    Hot water for dish washing?

    Yes, its two years old, but I'm still here. Since this post, we just started heating a pot of water on the stove or campfire. Easy peasy. Andy

    camping near trains

    Mounds State Park in Anderson Indiana. We stayed there a couple of nights in 2019, and several trains came through during the night. The tracks are just outside the park, but still plenty loud. Andy

    Camco travel toilet, "does anyone have one"?

    We have considered one of those Camco toilets, but we have gotten along very well with the luggable loo and the Double Doody bags. It works great for the three of us. The downside is that finding replacement bags has been tough lately. Everyone seems to be out of stock.

    Kohler-Andrae State Park

    We stayed at Kohler-Andrae last weekend. Heavily wooded sites with good spacing. Park is just south of Sheboygan along Lake Michigan, with beautiful beaches and sand dunes. Expect to hear the dull roar of the waves throughout much of the campground on a windy day, which is not unpleasant at all...

    When did you switch to a pup

    My birth family did not camp, but I began camping in the early 70s as a cub scout in a little pup tent and a sleeping bag.

    the one thing i hate about my popup

    I love our popup, except for two things- the propane refrigerator works poorly (despite being perfectly level and maintained), and the pup exterior door likes to open by itself during the night, due to frame flexing.
