It’s that time of the year again when the memory of warm summer days are quickly fading from our minds and the thoughts of cold, shivering nights are rushing in to replace them, filling us full of dread! But, today I have good news! Living the life of a Nomad on wheels goes a long way to solving that problem!
At one time my life was ruled by the time-clock but fortunately those days are gone forever. Today my life is ruled by my own internal thermostat, if the temperature isn’t what I want it to be, I just turn the key and drive away to where it’s more to my liking. In the vandwelling/RVing world that’s know as being a “snowbird” because we fly away with the weather and seasons.
Of course many of us aren’t in the position to be mobile yet; you may be living in a van or RV but family or economic circumstances require you to stay where you are and that just happens to be a cold area. I totally understand that.
After my divorce I couldn’t afford to rent an apartment so I moved into a van, but there was no way I was driving away from my young children. So I lived in a van for 6 years in Anchorage, Alaska and I learned to adapt to living very comfortably in a van in extreme cold.
