stir crazy since this is a debate I suggest you back up your statements with double blind studies, ones that are peer reviewed.

How about making insulated box from rigid foam and puting batteries in that?
Should keep it warm enough to work.

Eventualy with EV trucks camping in winter will be no problem.

Free Radical,

Thanks for posting the link,

The Tesla has a few advantages such as 82 kwh of storage! How lovely that would be.

your talking about one or two geographical areas which is why there is a higher concentration of people there, but drive through toronto, vancouver and thoes types of places and how many rv's do you see in the yards, not many compared to other areas. the largest geographical area of canad will very often see -30 or -35 in the winter..


No one lives in the largest geographical area of Canada.

I think something like 95% of the Canadian population lives within 100miles of the US border.

I see lots of RVs in Toronto. Camping if very popular there.

I guess to each his own, but nobody will ever convince me that such frigid cold temperatures are harmless.
Florida? Mold, mildew, oppressive humidity, hurricanes, murders, are some of Florida's noted characteristics. The average age in Florida is 78.9 years. The average age in British Columbia is 82.1 years or Ontario at 82.4 years, eh.

Average age in Florida is 42. Where in the world did you get your information?

Mold & mildew? Sure, just like any other coastal area. Once it gets out of control, I'll be concerned.

Oppressive humidity? Maybe to some who aren't used to it. Much like oppressive cold (such as the current temperature of -11F in Lanesboro, MN as I write this [emoticon])

And murders?? In Florida? Seriously? Nowhere else, eh?

OK, OK, we get it. You don't like Florida. So noted.

because around 50% of people from BC live in vancouver or victoruia where any temp below 36 degrees is a rarity. so they don't have the stifiling heat of florida or the cold of anywhere else in canada. summers are mild so less skin cancer and so on..
I suggest you look at where Ontario is on the map. In fact, take a look at the Canadian provinces.

Sorry, I meant "lifespan". I've corrected my previous post.

Yes, mold and mildew are problems for people and one of the reasons I and many others don't live in the coastal states. The "oppressive humidity" is the reason for the mold and mildew problems.

Florida's population is around 22 million and in 2020 they had 1,285 murders or 58 murders per million. Canada's entire population is 38 million and in 2020 there were 743 murders or 19 murders per million.

I chose not to live in Florida because of many, many reasons, safety, health, and lifespan being a few.

Yesterday I walked about 3 miles and today I'll go out in our winter weather to walk another 2-5 miles. It's beautiful and peaceful in the Lanesboro/Root River Valley where we live. I actually enjoy winter, but now we have the ability and discretionary money to winter in NM, AZ, and UT, where last year we hiked 107 miles and rode bike for another 425 miles.

Enjoy,

Perry

Florida ranks 27th of all the states in murder rate, so I don't see it as a 'Florida' problem.

I do see it as a US problem, because you're comparing US homicides to Canadian homicides, and as we all know the two countries have vastly different gun laws.

I'll be out on the boat this afternoon if you need me [emoticon]
