Little Ice On the Prairie
With one-stop left in Oklahoma it was time to be introduced to winter camping in the van. We did successfully graduate from kindergarten so we had a basic understanding that winter is cold and the closer to the equator you get, the warmer it is. Yet, we overvalued Oklahoma being considered “South.” While we were assured that ice storms are not common this time of year, that is very, very cold comfort when you are sleeping in a van in below-freezing temperatures. We woke up in a Pilot parking lot, flanked by roaring trucks and with an iced-over windshield.
