I realize "cold" is a relative term, especially if you are from Alaska, but it is cold at night here this time of year. Not bad for a couple nights, but 2 weeks would not be fun in my opinion. Anywho, there are hotels at $30/night around here and at least you have a shower. Recently I stayed somewhere that offered camping and casitas and it was only $5 more for the casita than it was for the camping spot, crazy. If you are young and adventuresome go on couchsurfing.com and look for someone who will provide a place for free...or as they used to say...ass, grass or gas no one rides for free.
