    Meeman-Shelby Forest State Park

    We are looking at staying at this state park on our way back from a beach trip next month. We want to camp in Tennessee, and this one and T.O. Fuller are the closest ones to our route. I'm opting for this one since it's a little further away from Memphis. Any recommendations between the two?

    Best queen bed topper?

    We replaced our factory mattresses with Linenspa 5-inch mattresses we found on Amazon. They are thin enough to fit in our PUP just fine. We lucked out and found the sizes we need, but I would measure your mattress and check the dimensions first. I know an RV queen is sometimes different...

    Robbers' Cave State Park

    We camped at Robber’s Cave over Labor Day weekend and had an amazing time. Because we booked late the only loop with spots left that had electric and water hookups was the Equestrian Campground. It had a large pavilion area for rent and most camp spots included small corrals for people to keep...

    Re-skinning a pop-up

    I would like to see how a wrap turned out if anyone has tried it. Ours is that pebble surface, so I'm not sure how it would go. Our cut vinyl decal looks good on the pebble surface so it might work!

    Re-skinning a pop-up

    I did find a place that sells the shiny .040 aluminum nearby (about 1.5 hours away). I was surprised it's only $130 for a 4'x10' sheet. I'm sure shipping would be expensive, but I didn't think the price of aluminum was bad.

    Re-skinning a pop-up

    We have contemplated that, too. You will have to post a picture when you're finished. I would love to do a different color on ours, but our vinyl is blue and white so I still want it to match when it's popped up.

    Re-skinning a pop-up

    I just pop the bulbs out and stack the cups. It's a good task for the kids when we set up and take down. Lol.

    Oklahoma State Parks improvements

    Since our pop-up doesn't have a bathroom or shower, we try to stay at parks with nicer restroom facilities. I have to brag on our state because they are making the investment on some really nice facilities. Here are some photos of the new air conditioned/heated restrooms that Oklahoma State...

    Eight weeks on the road

    That makes so much more sense! I was racking my brain as to where you stored those. What a cool idea by Parks Canada. Thanks for sharing!

    Eight weeks on the road

    Do these Adirondack chairs fold up? I’ve noticed them in several of your photos.

    Re-skinning a pop-up

    There is a restaurant/bar in our college town called Eskimo Joes and the students always did the lights on their patios with the extra Joes cups . We thought they were perfect for camping, too. Lol.

    Re-skinning a pop-up

    I was at a hot air balloon festival last weekend and I saw these small travel trailers. I loved the shiny aluminum skins and it got me wondering if anyone has ever tried to re-skin their popup with this material? The spec sheet for the camper says it .040 aluminum. There are no screws, so...

    Where would you spend your money?!?

    I have a stock Dometic 13,500 BTU AC in my popup, and it will cool it down 20 degrees in 30 minutes. It will get cold enough to make condensation on the canvas at night. We always run our on full blast because when camping, we're paying for electricity whether we use it or not, lol. So, yes...

    August 2022 - what did you do for your camper?

    Got a new tire cover and added a cut vinyl decal to it, so people know who to cuss when I'm only driving 60-65 instead of 75+ like everyone else in Oklahoma. I also cleaned the condenser coil on my air conditioner after our camping trip last weekend. It felt like it wasn't keeping up with the...

    Greenleaf State Park, Braggs OK

    We recently camped at Greenleaf State Park near Braggs, Okla. We stayed in the Cypress Row loop which had plenty of shade and 30 amp power. The sites have shared water between about 4-5 spot, and no sewer hookups. We were the only people camping in our immediate area so we didn't have to share...

    Any one see any good Prime Day specials?

    I shop Amazon for camping supplies. Over the years I've bought extra 12V outlets, new radial tires, and many other items for my PUP. Is anyone buying anything today on Prime Day? I've been thinking about a Jackery portable power supply: We don't boondock a ton, but it would be beneficial to...

    ISO: Ceiling Mount AC

    Check Facebook Marketplace for units near you. I saw one in my area for $400. This person upgraded to a bigger unit and posted their nearly new Dometic 13,500 BTU unit on there. It’s in Oklahoma if you are close.

    Osage Hills State Park, Pawhuska, Okla.

    You can take Highway 169 all the way from Kansas City to about 30 miles East of Bartlesville. Then cut through to Bartlesville and Pawhuska. That’s a nice drive. Not sure what the best route is going out further West. I would think you’d only be about 5-6 hours from Pawhuska there in Kansas...
