Well tonight's adventure is parking next to a group of RVs and semi trucks under a "No Overnight Parking" sign at Walmart. Safety in numbers?

Wow maybe the flagship store in Columbus is different than the other micro centers.. they have all kinds of parts and fans and electronics bits .. seem there has to be some byopc places in Denver, it's a very tech friendly city !

So one of my tricks for boondocking is to look up Walmarts on Google Maps and turn on satellite view and zoom in all the way to see if I can spot a camper in their parking lot. There are quite a few that claim to not allow overnight parking but have lots of campers.

We drove about 3x as far as I had planned today. Woke up in Denver, spent the day at Union Reservoir park, and going to sleep in Rawlins, Wyoming.

Wyoming has a LOT of empty space, and a lot of miles between exits!

Nice cool temperature when I woke up but it's quickly heating up! Solar is already full, need to find some shade with wifi!

am I correct in that solar panels work better when the sun is bright but the panel temperatires are physically cooler? or was that only older panels?

ie when you are driving on a sunny day vs parked, your solar does well with the airflow over the modules..
