182 people died in that dry heat in the Phoenix metro last year, most of them over 50.

Reminds me, I've got to get the generator serviced, so I could at least run coach A/C off that.
I once napped under my truck while on a camping trip in the desert. Late afternoon early spring temperature over 100 degrees in a totally open site made me scoot under the only shade available.

Tough choice for me - Lose my mind from the heat or lose my mind from claustrophobia.

If you need gloves to use a toilet in an RV, your doing it wrong, and probably shouldn't be left to roam without a responsible adult nearby.

That's my take.

Having said that, I'd do it in a minute (plus a healthclub membership) before I'd pauperize myself just to have an apartment.

Generally, I'd say that single people can live a lot closer to the bone in terms of getting by than a couple or family.

Peppers are people who are prepared for a disaster. I've learned a lot from reading about them or watching videos. There's a lot I don't know though.

The freeze dried food, for example, would be a great idea for van life.

Only if you enjoy eating it. Also you will quickly find out it costs several times more than fresh, canned or frozen.

What an existence!
What an assumption!
