    New Members.

    Is there a database of new members this year. I am guessing there has been more new members this past year than anytime in the past. The campgrounds here both organized and dispersed have been full almost every weekend this past summer.

    I was on a thread where a member was hesitant to mention that he carried a firearm while camping for fear of being censored. Is this true?

    altitude limit

    Has anyone used their fridge at 10,000 feet or higher? Seems it would take longer to cool. Have used mine at 8500 with no problem but here at the South end of the Rockies high altitude camping is what we do.
