Sleeping in car at resort

Anyone ever done it? Get any hassle?

Think you could get away with some layers and a 30*F sleeping bag?

Was thinking the same thing. I don't know if I could since the parking lot only holds 200 cars tops. Wanna do it for the news years eve thing at my resort. Riding until 12.

It all depends on what resort. What resort are you asking about?

Definitely depends on where. Though with a 30 degree bag, I'd bring a few extra blankets along.

Just be sure you park AWAY from anything that needs to be plowed the next day....you don't want to wake up under a snow removal machine...

Be careful, if it is snowing, or snow in the forecast, don't leave the engine on. Many people have died in their cars from car camping in a blizzard from CO2 poisoning.

Get a down sleeping bag for -C temps. Or a deep cycle battery and a inverter + Electric blanket.

Some places have strict rules for overnights. National, parks, forests, state parks, different everywhere.

I use to go snow camping all the time. I used a 0 degree bag with a +15 degree fleece liner in it. If you want to go to the extreme you can get a mylar blanket ( mylar blanket at REI.com ) and sleep with that over you to help contain body heat in the cold.

Never take life seriously. Nobody gets out alive anyway.
