Get Out Camping & Hiking

It's time to just get out.

Stuffed French Toast Mountain Pie

Stuffed French Toast Mountain Pie

This recipe was unbelievable…something you’d expect in a restaurant, not camping. This entry was a hands down breakfast winner that you must certainly try. And, if you have leftovers, simply cook it up in single slices and top with the banana, walnuts and either syrup or confectioner sugar.

Gas Drilling in Pennsylvania State parks and forests

Corbett sees no more leases for gas drilling in PA’s state parks, forests

Written by Pittsburgh Post-Gazette on Tuesday, 16 October 2012 10:19 am.

HARRISBURG — State officials are not considering leasing any additional acres of state forestland or parks for gas drilling, Gov. Tom Corbett told reporters Monday.

Asked about rumors that have circulated since John Norbeck was dismissed as state parks director earlier this month, Mr. Corbett vigorously denied that state parks soon could see drilling activity

Equipment Review: SunRight Gas-Fired Infra-Red Tank Top Heater

By Mr. Heater

After looking at the weather forecast for the week before our last camping trip, we thought the evening would be a bit cold in the screenhouse while we played games (something we do for hours on every camping trip). We like to sit outside late and don’t want the temperature to force us into the Aliner. Continue reading “Equipment Review: SunRight Gas-Fired Infra-Red Tank Top Heater”

Equipment Review: Mountain Pie Iron

Mountain Pie Iron, C. Palmer Mfg.

We have used many, many different mountain pie makers – double ones, fluted ones, round ones, and we were recently even gifted with a panini maker one. For awhile, we took them all to camp to keep everyone cooking. But, we noticed that people would wait to use a certain one (or two, because we had two of the same model). And, they were our favorites as well. Continue reading “Equipment Review: Mountain Pie Iron”

Trail Review: Rhododendron Trail at Trough Creek State Park

Trough Creek State Park, Rhododendron Trail

I love Trough Creek State Park. If you aren’t from Central Pennsylvania, chances are slim that you’ve ever heard of it. It is an unknown gem. A stunning, quiet example of Pennsylvania’s beauty. When I go there, I am awed by its splendor. I may sound dramatic, but I truly love every rock, tree, and rhododendron on its hills. So, keep my opinion in mind when you hear me say anything about Trough Creek. I am extremely biased. Continue reading “Trail Review: Rhododendron Trail at Trough Creek State Park”

Texas Sheet Cake

Let’s talk about the obvious. This is not a recipe that you make at camp. No, this chocolate delight is a make-at-home and throw in the car prepared kind of thing. The only thing that suits it for camping is that EVERYONE demands it. A few years ago, I tried a different dessert. A bar-type version of a camping classic. You know, the one that starts with s’m. I can’t say it. That trip I was badgered endlessly with the question, “What was wrong with the chocolate cake?” “I really could go for Texas Sheet Cake.”

The First Official Mountain Pie Cook-Off

The First Official Mountain Pie Cook-Off – 2012

It happened. The three of us that made it camping came loaded up with three recipes each for mountain pies and each night we prepped, cooked, and shared our entries into the mountain pie cook-off. Continue reading “The First Official Mountain Pie Cook-Off”

Trail Review: Shenango River Trail

Shenango River Trail

Not seeing too many options on our searches before reaching the Shenango River Recreation Area, we asked the ranger that stopped by our site about hiking. He kind of chuckled and responded with a statement that was translated to, “You want to hike? Here?” He went onto to explain that the trails were pretty unkept and he could not guarantee the condition of them, but would come back with a map. That he did. We went out to see for ourselves.

Have meat. Will camp.

Camp Marinades Perfect for Travel

When we take longer camping trips, we cook. Nothing is better than a great meal after a day outside. But meat and marinades were made for one another. I mix them at home and put them in Mason jars. They don’t leak and are easy to carry…besides, prefer glass to plastic when the base is acidic. Continue reading “Have meat. Will camp.”
