If you live in SE Louisiana and do not need AC, my hat is off to you! I live in northeast FL, and AC is a must, year-round. In fact, the humidity right now is so unpleasant makes going outside a dread. So, the Oliver AC is very important for my camping experience and certainly worth carrying my Honda 2200i with gasoline stored in Jerry cans when not camping at locations with power hookups. Have lived in TN for 5-years and agree AC makes life better most of the year (some snow days, but many hot, humid days). Next summer we intend to find that camping location without humidity – that is the worst. I can do hot, but, when the air is 95% saturated, and mosquitoes and gnats are never-ending, it is quite difficult to enjoy camping. Thankful for breeze.
Obviously, this is a hot-button for me – humidity and bugs. Been in north FL most of my life and seems to get worse every year (or maybe I am just getting older and less tolerant – who knows). As I recall my days as a young man, I did not seem to mind as much (or, it simply was not as bad?).
I do believe fuel cells will replace generators, and nuclear power for generating electricity (and electricity for powering vehicles) will replace fossil fuel combustion, these technologies have zero greenhouse gas emissions and will move the planet toward the goal of net zero carbon emissions by 2050 (by the way, doubtful I will be alive to experience this goal). Solar panels and wind turbines simply will never get the planet there (but, another topic altogether).
I do wish Oliver could find a quieter AC. As I grow older and experience more hearing loss, the AC does seem to get quieter.
