Laundry Sucks………or is that soaks?

I hate public laundromats. I really do, they suck.  Even some of the campgrounds have lousy laundromats. Sadly, it is what it is when you go camping/RVing, but………..  I found a product called Soak.  At first, I thought this is another gimmick product out there.  I purchased a small…

Hooking Up – How we hook up our Airstream Basecamp

Hooking up your Airstream (or trailer) is simply following a routine process and herein lies the danger. Routine is dangerous because we “ASSUME” we haven’t missed a step and note I emphasized the word assume. We do it the same was every time, but…

Adding A Dyson Vacuum To Our Airstream Basecamp – We Made Another Change

What do camping, hiking, biking, and an Airstream all have in common?  Dirt!!! Who knew that whenever you walk into your trailer you track in dirt. You could just leave your shoes in the vestibule, sure if you put the side tent up. But…

We Made Some Changes To Our Basecamp – Part 2 (You Have To Have A TV, Right?)

The quiet sunset, cool dry weather, a campfire, beverage of choice and a good book. Wow, this looks great on paper and even better in the travel blogs. And this is why we bought the Basecamp. To get outdoors and commune with nature. But…

We Made Some Changes – Part 1

Whenever you buy a new home whether that be a Mega-Mansion, Alice (our first Airstream, a 2013 International Serenity 30W) or something like our new on the road home – The Airstream Basecamp; the first thing you do is change it!!! Why would we…

One Idiots Guide To The Basecamp Truma System

It is supposed to drop down to 30° on the Jersey shore tonight and since we haven’t taken the Basecamp up to have it winterized I thought I would give a quick demo on how to use the Truma system. Mind you this is…

It Started With A Tickle

–Note: The following was written while on steroids, which I am sure everyone will see I don’t handle well (lol)– It started with a tickle, turned into swollen eyes and Jimmy Durante nose. What did? My FACE!!! I have never had an allergic reaction…

Did You Just Run Out Of Propane?

Has your mouth ever been watering while you are in the middle of that batch of bar-b-que chicken or a nice juicy steak and your propane tank runs out? Or maybe you found that perfect camping spot, and in the middle of the night…

How We Clean Our Firedisc

Last week we showed how cooking with the Firedisc if different from using a typical BBQ; cleaning it is different too.  We are all used to pulling the food off our grill and cranking up the heat to burn off the leav’ns before hitting…

Choosing A Brake Controller

Charlene gave me the task of finding the right brake controller for our new truck and Airstream.  After looking at various Brake Controllers from companies like Tekonsha, Draw-Tite, and Hopkins I decided to go with the Autowbrake system for the 2019 Honda Ridgeline and…

Seven (7) Months Grey

I checked my date book to see when my last hair color appointment was, February 16, 2018 at 9:30am…….seven months without hair color.  I never thought I would make it, let alone this far.  I thought I might cave and get a touch-up or…

Bye-Bye Alice the Airstream

Colonial Airstream came this past Wednesday to pick up Alice.  It was hard to see her go.  She has been our home for two years.  She has taken us to incredible places and on some great adventures.  She had many upgrades and modifications to her.  She was well used…
