Seems to me it would be less work to wrestle a bear for his cave.

Back at my desk after a weekend camping trip.

We had a lot of rain Friday night, but it stopped overnight and was dry by morning. The crazy thing was, after all the leaf cover was dry and we had returned from a morning hike, a trickle had appeared in our camp area. I followed it to its source, and it was bubbling up out of the ground.

I've seen springs before, but they were already running. This is a spring I saw just as it was beginning to spring. Pretty cool. Cool that is, until the trickle got stronger and then all the paths became little streams and we had big puddles growing all around the camp area.

Nah. It was probably clean enough to drink right at the source, but it was literally in the middle of a group campsite. Humans are filthy disgusting creatures and there is no telling what had been done to that spot on the ground before the water came.

There is no water 'clean enough to drink' untreated.

Even falling from the sky, it's too dirty to be good for ya.

Skip the hassle of camping, go Glamping in California.

Adventure - Whale watching, a campfire with s'mores, hiking and kayaking await...or read a book and enjoy the ocean breeze

Back in my wild days as recon I bought a foldable sleeping pad. It wasn't very thick and we draw our body outline on it and cut off everything else...
It was good as a cushion too and as we didn't sleep a lot it served us well.

Do they actually suffocate or is it that the space inside the car, however insulated with mountains of snow, is too big to warm? I'm guessing, now that I think about it, 2 tons of metal is a greater heat sink than two tons of snow. Presumably, it would be better to make a snow cave outside the car.

Did I answer my own question?
I did some survival in Austria and Finland. So your answer is correct and then snow insulates very well. There's no wind/chill factor to consider when staying inside the snow. It's a smaller space than probably a car and with your body head and a small candle you could live quite comfortably for a night or two.
