    My Deluxe Reverb has been in my back seat for a month. Maybe I’ll get it out today.

    Treat the guitar like you would a human.

    I left my Kramer in the trunk all the time over the years. In the dead of winter and sweat-your-balls-off summer. I bought it in '83 and it still looks and sounds amazing. Stop pussying over your ****.

    My two main players, the ones I use every night I play gigs, live in my minivan. So do my two main amps.
    I live in my 31' 5th wheel with my son and 18 other guitars and several small amps so there is seriously no
    room.
    I only bring them in when the temperature drops below zero or over 90. Many years with no problems.

    Camping? I'd bring an old beater acoustic.

    Trailheads are one of the worst places to leave any valuables in a car, dont do it! For a multiple day bp trip, you are just asking for trouble.

    Heat and sun aside, trailheads are a thieves buffet.

    I cant stress enough, DONT DO IT!

    (I do a lot in the outdoors in Wa state. Ive personally seen countless numbers of break ins on trail heads. Its almost safer to leave your guitar in plain view, leave your doors unlocked, and put a "free" sign on it. At least a half smart thief wont smash your car windows).

    Leaving your Stratocaster in a hot car? The Strat Police will come along, see the guitar overheating. break the window, get it out and into the shade with a cool drink. Now the lesson is... Leave the Strat at home to avoid broken windows, and a wilted guitar.

    This is why I keep a couple of cheap guitars around.
