    Finding peace, quiet and nature!

    I bought a generator last year to help on the longer trips we sometimes do. The building biggest thing I had to have in a generator, is it must be quiet. I don’t like the noise it makes and I only run it for short times within acceptable hours. Never at night. It’s not big enough to run out A/C...

    What's in your toolbox?

    I have a 12” level that I set on the countertop when leveling. Plus it fits in my tool box which always follows me camping. I thought about getting a set that you attach to the outside of the camper, but haven’t gotten around to it.

    What's in your toolbox?

    I do prepare a tool box for all my camping trips. It doesn’t matter the length of the trip. I bring most of what has been listed in previous posts. Minus the drill press. (Not sure I have the room) It also depends if where we are going has full hook ups or we’re dry camping. I have a small...

    Pulling kids out of school

    I would be honored to pull my camper along side yours. Thank you for your rant.

    Pulling kids out of school

    Every place and everything can be a learning experience. I went through the public school system many, many years ago. My wife and I decided when we had kids that they would be home schooled. Our oldest graduated from being home schooled and now has a great career that he loves and is making...

    Pulling kids out of school

    My kids are home schooled, so camping is sort of like being in school, as there is much to explore and learn about. As well as the travel to the destination.

    May 2021 - what did you do for your camper?

    I’ll be outside in about an hour to uncover and open the camper. Finally have a dry and calm day off of work to do this. Washing the camper before opening. Planing on installing a tongue mounted bike rack. Perhaps today unless I discover any major problems.

    Anyone know this camper? Coleman LX1701

    I've never seen one of those. Looks nice.

    Who's ready?

    My camper has almost 3 feet of snow in front of it right now while it’s parked in my driveway. Also, I think I’d kill myself trying to get the cover off it with all the snow on top.

    Federal Compliance Sticker

    When we bought our 05 Starcraft hybrid a couple of years ago, one of the first things I noticed was the federal sticker was in the middle of a slightly damaged area on the trailer. While doing the repair, I ended up eliminating the sticker. It couldn’t be saved. So, I contacted Starcraft, or...

    Cell Phone Carriers

    I’ve had them just over a month, and I haven’t had any issues. I did have to get ahold of customer service when I was activating my new phone. The entire process took about 10 minutes once the person talked me through it. ( I made a mistake when setting up my phone) They were able to fix my...

    Cell Phone Carriers

    My sister-in-law left AT&T for Visible for the same reason. She has 6 phones and the prices were just too much.

    Cell Phone Carriers

    We had Verizon years ago. We left them due to the high cost. We switched to Sprint with the promise we would save money. That didn’t happen, and to top it off, we had no service at our house. With the contract now up we had heard of a fairly new company called Visible. They are a part of Verizon...

    Clueless campers

    I did the same thing last year on one of our trips. One a couple of the trees in our site we found ropes still attatched to the nails and screws left from before. Judging by the ropes, they had been there for quite a while.

    Clueless campers

    Very well put. On one of out trips last year, the site we had choosen was not kept so well. My two girls asked why I was cleaning it up, and I told them the same thing you said. My father told me to leave the place the same way, or better than the way you found it. It has stuck with me all these...
