The How To’s that we wish we knew.

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…

TIBS Takes A Hobby To The Next Level

It all started with six little words “you know I used to loom”. Trust me when I say “if I’d had only known…. (lol)”. In the couple months since those six fateful words were uttered my life has changed. And now that the first…

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…

Having Fun With Leftover Halloween Tortilla Chips

Charlene asks “what do you want for dinner” my response of let’s have spaghetti was answered by “these pork chops need to be cooked before they go bad”. Okay, decision made, pork chops it is. I love screwing around with dinner and trying something…

Too Windy To Cook Outside?

Have you ever wanted to get outside and throw something on your Firedisc (or grill – btw, time to upgrade) only to have the wind stop you? Maybe the answer is the “Wind Helmet” . The short video below shows the difference with and…

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…

What’s on the Firedisc? Is that Fried Rice?

I do enjoy my fried rice and have tried many times to figure it out. Then I heard two tips. First use fresh ingredients and second use freshly made short grain sticky rice. I’m getting closer but I still haven’t found the pot of…

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…

Chicken Parm or Fried Chicken

Over the years I have never been able to make good “fried chicken”. Sure I have pounded a breast flat and covered them in bread crumbs for a pan fry or lemon pepper seasoning. Maybe even turned them into pinwheels, but fried chicken has…

Food On The Appalachian Trail – Our 2018 Flip Flop Start and Going Forward

Many of you know that Charlene, aka “TIBS”, broke her foot about 450 miles into our Flip-Flop.  As we get within six months of stepping off again it’s time to look back at what we did and how it worked.  For meals on the…

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…
