Re: Looking for tips on in car AC

I'm surprised an automotive A/C system would lack recirc mode. It may be there, but not labeled as such. Perhaps in a setting called something like "max defrost". . Oh yes, Elliot, I found it right away. There was a max defrost.. on my effing microwave. Thank you so much for your help, th...

Thanks, but it's not what I am looking for.
We'll be sleeping in the van and need AC.

There are few issues with that. Dust #1 Hot air harder to cool #2. I am looking for tips on how to so...

Re: Shade structure for your bike

I used a mesh kind of fabric. It was white and provided great shade. It really did work. One of the best materials for this application is Organza (gota love the name). You can find it on http://www.ebay.com/sch/Sewing-Fabric-/160737/i.html?_catref=1&_fln=1&_ssn=dreampartycreation&_trksi...

The benefit of having a shade will dramatically extend your bike trips under the sun. It has unlimited decorative solutions an...
