Minimalist Truck Camper

I can’t help myself. I keep discarding items I thought were on the essentials list. I remember living in the back of


The Big Blue Fart

The Big Blue Fart

for several years. I had no solar power. No back up battery. No cell phone. No computer. No heater.

Why do I think I need that stuff now? There are libraries. I can charge things up as I drive. Eliminating the solar part of the budget saves $2,000. It saves space. It saves me from having to worry about stuff I am not comfortable with, like a Digital Charge Controller or a Power Inverter.

 Update: I opted for a  Goal Zero Yeti 400 . It was a faithful companion and helper for 5 years. Then I went even smaller to just an outdoor solar panel.
