Wow - Slow Cooker without Electricity!

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 - 



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!

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!

step by step pictures & info on how I built my kayak rack

UPDATE - After 10,000 miles at highway speeds, the kayak rack has had no problems. I did just replace the bottom boards because they warped a little from being stored outside, but it was a simple job. 

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 as shown in the photo above.

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.

We even carry a Hobie Tandem Outfitter Kayak this way and still get great gas mileage.
