New Harmony Indiana

It’s Fall.  The heat of the nineties has finally broken and given way to temperatures twenty degrees cooler.  Ahhh…. Fall and early Winter are my favorite camping and touring seasons.  The fires aren’t wasted in sweltering heat, the crowds are gone, the trees are closing up season while crickets and katydids sing away the last […]

Ideas, hooks and potential

These are the hooks we currently use to hang things on the carpeted walls (just be careful to only hang super lightweight objects on the carpeting –you don’t want the carpet to pull away from the walls):But I’m always looking for new ways to hang lightweight objects on the carpet or fiberglass and I’m perpetually on […]

Protecting the Egg from Theft

Seems like everyday now I see notice of another stolen trailer on Facebook.  Given the high re-sale value of the Egg category and the current super popularity of campers, our Eggs are all more appealing to thieves. What’s to be done??  Well, as one who has had more than her share of home break-ins, car […]

More Kitchen Helpers–Drying Rack

Sorting through what works verses what works better (and always editing for storage and weight) we have gone through two different iterations on dish drying aparatus. The first was a roll out rack that fully expanded to cover the sink.  This worked great for dishes washed outside and brought in to air dry overnight and […]

Securing the Electric for Towing

Well, we were tired one night and pulled a freshman mistake while unhitching […]

Waterproof Camera Bag

A quick product testimonial here on a waterproof camera bag. We went to our favorite lake this past weekend and played with our dogs in the water.  I wanted to bring a camera but none of ours are waterproof.  My Hub suggested we use my sister’s old IPhone –since we bring it for audiobooks anyway. […]

The Essential Dog Camping Kit

We travel with a 22lb Corgi and a 52lb Bassador.  They light up our camping travels and bring us so much joy.  They need their own gear, too.  This is what we consider essential. A cable or soft flat long lead to string between two trees or poles onto which you can thread a long […]
