Back when I was running with my band, both of us lived out of a van; Not even a large van, a tiny panel van that was hardly big enough to hold the four of us, let alone our gear, then both of us had to strap all our things to the roof, as well as take turns sitting on the floor as well as the back just to figure out a schedule of naps, but despite all of that, I remember those afternoons with great joy. All the problems, all the hundreds of kilometers on the road, none of that stands out in my mind as much as the superb times. That seasoned van didn’t even have a real a/c in it! The cooling device was as rundown as the rest of the burnt out vehicle, as well as had not been repaired or taken care of in over a decade! Sometimes it would spit out a little ac from the air vents, however that was consistently not for long, as well as followed suddenly by excess heating from the engine. The motor consistently ran very hot, as well as that meant the heating seriously felt as if it was running on full blast. After a while both of us just used tape as well as cardboard to cover up the air vents to keep the sizzling hot air out a little bit. On sizzling hot afternoons both of us would take A/C breaks, stopping at gas stations or restaurants. Both of us would just go inside as well as soak in their air conditioner for a few hours, to make a play for cooling ourselves off just a little bit.
