I carry my canoe on top of my k2500 suburban using Thule racks, canoe load bar ends, and use a oak orchard canoe and kayak roller.

My first canoe was just above big box sellable, poly construction, and 80 pounds: Old Town Guide 147.   It was fine for lakes but a bear to paddle: 38" beam and flat bottom aka barge.

My next canoe was royalex and has wood gunnels: 16 foot Bell Chestnut Prospector RX. 
The latter was leaps and bounds an improvement from the barge.

I was on 116 with my 1206 Jayco SHW gizmos, and Sirius boombox.   

  At&t worked fine in camper but not outside.  My truck's 7 pin plug went south and we showed up at 11 pm on Friday.  Backed her in with the help from my girlfriend.   We took it easy all weekend.  Next week its lake Wallenpaupack Friday to Wednesday 2017 Boats and Brats Fest.
.   I got home at 4 and spent 3 hours prepping and packing up my boat.  Pup fridge on, portapottie not  dumped and almost forgot my Thule ratchet rope thingies.   All in all good time.   Slept till 11 am today and left at 3 pm.

Going to fix the 7 pin and more prepping for next trip.

Hi Snow.   
I'm back into pups and currently derailed in 4 foot drifts.  I might get the pup out by April 8th.

Hi did you buy lead acid or agm? Lead acid you will need to vent with box, tube, vent or big door.

AGM battery does not need vents and can be charged on your sofa.   

Very happy that you understand weight limitless and tongue weights.

Has anyone thought about running the Delaware River that weekend.   The pocono pony buses run Saturdays and Sunday.   7am bus ride.   12pm take out at Smithfield or even later.    I usually reserve the final trip day overnight to not get pressured during packing up     

This weekend in June I have my young girls and would not run the river with them.     12vt boat on flat water lol.

Hi I reserved site 17.  Thursday to Sunday.  Late arrival on Thursday Night.    Popup camper and a canoe.   I plan on fishing and recon the area for hunting.  Might bring my kids or  them up for that recon style trip.   

Hi anyone interested in Trout season opener weekend at Promised Land lower lake or remote Boondocking Delaware State Forest near stocked stream?   I'm kicking around either boat fish Promised Land or boon and put on the waiters for pine flats creek.   Trout fishing is a rite of spring in the Poconos.

I'm game for Friday rafting.  Lehigh river.  Not the Delaware.   Bought another canoe. Bell Chestnut Prospector 16ft in royalex.   Hickory run is a better raft and canoe trip.    Pocono pony from monroe county transit runs the free shuttle (sat or Sunday)  for Delaware river canoe/kayak/tube/whatever.  Park at park and ride, load county trailer, climb onto bus, 4 hour paddle.   Back to park and ride cruise 40 mins back to Promised Land.

My lab would roll around on bed and fall through the tenting.     He died this year.

I just checked Promised Land.   Somebody is camping New Year's Eve.   Also some of the cottages are rented that holiday weekend.

Promised land has top loops of pickerel point open all winter.      Comfort station stays heated.    The sinks out back get winterized.   Lower lake gets shut down in October.

I toasted my transmission on the 4 wheel hi tow during the the 2015 spring opener at French creek.     Snow camping memories!     

Spring Gulch New Holland might be snowed in as well.  I use a campa pottie in the pup if weather conditions are a problem.

Yeah those are more like gear haulers.     Popups can have every feature a travel trailer can have plus robust lifting systems.     I never liked those 1500lb camplights.   Money better spent a truck or better camping gear.    Put a rooftop tent on a 7500lb rated dump hauler for jack of all trades weekend warrior.

I don't think there are any real popups currently offered that come in 1500 to 2000lbs for 8 ft variety.     The tent trailers with no roof are 1500lbs.     The idea many have is use a CUV like CRV   Or Toyota corrola and get into camping.   There is zero sport in said models equally hampered on snow, off road and tow cabable.
