    A little backyard practice

    It’s been a while since I have messed with my cast iron, roughly 4-5 years to be exact. I finally pulled the tote out of the basement of the beast and thought “these need to be cleaned up and reseasoned”. Then I thought “since they are out.......”. Dutch oven apple cobbler is really yummy!

    Dark is not necessarily so dark, but it is definitely good

    Well, with my presence being fairly scarce over the past year + and some folks asking where I went and what I've been up to I thought I would give a little official update. I went away for a while due to personal reasons but during that time, roughly mid September, we went "dark" as well. I...

    what might cause this to happen?

    So this guy in the Jeep rear ends someone and destroys the other persons car about an hour ago and 2 blocks away. Then, after the cops release him he does this 2 blocks later. Anyone wanna take a stab at what the root cause of this string of unfortunate events is?

    What is it called?

    What are the things called that you put on your tow vehicle roof to redirect the air over the trailer? I was thinking a deflector or air dam, but coming up with blanks on searches.

    RIP JungleJim

    It is with great sadness that I announce the sudden passing of a long time member of the portal, and someone that although was much closer to me than I realized over the years I had just begun talking to in recent weeks. We have had many great "conversations" and I was very much looking forward...

    battery powering furnace

    Is it realistic to expect the battery to power the furnace and fridge (on propane) overnight on a b oondocking trip? Would a gel cell theoretically last longer than a standard battery?

    Oxygen Sensor replacement

    Not exactly camping related but does anyone have any tips or tricks to make a manifold mounted Oxygen sensor replacement go smoothly? This is something I have always shied away from but feel the need to attempt this time due to the price everyone else wants to charge to do the job

    Interior LED lighting

    So I'm kicking around the idea of replacing the lights, or at least a couple of them, inside the Roo-ster with LED's. My question is, are there replacement "bulbs" that you can put in the existing fixtures or do you have to replace the entire fixture? All I am seeing is the entire fixtures...
