I think I alluded to my (obsession) love for cast iron in a past post about camp kitchen cookware. Cast iron is so amazing, pieces are often passed down through family generations; I know of one family who still has and uses a cast iron frying pan their ancestors immigrated with in the late 1800’s. I’ve only had mine for 10 years; my mother has a set of cast iron from when her mother was a child. Although it is usually quite heavy (it’s made of iron after all), it...[More]

There is nothing worse than knowing you have something for your next trip but not knowing where it is. There are many ways to organize all those travel guides, fliers, magazines etc. that you’ve collected so you can find them for your next trip.My personal preference is to sort them by state and/or regional location, and then put each group into a file folder. Each folder goes into a file box or cabinet.When you want to start planning your next trip just locate that area’s folder and flip through it....[More]

I recently took a 1,200-mile roadtrip with a friend starting in Las Vegas and traveling to Albuquerque. We began our trip at a local grocery store to pick up the majority of our groceries; our plan was to use a camp stove to make most of our meals, cutting down on travel costs. We took the new bridge which bypasses the Hoover Dam; it shaved 30 minutes off of our drive and is two lanes of 65mph traffic. The bridge also cuts the curvy roads out of the trip and...[More]

Unless you intend to eat every meal at a restaurant during your camping trip, you are going to need a decent set of cookware to prepare your meals. There are many kinds of pots and pans in the camping gear market; it’s important to find the pieces that best suit your needs. You need to be careful which set you buy; many of today’s camp cookware sets are made of flimsy material and won’t hold up to more than one or two camping trips at best. I will cover a...[More]

Let’s be sure we all agree upon what is considered a “utensil”. In my mind, utensils are everything (except knives, which get a post of their own) that we cook and eat with. Spoons, forks, spatulas, etc…these are utensils. Ok, now that we’ve covered that….Scott, our glorious boss at RoadCeo, uses a tool box keep all his cooking utensils in. Yes, a toolbox. I’ve also seen people who use tackle boxes the same way. You can tell by looking at this picture Scott carries a wide variety of utensils, including...[More]

On Monday I covered packing lists for the vehicle, personal gear and personal survival. Let’s now get into our base camp gear, camp cooking gear, family/group first aid and fun stuff.Base Camp Gear:· Tents: We usually bring three tents. Two are for sleeping (The kids get their own tent. This helps to give them a bit of independence and some extra responsibility – they are in charge of tent upkeep.), and the third is a screen tent to enclose our kitchen/dining area. We usually string up mini holiday lights...[More]

Preparation is essential for any outdoor adventure. Not having needed equipment and supplies can really put a damper on a potentially great trip.My family keeps checklists for packing easy and preparation for each trip we take - whether camping or just a road trip - not only does this practice keep us organized, it also helps us keep up with any supplies that need to be refilled or replaced. Your family's camping lists will probably differ from ours in ways and you may want to add or subtract some things,...[More]

Are your campers afraid of getting their hands dirty? Are your campers too saucy for camping? That is a real dilemma since camping is one of the major and important activities when you’re a scout. It teaches you a lot of things such as surviving in the wilderness with few available tools, socializing, teamwork, and a lot more. But how could you initiate a camping activity if your campers are like the ones I’ve mentioned? They’re too stuck up with their city life to give it up and try living...[More]

Writing on the road is more complicated than some might think. In fact, work of any kind for me at least proves time and time again to not be productive. Even with the use of my laptop, and internet connectivity at various lodging places, my work seems to always get put off until I get home. The vicious circle rears its head again when home means unpacking, laundry, pay bills, resubscribe to the newspaper put on hold, and a myriad of other reasons or excuses. Though I am a...[More]

Denver, Colorado My digital camera does not stop taking snapshots of the places that are so mezmorizing, to experience it through the camera lens does not do it justice. Take the time to visit the country, and see the sights of nature, the history, the geology that makes up this country. Eat the local cuisine, and talk to the local peeps to understand the culture and history of where they're from. Famous places, interesting people, the photos are not just about a sight or a place, it is the...[More]

Then there is the manner of the self-punishment that we inflict upon ourselves that we mask as something like it being a need, responsibility, etc. This can be a point that is easily argued, but hear me out first. As I was in deep prayer, I was directed to look towards my bags and thought of the weight, for they are very heavy. I am a large person who can carry the load, but as I was in prayer it was then I understood that was punishing myself by carrying...[More]

The square knot is also know as the the reef knot. I have also hear it commonly refereed to as the “joining” or “friendship” knot. It is a simple knot, most commonly used to join two ropes of the same size together. However, The International Guild of Knot Tyers warns that this knot should never be used to join two ropes together. A sheet bend should be used instead. Knotting authority Clifford Ashley claimed that misused square knots has caused more deaths and injuries than all other knots combined.The square...[More]
