Introduction and Show Off / Seasoned Campers from Illinois, but New Here
« Last post by LetsCampSmore on Yesterday at 07:25:43 PM »
Hi Everyone!

We are Diana & Eric from Illinois. We have a 2012 Flagstaff 228BH which we tow with our 2013 Toyota 4Runner. It's our 4th PopUp and 5th RV overall. We have camped in many states, including Hawaii and Alaska (drove a Class A up there 7 years ago). We run a camping blog called Let's Camp S'more: http://letscampsmore.com/, which has camping DIY, recipes, mods, reviews and more! We have Mod Squad features which are mods (or anything camping related) submitted by readers. If anyone would like to be featured, let us know.

Do you have a picture of the storage unit?
Thanks

Does anyone want a smallish three drawer storage thing. We used it for years but not so much anymore. I'm going to throw it out after this trip so thought I'd see if anyone here could use it.

Wife was looking for a place to store rolls, bread, chips, snacks, etc while camping.

Closet organizer turned sideways.  I cut 1/4 plywood for the top and bottom to strengthen it, tapped support bars to thread hooks to hand it.

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.

We are making our reservations to come but will be in site 57 which is not on the list above. All the others are unavailable at this point. Just Carol and I for now but hoping to entice a few more family members to come. We are in for the potluck. No fur-babies with us either.

Not exactly, maybe a decorating theme of sorts, no sound-track, though.
First popup had a woody vibe to some of the items, such as the quilts. Second one ended up with some Route 66 and vintage themes - quilt, vintage eating utensils. The travel trailer is a Retro, so that sort of sets some of the tone. Same quilt (next couple have vintage looks, not yet finished) and throw pillows so that's Route 66 and vintage. Same vintage "atomic" eating utensils (Twin Star Oneida pattern from the late 50s, same pattern my mom bought when they built our new house - in 1959).
Maybe some of it is just funky - like the couple of flamingo decorations I've ended up with. I seldom look deliberately for decorative things for the camper, but still manage to find some fun things. Blue glass cabinet door knows were the right size to replace the original ones (they pinched fingers), for example.
