    Who here has a vintage pop up?

    Mamabean5 I like your Silver Buffalo. You should make it to the Apache round up next August 2013. It would be nice to see your camper in person. Check out the apache group on facebook for details.

    How ugly was your camper? Show me your re-decorated campers!

    Here's the after for the lamp I took an utility lamp and removed the clamp and the aluminum shield. Which left me with a switchable socket and a 6' corded plug. You can buy them already like this but they're more expensive. Anyway, I slid on the lamp shade and added an LED lightbulb. The...

    Pics of my Reflectix Cooler Cover

    Did you make a bottom for inside your cooler? I heard someone compared using reflectix on the ground with the cooler on top vs. nothing on the bottom and there was a significant difference. So there's another place to use some.

    Sick of burgers..

    Our new favorite is walking tacos. I make the taco meat ahead of time and freeze it. Warm up the meat at the campsite, we take individual bags of nacho flavored Doritos and crush them. Layer with taco meat and toppings (cheese, onion, lettuce, tomatoe, sour cream). Yummy, quick, and little mess.

    Racoons...and how they've evolved.

    New to camping I made a lot of mistakes about a week ago. I left the garbage out our first night camping, which in retrospect I realize that we are now a target for all the raccoons in the CG. The next night, I had a little trash but no food in the can so I left it. Well since the raccoons...

    Recommend me a good coffee brand for percolator

    Not a perculator, but I received the Coleman propane drip coffee maker. It is great. Starts right up. I can set it up the night before and just turn on the propane, and push the ignitor. Great coffee, and is very hot. LOVE IT! probably up there in my top 5 camping gadgets.

    Awning Anchors.

    I realize this is an old thread but I love this idea and had some questions. Do you just use the umbrella stands, or do you use other staking as well for the awning i.e. guy lines?

    instant light or regular charcoal

    Where does one find the lump oak, or lump mesquite, I've only noticed Kingsford charcoal. Would I go to a upscale grocery store, or a barbeque retailer for this? I've love to add more flavor using this type of charcoal.

    Apple Bacon BBQ chicken

    I'm gettn the picture. Why wait until tomorrow when you can camp today!!! Would I put the temp at med high heat? Sorry to ask such noob questions. But I've only grilled meats directly on top of the grate never a dutch oven. I have a gauge on my grill that's accurate so what should I aim for?
