated bag, obviously.
    And my Anytime Fitness membership I maintained during was the best $40 per month I've ever spent.

    Enjoying your videos Steve. I once drove my honda insight mk1 from manchester in the uk to the swiss alps to go snowboarding. After making the ferry crossing to france i pulled over exhausted and slept for the night in the car. An suv would have been bliss. There is literally no easy sleeping position in a 2 seater honda hybrid. Plus my sleeping bag was pretty weak for the drop in temp. Anyway i made it and the holiday was excellent. Thanks for the videos.

    I hope one of the 2000 comments mention that if you sit inside of a coffee shop where they have free Wi-Fi you can upload if you’re lucky and you get a good signal without using any of your bandwidth. Many places have Wi-Fi around where I live in the Northeast. Maybe that’s not the case and the smaller towns you go. But I would still have a look around. Sometimes you can get good Wi-Fi at the library.

      @Steve Wallis do you guys have anything like staples? At Staples in the United States they have it’s like an office store and they have workstations that you can rent with your credit card. And they have full Internet on them are usually go there if I need to print out a work order for a customer and I’m too far away from the house. I live on the road when I’m working. I have my own business servicing restaurants computer equipment and I cover all of New England. And I have slept in my car many many times so that I can stay out and hit a bunch of places that are really far away from my house. Loving your show! :)

    The " camping out in the vehicle " thing , I currently do that ( not getting enough hours working to afford rent ) , picked up a small van and try to keep it clean and running and park where I don't bother anyone ( police even leave me alone ) . Hopefully when this is all over with , things will change and I will find something better ( Montana maybe ? ) I do work to pay my way and never look down on those who are in the same situation as me .
