Back when I was rocking with our band, every one of us resided out of a van; Not even a huge van, a little Econovan that was barely big enough to hold the 4 of us, let alone our gear, and all of us had to strap all our stuff to the roof, plus alternate who is sitting on the floor plus the back seat just to figure out a schedule for resting, but despite all of that, I remember those days easily as the best days of my life. All the hardship, all the hundreds of days on the road, none of that stands out in our mind as much as the fun times; That antique van didn’t even have a real cooling system installed in it! The cooling system was as outdated as the rest of the vehicle, plus had not been maintained in over a decade, however once in a while it would spurt out a little cooling from the air vents, but that was really short lived, plus followed hastily by excess heating from the engine. The engine constantly ran really hot, plus that meant the heating constantly felt as if it was running on full blast. After a while every one of us just used tape in addition to cardboard to cover up the air vents to keep the sizzling hot air out a little while; On sizzling days every one of us would take some A/C breaks, stopping at gas stations when everyone didn’t need gas or food. All of us would just go inside to soak in their air conditioner for a few hours, to make a play for cooling ourselves off just a touch.
