Hey pards!


I'm embarking on my journey to relocate in the Bozeman, MT area for grad school.

General question: If anyone has lived in this general area during winter in their skoolie, what are some tips and tricks you've learned to not turn into a human popsicle while you're there? (For reference, I grew up in a very similar place in Idaho so I'm not foreign to the tundra temps, just looking for tips I may have missed.)

More specific question: Any beta on good areas to park during the shoulder season when the weather is still good and I dont need to worry about winterizing? I'd love to get to know the area a little bit before I land The Doodlebus in a permanent location for the winter months.

Check out www.permies.com. They are doing loads of stuff in that area to enable more comfortable and sustainable living in exterreme conditions.
I’d like a car wash that sprays spray foam insulation instead of soap. Drive though and come out insulated on the outside. Then drive through a fiberglass sprayer. Done, I dont like doing insulation obviously.
