    Do you drink the water from your PUP tank?

    I don't, it's easier to just have an aquatainer I know is clean than any creepy crawlies I can't see in the tank. Or just a jumbo case of water bottles, either or.

    The Eagle Project

    Aw, your little ones are going to have great memories helping fix and camp in your rig. Mine are 15 and 12 now, and they still talk about our previous trips. Out of trips to Disney, a cruise, and various other ones, our camping trips to the Black Hills are the best to them, except for Hawaii...

    Which Lubricant?

    I always just used plain old silicone spray and hosed it down. I put a piece of cardboard between the canvas and lifts though, you don't want that stuff on your tenting.

    Looking to add a 2nd tank

    I agree with rob.mwpropane, I've used these holders before and they're kind of a pain to remove if your going to do it a lot. One of these would be easier I think, and you can use a cover with it if you wish. They sell them everywhere, probably your Canadian tire...

    Upcomming Meal Plans? All ideas welcome

    You reminded me of something my folks used to do when I was younger, not exclusively a camping thing, but a I don't want to cook so here you go type of thing. Just cheese, meat, and crackers. Usually Ritz, salami/pepperoni/ham or whatever was on hand, and a couple different kinds of sliced...

    You mean calories still count when camping 😨??? Dang, that explains some things.

    Upcomming Meal Plans? All ideas welcome

    That's it, crush it a little and cut the bag lengthwise is easiest, not at the seam ends. We use the red Doritos, but any of the little bags you think would be good works. Then add whatever toppings you normally like. We also do chili this way too sometimes, we pour it in little bags of...

    Upcomming Meal Plans? All ideas welcome

    Not really, it's basically microwave popcorn you make on the stove. Comes with its own disposable tin pan and handle, and when it pops it expands the tin foil on top to where it looks like a balloon. I still think it's neat, they usually have them in touristy gas stations and camp stores. I...

    Upcomming Meal Plans? All ideas welcome

    We like to make walking tacos, basic taco fillings but buy little bags of Doritos or whatever chips and just put stuff in there and eat out of the bag. Super easy and quick clean up. We also use pie irons, they're kind of fun and can cook them over a fire. For breakfasts we usually have cold...

    Oh Boy the rot....

    You have to peel back the center vinyl piece out of the two sided channel, there are screws under that. You might be able to reuse it, but a replacement is really cheap. The link is an example of what I'm talking about, there are a few different sizes available so you have to measure to see...

    Virginia to Mt Rushmore 2022 - 4th of July

    It's been a few years since I read the books, I don't really remember. I do remember vividly how she talked up the surveyors house, and how huge it was, and the big pantry stocked with all the food. For one it was surreal to actually walk around in that very house, and on the other hand how...

    Tire Replacement

    I have used recstuff.com in the past, their prices were better than most. Well, at least at that time, I haven't needed tires in a little while.

    Virginia to Mt Rushmore 2022 - 4th of July

    I agree Deadwood is a must go, and while you are up in that area head over to Spearfish too and check out bridal veil falls. The historic fish hatchery over there is fun for kids, you can feed the trout there and tour the place. If you want to go to the middle point of north America north a...

    Virginia to Mt Rushmore 2022 - 4th of July

    There probably won't be fireworks at Mt Rushmore. Since it's federal, the Biden administration has refused South Dakota from having a display the last two years. It had been allowed under the Trump admin. It also can get dry there, so it might not happen for that reason also. I love the Black...

    Just purchased a 1995 Coleman Utah need to seal center seam

    Another vote for eternabond. Surprisingly enough I had a 95 Utah a few years ago and sealed the center. Mine had an AC unit so I took that off first, I wanted to replace the gasket under it. Removed the center strip, layed out the eternabond, and replaced the strip with new screws. After all...
