End thermostat wars in the car
It never fails. I selflessly agree to drive home late at night from a marathon day trip with friends. My passengers all religiously fall asleep 15 minutes after we get on the road. Since I can’t blast the radio, I make sure to turn the thermostat down. This ensures that the car stays cool and I stay alert on my lonely drive. Inevitably, someone eventually wakes up long enough to start whining about the cold.
To my rescue comes the heated electric travel blanket from the Auto Sport Catalog. Warm on its own but better plugged in! This simple yet ingenious cover includes a 5 ˝ foot cord that plugs into a cigarette lighter for powered warmth. At 40” x 58,” this comfy cover is big enough for two. At last, I can drive in comfort.
Now, about that snoring problem…
