Cool Camper 6; poor man's AC

I have two of the personal misters, and can testify that they have practically saved our lives on several occasions.

I also think setting one of these on low in front of a fantastic fan would help cool down inside a FG trailer (will experiment with this soon). When air is blowing, the mist evaporates so there would not be a concern about getting your interior wet.

But this bigger model, for around $69, could cool down your entire awning area, and would really make the heat of the day bearable outside. Not to mention it requires no electricity, no battery, and does allow you to sit outside without heat stroke.

Cheers, LP

But those reading this should also know that, like evaporative coolers, they don't do much more than get you wetter in high humidity areas. The street cafes of Phoenix & Sedona are lined with these while in Augusta, GA they don't appear to even know what they are.

Yes, completely true. These are best used where there is dry heat. Like in California, with or without the fires.

(God bless our firefighters. I just heard this morning that we may be asking for help from Australia and New Zealand!)

Some of the power came back ON in Chelan last night, but shortly afterwards the only working cell tower's back-up generator ran out of LP, and it's on top of the Butte, right in the middle of the initial fire zone.


As of 2PM the power was on in about 80% of the houses, one cell tower is back up, and the optical communication system is back up. But there is still active fire uplake and east of town.


Judith was interviewed today by the Seattle FOX affiliate so I will have to bite down hard and watch FOX news tonight (LOL... Please)


The request for AU and NZ assistance is per a reciprocal agreement. We send firefighters down there when they are dealing with huge range fires. Right now there are no spare fire fighting resources in the entire western U.S.
