    End of summer NV rally

    Hello, I will be doing an end of summer season camp out at Davis creek campground. It will be the weekend after Labor Day so September 9-11. I will be at campsite #27. While there are rv spots a good amount of spots can accommodate a pop up but require a back in. The sites I have found can fit a...

    Who's still camping?

    Yeah I mean it’s at the bottom of that mountain range. They didn’t have a weather app so luckily I left yesterday. Woke up to chain controls from the campground to home.

    Who's still camping?

    My boyfriend won’t let me sleep with the sleeping bag in the bed. I miss it sometimes. Going camping this weekend at Davis creek camp ground since there isn’t snow in the ground.

    Update axle/clearance

    I have a 1994 coleman destiny pop up camper that I’m struggling to find an axle solution for. My axle is only 2 inches in diameter and I haven’t been able to find a axle flip kit. There are only some hefty priced options like replacing the axle or going full axle free. While I want the axle free...

    1994 Coleman renovation

    Well I bought a 1994 Coleman destiny. I had never towed, owned a trailer let alone camp in one alone. I’ve been dreaming of one day being able to have a trailer and was just so happy to have my own. I’m single and while I had help i did a significant amount myself. I changed a lot of stuff but...

    What changes when your dog comes camping?

    My dog has nothing really change... he doesn’t use a kennel and is pretty spoiled with having an indoor and outdoor bed when we camp. I got a leash that has a handle that can be unbuckled and buckled around things. So I can attach him to stuff no matter where we go from kayak to camping chair. I...

    Help backing up

    I did the bus ones at my local high school. I park it at a 90 degree angle so getting that down pretty well. Still not perfectly straight but I don’t really care about that. It’s small enough that I can fit in about anywhere being crooked.

    Help backing up

    Do you find a i actually ask for help a lot. I remodeled my camper mostly by myself but did a lot of research. I know when I can’t do something and will ask for help when I need it. I agree we need to all help each other. I just didn’t expect some stranger who didn’t even talk to me for five...

    Help backing up

    That’s a scary story! I grew up hearing about how my grandma had to go in the middle of the night and had a face to face encounter with a grizzly in Yellowstone. So I bought a porta potty for my trailer real quick. Totally worth it! the other part of having a gun is all the state regulations. I...

    Help backing up

    I would probably have given him the keys in that scenario as well!

    Help backing up

    I had never towed a trailer before February so you at least have that. I practiced in a high school parking lot where the buses park and I will probably still take a few tries. Since I find a lot of spots are at an angle I choose to do those. I have bear spray cause you can use it on animals and...

    Help backing up

    You got this! Yeah it’s definitely an adjustment to get used to. I have a dog which helps a lot. I try to invite people to come with me. There are also lots of women camping groups. I also don’t do too many days alone since if I don’t talk to someone everyday I can get really sad.

    Help backing up

    I actually watched someone on YouTube explain the whole thing with a lego tractor and a toy steering wheel. It made so much sense once they did that.

    Help backing up

    Yeah the back up camera definitely was something I wanted. I have to back up onto two single tire ramps onto a curb. I just wasn’t comfortable being on a busy road trying to attempt to do that without the camera since I am so new. Thank you for the “you go girl” I appreciate it! I spent a few...

    Help backing up

    I had just gotten there. It was middle of the afternoon. Yes I got out after I initially started in the spot so that I could get appropriate distance and understanding of the site. But I had been there for like 2 minutes before I had two people come over to “help” me back up my trailer. Then I...
