So many people it seems take months, or even years to live life out of a car or truck traveling, paddling, and loving life. I had a few questions, not about car set up (plenty on other posts already), but more for treatment of gear.
First, to the kayakers!: I know UV can be hard on plastic, but so can the heat of being in a baking car. So how do you move around with your boats? On the top of the car, exposed to the sun, rain and other elements? Or in a van/truck where temps will be hot enough to... well... hot! Lesser of two evils?
Now for everyone!!: What about clothing... I have concern for the longevity and quality of dry suit / top gaskets, as well as any other glued products (fishing waders as well???) being stuck in a baking car during those late summer paddles. Is this really an issue? Any solutions to the problem?
And who can forget the rafters: Obviously being in a hot car is not good for the glue on boats and most likely not good for the fabric itself. Any way to bring along the boat on these adventures?
Thanks to all posters for your wisdom and advise!!!
If you are lucky enough to be in the mountains, you are lucky enough.
