Washing your face in 40 degree water is not the most pleasant experience. I actually have a nice little coleman stove I can heat up water with. But its not the safest thing to run a stove inside a van. The van will smell of the fumes. And when your trying to be incomspicious, the light from the flames kind of give me away. So what to do ...what to do...
I went to Walmart and bought the best Thermo I can find. $21 bucks! But worth it. I went and filled up with hot water from a Chinese Resteraunt. Supposely, the thermo can hold heat for 24 hours. Not bad.
Tonight, instant coffee or a cup of ramen!
Don't take hot water for granted people.
