Last trip out I was cooking on the stove outside when a seasoned gentleman explained to me that I was wasting my money. "You pay for full hook-up and then just run the lights/radio for two maybe three hours. You use your propane to cook. Why you burning your cash?" The method to his thought was, buy an electric griddle or hot plate to cook on at serviced campgrounds and use the electricity you're paying for and save the gas for when your out in the wilds. Being new to this game I thought about that a minute so I'm curious if others are of the same mindset.
