Spring Camping Playlist 2019

Friday, April 19, 2019


Spring camping season is officially here, and if you are headed to the campground this weekend, I have put together a playlist to get you going.  As a child, I spent a lot of time riding back roads and listening to old school country music.  Every spring I always find myself back in south Mississippi in the familiar places and spaces that I once called home. 

Camp Oven Comparison - Dutch Oven vs. The Coleman Camp Oven

Monday, April 15, 2019

I've done everything from bread to enchiladas in our Dutch oven.

The first camping gift that my husband gave me was a Lodge Dutch Oven.  I wanted something that I could use for everything.  This piece has lived up to all of its expectations.  Last year, I decided to give the Coleman Camp Oven a try.  Not because I don't love my Dutch Oven.  I just don't always want to heat up charcoal for cooking first thing in the morning if I want to bake something.  I wanted to simplify my cooking process, and I felt like the Coleman Camp Oven would do this.  If you are evaluating camp kitchen gear for a small outdoor setup, this comparison could help you.

Camping Easter Menu Ideas for a Brunch

Friday, April 12, 2019

Last year, we camped at Desoto State Park in Alabama for Easter.  It was chilly, but we still enjoyed Easter brunch.
If you are planning to camp for Easter, why not plan a holiday brunch for that weekend?  This works to schedule a meal for those like breakfast foods but won't wake up early for breakfast.  Plus, brunch is that leisurely "start the day anytime I please on a holiday weekend" kind of way.  After all, isn't that what holiday weekends are all about?  Here are some ideas to help plan a simple holiday meal with some of the traditional touches with twists to make it camping friendly.

Hard Side Cooler Comparison - The Great Cooler Debate

Monday, April 8, 2019

Yeti may be at the top of your list and the top of the pricing model, but is it the best cooler for you?  Before you buy, do your homework.
We have been debating a new cooler purchase for some time now.  It is easy to find recreational coolers that boast of long-standing ice retention, rugged construction, and long term reliability.  Not all coolers are made alike, and how do we tell them apart?  I've done quite a bit of research on this quest to find the right cooler for our family camping excursions, and maybe this can help you!

Replace Your Bag Awning on Your Pop Up Camper

Monday, April 1, 2019

Our new awning is a Shade Maker awning.  It is similar in color to the original one but is a marked improvement in the overall quality.
Replacing your bag awning for a pop-up camper may be more cost-effective than you think.  If you have an older pop-up camper with failing parts, consider that the cost to replace a basic bag awning could be only slightly more than the cost of purchasing parts to repair an older awning.  We repaired our original awning for half of what it cost for us to replace our awning.
