Get Out Camping & Hiking

It's time to just get out.

The Drinking Water Problem

Let me start by saying we don’t use our sink in the A-liner. It is small and since we live in a climate the freezes, we don’t find it worth the extra work it takes to drain in for the off-season. For clean water, we look elsewhere.

In the past, we would stock up on gallon-sized jugs of water from Costco before camping to ensure that we would have clean water for just about everything, from filling the dogs’ water bowls to cleaning dishes. These took up considerable space in the vehicle and also created bulky trash. But you need clean water.

Twin Knobs Campground Review

On our way home from Tennessee after watching the eclipse, we headed north into Kentucky and stopped for the night at Twin Knobs Campground. We were sorry we were only there for one night. It was not crowded and the sites were wooded and clean.

Twin Knobs sits amidst the Daniel Boone National Forest, north west of Lexington, Kentucky of KY-801.

After a very long drive we arrived at Davy Crockett Campground, our home for then next  couple nights as we visited to take in the eclipse. Located in Crossville, Tennessee, this campground is about halfway between Nashville and Knoxville.

The campground was very crowded that weekend and they had people packed in where they could.

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.

KOA Buckeye Lake Campground Review

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.
