As for sleeping temperature, we only carry the air conditioner to weekend events where we have access to electricity. Otherwise it stays at home.

We're normally off-the-grid campers.

We camp in the mountains, high desert, and Canada, during the hot months; and the Keys and other warm places, in the cold months.

Here's another way we use that tarp-- to make an awning, by attaching it to the roof rack with bungee cords and the ground, with stakes and bungee cords.

It allows us to leave the sliding door open on rainy days.

BuzzFeed actually used this pic, with my permission, in one of their "camping hacks" articles.

We don't cool.

We carry canned meats and tomatoes and boxed broth and other goods, packages of pepperoni and salami, root vegetables, rice, beans, lentils, fresh eggs, tea bags, coffee, wine, etc.

I've even made fresh spaetzle at campsites.

We always eat great food and I give away the leftovers to any campers who come sniffing around.


What do you use for air conditioner? How do you power it?


"We just sit a window unit on a cooler that's sitting on a Hitch-Haul shelf and zip the DAC Explorer 2 door around the air conditioner."

When we judge BBQ competitions there's usually electricity available-- so we just plug in.

The rest of the times we seek out comfortable temperatures for our camping trips so that we won't need air conditioning. High elevations, in the summer, and beaches, in the winter.

When we're off grid that would require a generator, which is more trouble than we care to deal with.

We'd rather change elevation.

Oh, there are 10 story hotels close by, and even the short hotels have AC here.

Everyone used to say it was as flat as a pancake around here, until someone thought to do a study. Now we get to say we're flatter than a pancake, with the data to back it up.

But is is flatter then a crepe? :-)
