I saw this sign recently and it was not at a Wal-Mart parking lot nor an Interstate rest area but while I was doing a 10 mile hike along the Brays Bayou in Houston, Texas. The sign resonated with me as the reason that got me into camping with an RV was also responsible for my doctors putting me under a camping prohibition. But I’m getting ahead of my self.

My journey started back in the spring of 2005 while I was on a trip from Cincinnati, Ohio to the Yellowstone,...

Over the last year there were times when my home carbon monoxide detector (CO) would go nuts when I was charging my PUP battery. Typically it would happen late at night. The first couple times I was really concerned that I had a CO problem, but with no combustion source active at the time I finally figured it was related to the battery charging.

However, batteries lead acid batteries will emit hydrogen so why was the CO detector going off? Rather than do...

This week I was going to write about one of the topics that generate a lot of disagreement among folding trailer owners – the BAL leveler. However, that will have to wait for a while as another item surfaced and I discovered it generated more debate than comparing a BAL Leveler to wood or Lynx blocks.

This all started when a fellow camper ask if he needed to ground his Honda EU3000 generator. He had a grounding bolt but wasn’t’ sure...

Comedian George Carlin, who died late last month, was famous for identifying seven words you could not say on TV. Now while I knew of Carlin, I must confess I had to look up what those words were. Of course I was not surprised to find that the words he listed were not exactly nice words.

This morning I while I was on a conference call I had the TV on CNN (with the sound on mute of course). I caught a glimpse of a folding trailer designed for the homeless. Unfortunately, I couldn’t write down any of the details. So later in the day I googled “portable tent for homeless” and found the “Everyone Deserves A Roof (EDAR) web site, articles and a Los Angeles Times Video. This portable tent is a cross between a shopping cart and a popup camping trailer.
