Duct tape.

Thank the deities for duct tape. If the world survives the Zombie Apocolypse it will be due to the multitudinous powers of this magical substance.

But for the pre-zombie apocalypse it does wonders at sealing up “vents” and covering windows during the first cold spell.

If I could find my down booties I’d be set, but they seem to have disappeared. It’s possible they accidentally got sent to the goodwill when they were actually in the other pile. Or they may be buried somewhere in storage instead of in the cab section of the truck where they’re supposed to be.

Overall, it’s pretty okay temperature wise.

I have my oil lantern burning and that gives off a bit of heat. All the gaps are sealed up and the windows are covered.

The camper is rocking a fair bit, the wind is strong, but I don’t think there’s any danger of the truck flipping over. It feels like being in a boat in some waves to me.

I’m wearing my fleece pajamas (I wish I had some of those footy pj’s like when I was a kid) and sort of feel like I’m camping out still.

I wonder how the street guys I met the other day are doing. And the several other mobile homeless people I’ve seen around this past week. I’m the only one I’ve seen with a camper. (I have seen sone RV’s around that I wonder if their people aren’t doing the same thing i’m doing). But trying to keep warm curled up in the backseat of a car is going to be tough.

Keep warm everyone!

    Not to be too overly cautious, but is there any venting to the outside from your cabin? Would your oil lamp give off toxic fumes that could hurt you? I mean, I dunno, but I’m just asking.

    I agree. Fire consumes Oxygen, so do you, so does Keegan. Hear stories every year of someone that tries to use a space heater in the house with tragic results. Would a CO detector be in the budget?

  3. There are plenty of air gaps in my camper! She said as she shivered.

    A CO detector would probably be a good idea as the weather gets colder and I start sealing the gaps more permanently.
