I think it’s a nice experience for the kids because it’s important for them to be in nature and learn to use basic appliances like matches, firewood, water, knives, etc. I want them to grow up sooner so we can have longer trips together.
I think it’s a nice experience for kids too. Trust me, the growing up part will happen soon enough. Maybe too soon In the end….

Good Luck….

Amazing
I built a chuck box last fall which we've used a half dozen times now. It's so much better than the old system of tote-hunting.

And then this Spring I built a camp oven, which has also been fantastic.

I started off just setting the chuck box on the picnic table, but lately we've taken a pair of cheap plastic sawhorses to keep our table space free.

I have upgraded a little! Got a camping kitchen table from Walmart and now have an exterior sink that I hook up where the exterior grill would go. We also got a Blackstone! Love it.

Propane lanterns have no character.

I like old things that still do the job they were designed to do. Coleman began making gas pressure lamps and lanterns some 100 years ago. The newest lantern in this photo is almost 42 years old. The two little ones date back to the mid-50s.

These and a few others give me a great deal of pleasure, and they're are good conversation starters. If that's not logical, so be it.
