    New style of camping for me - working while camping

    So last year I decided I wanted to camp a bit longer in the season and have a bit more comfort so I made the transition from the hybrid to a full side all season camper. Fast forward to May this year I got let go from my job, which turned out to be a blessing in disguise as I was out of work...

    The Ultraskiff!

    There's a lot of ideas/questions for hauling boats on here so check out this new portable "boat". This to me looks more appealing than a blow up of any kind and can roll anywhere/be transported upright in the truck. It's also relatively affordable.

    Ready for football

    Well since my local NBC affiliate and direct tv are in a pissing contest and blocked out on my satellite since yesterday (great timing) I guess I'll be watching the game in the camper tonight on anteanna. I want to see if they show the stadium with all the goodell clown towels. Hope they get...

    First Change to Signature - New TV

    Well, I had to update my signature to include my new TV. I traded the Explorer in for an Expedition. That's because I will be changing my signature again any day now with another kid in the family. We haven't found out what we are having so I can't update yet. We realized that with 4 kids...

    The space of a TT combo'd with a PUP

    I've never seen this option before. How about a toy hauler that has the back part of the roof open up like a PUP and into a loft room? Maybe a maintenance headache but possibly a compromise for those that love the open air of canvass with the amenities of a TT. Video is old...

    Finally Pulled the Trigger - 21TQX

    Well after our annual trial trip in the yard to prep the PUP and my wife strongly suggesting it's time for a bigger camper - we brought home our NTU 2013 Coachmen Freedom Express 21TQX. I must say that I am very happy with the decision. Obviously the interior space is fantastic. I has...

    Looking for info: Burt Lake - Michigan

    So I have to do a machine buyoff in Harbor Springs in a few weeks. I see that Burt Lake is not too far away and seems to be a decent size lake with a park attached. Since that is my last name I wanted to check it out and maybe stop by the visitor center or camp store and get some souvenirs for...

    Impromptu Camp Driveway scratched the itch

    Well I scouted out a new campground for us on Saturday and I was kicking myself for not hitching up the pup. I mentioned it to the wife before we left and she didn't have it packed... When we got home I picked up sticks around the yard and had some brush that accumulated over the winter so I...

    Looks like Camping World is buying out all 3 Tom Raper locations. Bought mine at Tom Raper, will be tough to buy my next one at Camping World I think. Wasn't impressed at the one in Greenwood...

    Camping at races

    So I'm kicking around possibly making a long weekend at a race next year. Those of you who have done it what is the experience? Any to avoid? I'm open to more than just Nascar. I'm thinking the indycars and mid-Ohio - can you see racing from your spot? Bristol would be another possibility...

    Light Pollution

    I know it was labor day camping but what's up with all the lights? I had seasoned campers on either side of me this weekend and were good neighbors otherwise but their lights were awful. One had a stage type LED sitting under their step into the camper. The other had a lantern that they...

    Renewed faith in parenting

    I went to a state park pool this weekend. I was standing in line for the concessions to get my kids a piece of candy. There was a group of 5 kids in front of me. One boy about 10 seemed to be a bully. He slugged (hard hit) what I'm assuming his little sister about 7 in the shoulder for...
