Never mind everything else but what to do with the cold. What do you people use to stay warm besides sleeping bags?
I have a -20 degree F NF bag. Very warm. I use a heavy moving blanket against the carpet in the back of my car, then a closed cell foam pad, and then a thermorest self inflating pad, and then a comforter on top of that which I wrap around my bag. Very warm. I have slept all the way down to -15 comfortably.
Also, I have a dog with me. When its cold, she lays right up against me.
Also, I have a dark sheet that runs on bungee cords across the seatbacks so that it is private, and deeply tinted windows. Nobody can see in unless they press their face against the glass, or I turn on a light. So I can pretty much park and sleep anywhere that I want.
