Get Out Camping & Hiking

It's time to just get out.

Texas Beef on Texas Toast

So let’s say you aren’t exactly in Texas and you aren’t quite sure what makes toast Texan either. I’m here to tell you now that it doesn’t matter. This medley makes Iceland feel like Texas and will have you thinking everything (including your belly) is getting bigger with every bite.

It may sound odd, but this combination of deli-sliced beef, thick bread, mustard, green peppers and a few seasonings creates quite good eats.

Sausage Peppered Biscuit Breakfast

While I usually run from anything that requires bring special equipment to camp, this is good enough to make an exception. We’ll just have to try some different uses for the Lodge cast iron biscuit pan. Thanks to the Jelly Toast Blog for this awesome recipe. Continue reading “Sausage Peppered Biscuit Breakfast”

French Breakfast Puffs for Pie Iron

Here is a good one. I a bit different than typical sandwiches, this is a puffy pastry that tastes a bit like a donut. It will be a welcome change of pace for a breakfast or even a snack. It is super easy, but be careful with the heat. You want a delicate browning and with a hot fire, you can easily burn these.

Campground Review: KOA Buckeye Lake

Review of KOA Buckeye Lake

KOA Buckeye Lake

We headed west for a quick weekend with the Aliner in tow. The weekend before, a quick search located a campground about 40 minutes east of Columbus, our final destination for Saturday. KOA Buckeye Lake seemed to sit right off of I-70, accessible easily, as we would possibly arrive after dark and the farm roads in eastern Ohio can be curvy and dark.

Modifying the A-Liner Bed…Again

A few years ago, we outfitted our A-liner bed with a foam mattress topper and cover. Well, a few years have past and, after a few restless nights, one of us decided that it was time for another revamp. We headed to Ikea and invested in the Sultan Hanestad mattress. This comes rolled.

Campground Review: Top O’ the Caves near Hocking Hills, Ohio

In mid June, we headed west – destination: Hocking Hills, Ohio. First timers, we had only heard stories of the caves and hills of this region. We needed to see for ourselves. Living in Pittsburgh, we found it hard to believe that Ohio actually had the type of topography described by visitors instead of the plains that we tended to see miles before us just before crossing the Pennsylvania border.

Campfire Dutch Oven Beef & Beer Stew

This was adapted from a Marlboro cookbook that I have for campfire cooking. To make it easy, pack portioned spice mixes at home, label them, and bring them all together in one little cup to easily add to the stew without measuring. Worcestershire sauce can be measured and portioned for travel as well.
