Wow - Slow Cooker without Electricity! Great Christmas Gift!

We are planning a long camping trip through the National Parks this coming spring. I can't wait! It's going to be fantastic! The only not-so-fantastic part is that National Parks don't have electricity and water hook-ups. 

I have been looking for a "Thermal Pot" for a long time. That way I can cook a slow cooker meal without needing electrical hook-ups. They are normally over $100, $150 or even more. This is why I don't have one LOL.  Well, the other day I stumbled across this - 



(Make sure you use that link because Amazon has the same model for $79 under another listing and that is what came up in my search - so if it's not $35, keep looking.)

So, my son bought it for me for Christmas.
Isn't he nice?

To use a thermal pot, you heat the ingredients up to boiling and pour them in. Close tightly and let sit for 3-8 hours. Everything will cook up nicely because it is heavily insulated. It's also great to transport hot food to a tail-gating party or get-together.

If you have any experience with these, or have good recipes, please let me know in the comment section. 

I'll let you know how it works when we get a chance to use it.

Now go play outside!

Replaced My Dinette with a Couch and Storage Bins! Step-by-Step Part 2

 First I have to tell you about the really neat little thermal pot I just got. Usually they are over $100, but this one has 4 1/2 stars on Amazon and is only $35! Whooo hoo! Just thought you'd like to know. (If you want to know more about thermal cookers - here's a post)

It's a 5 Liter Thermal Pot that gets 4 1/2 stars on Amazon and is $35!! (if you appreciate my blog, please buy it through this affiliate link, I will appreciate you.)

Ok, now about that couch - 


This is how the couch turned out. It takes up so much less room and is sooo comfy! It has been road-tested - we have used it for 2 years, and with trips up to 80 days long and haven't had any problems.


You wouldn't believe how much stuff fits in the boxes and is so easily accessible!

This single box holds
a window fan, 
a clip-on fan, 
a purifying air filter, 
a ceramic heater,
a battery powered light & fan,
 and probably a couple other things.

And this is how I did it.

Finding Hidden Storage



I love finding new storage in my tiny camper! If you've been following my blog, you know that I have practically every space in use, even opening walls to make shelving and installing a washing machine. Yep, this tiny trailer has a wonderful, stainless steel drum haier washing machine (If you appreciate my blog, I would appreciate it if you went through this affiliate link )

How I built my Kayak Rack!

I finally built a kayak rack, and it's been an unqualified success. I've had a lot of people ask how I did it -  I initially built 2 racks, one for each end of the kayaks like so:


But I found that instead of 15 MPG towing the camper, we got 9 MPG when we had the kayaks over the cab of the truck.
