Today was a great day on the sky slope.

U told me Converting a van into a camper is not a bad idea... That is great. I will buy a empty van and I will try to transform something like this, only for 2 persons.

Thx for ur good advice, but I don't need cooker in it. I have my own way to prepare food, not in my car...Where I will go will be into remote places, the places where I can start a fire outside to make food. This is what I like to do. Trust me, is amazing to prepare mushrooms or a fish caught on a mountain river, only on a hot stone who was on fire... I don't need to much comfort. I was all my life into crowded town, I only used dishes and crockery, I only used the noisy kitchen appliances....But sometimes I need to escape and I want to be close to nature, to forget the city, the noise, the problems, so on. Clean water, a sharp knife, a shelter, patience is all I need. I'm crazy, or u understand what i mean??? Do you know the feeling your ears hurts because is so quiet? A normal person can't resist more than 2 days in total silence. But what about 5 days?

To keep me warm into could season I will try to install a parking heaters, I hope this is the right name, or to use my pro sleeping bag made for extreme temperature ( -29C confort / -32 Extreme).
Can u attach some pictures with ur car during the camping?


My ABS rings look like the first type on that link...interesting reading.

I understand about getting away from it all, it's not crazy. But I do like to have a nice dry warm bed and warm showers... :D

Not sure about the parking heaters? But if they burn fossil fuels and their air supply is limited you will have to worry about carbon monoxide.

Sleeping bags can be cosy, but be sure to put good insulation underneath you so you are not on the metal floor of the van. An air mattress is no good, you need some insulating foam. Otherwise the metal will suck the heat right out of you.

Condensation can also be a problem inside an unheated van...

I had a look, but couldn't find any pics so far of me camping in the people carrier. It was more than 4 years ago now and I don't organise my photos properly...I will keep looking.

Nice snow in your video. Here we only had "significant" snow on two occasions this winter and even then there was not much more than 25 mm on the ground.
I tried to drown my sorrows, but somehow they learned how to swim...

SKI-ing in the winter, lots of gardening in the summer (you should see my lawn and trees), love car detailing (actually is one of my big hobbies), trackdays with bimmer and most of all love spending lazy sundays with my beloved wife.

Nice one Miauz :thumbup:

Like the recycle/reuse approach - and the steam punk feel of the end result :)

Reminds me a bit of this in a way...

there are other things to do besides gaming? That's crazy talk! CRAZY TALK I SAY! :P

OK so reading (books), Internet crap on an iPad, still watch TV but it has to be DVR'd since I despise commercials & whenever possible a good movie! There, I guess there are other things than gaming but I don't have to like it! (hey my Steam icon is blinking while I'm typing this is my PC gonna blow up :O )
