Make Ahead Camping Meal Idea - Salad In A Jar

Monday, August 28, 2017

Tex Mex Salad in a Jar

Meals on the go that pack and transport easily are my idea of camping meal perfection.  I like to eat healthy both at home and at the campsite.  Planning ahead can keep everyone on track.  These meals are much more interesting than just a sandwich.  I have nothing against peanut butter and jelly or a just a lunch meat special, but there are so many more options.  And, the right fuel will give you the best energy for a memorable trip!

Pop Up Camper Curtains With Air Flow Vents

Bunk end curtains for a pop up camper with mesh for ventilation.

When I made the curtains for our pop up camper, I made traditional curtains for privacy that I could open and class as needed.  However, if you want to up your game, make your curtains with air flow vents at the top of your bunk ends.  You can close your curtains at night for privacy but still have air flow throughout.

Lake Lurleen State Park near Tuscaloosa, AL

How do you select the parks where you camp?  Do you prefer quiet, low key trips around the campfire?  Or do you need lots of activities and excitement to keep everyone entertained?  You might enjoy a mixture of both.  There is a campground for everyone.  Today I am sharing part one of a two part series on camping facilities.

Every Glamper Needs Bunting - How to Make Your Own

Wednesday, August 9, 2017

Glamper bunting made from left over fabric from our cushions and curtains.

I have had bunting envy for some time now.  Finally, I decided to make a little of my own.  No time like the present when it is hot as Hades outside.  A good afternoon sewing project is just what the weather man ordered.  I can dream about camping in the cool air conditioning of my home.

Airstream Kitchen Backspash - Smart and Stylish Design

Saturday, August 5, 2017

Adding a backsplash that can travel is both practical and aesthetically pleasing.

Carolyn Goodell is once again guest blogging.  She and her husband, Jackson, have remodeled a 1974 Airstream that is currently available for lodging through Air BnB in Livingston, Montana.  Their finished project is stunning and has created a welcome space for guests at The Last Best Camper.

One big perk that comes with owning a camper or RV is that you have a kitchen to utilize rather than depending on coals in a fire or a small camping stove.  This allows for more creativity and flexibility when planning and creating meals while camping, especially when cooking for a family or large group.  However, it also means more messes, more dishes, and more maintenance.  When renovating our Airstream we took one step to help with clean up and to help make our kitchen last longer.

Oak Mountain State Park in Alabama

Camping doesn't have to be an expensive hobby.  You can camp on a budget and have a great time.  Planning deliberately allows you to make the best choices about where to spend your money.  A great view and well deserved down time may be less expensive than you think.  So, how can you camp on the cheap?
