He Ruide's camping folding trailer blog

CamperCommunity.com is the premier Camper Community Forum on the internet. Registered Users do not see the above ads.
My blog is dedicated to folding trailers (AKA PopUps or PUP’s). Hopefully non-PUP owners will find some of the posts of interest/value.

I’ll cover equipment, modifications, maintenance, camping stories, and of course SPUT’s (Stupid Pop Up Tricks). Please forgive my rants & raves and posts on my camping buddy – my granddaughter.

They say a picture is worth a thousand words. So I try and keep the post short but augment them with pictures from my SmugMug gallery.

Enjoy.

I haven’t posted for awhile and that was due to me having a very difficult winter. A number of my web camping friends have been checking on me and I thought I should explain why I was not as active on the various camping fora.

You may recall that I’ve had two stem cell transplants - first in December 07 when they used my own stem cells and then in November 08 this time it was from a donor. The cancer (lymphoma) kept coming back. So in September 09, my doctor

Over a month ago I had planned my final fall camping trip to view the autumn leaves. We ran into a conflict in that DW decided that she would baby sit the DGDs and take them to Atlanta. Given that I have previously forfeited one three-day camp ground reservation she was OK with me going camping by myself. On Thursday she and one of the DGDs came down with the flu and so the trip to Atlanta was canceled. She still said it was OK for me to go camping. I wanted to...

French documentary film project: They are looking for RV volunteers!

Posted 09-12-2009 at 05:14 AM by heruide
Yesterday (9/11) was a National Day of Service and Remembrance. I was unable participate as I spent most of the day in a stem cell clinic. However, as I was reviewing some messages on a RV forum, I saw the message below. I can't say anything of the validity of the effort and unfortunately all the information I could obtain on these film makers were in French. However, I'm reproducing it here just in case there are some RVers that volunteer and may be interesting in contacting them.

Last week I wrote about the mod that took me the quickest to complete – installing a larger box from my group 29 battery. This week I want to share the mod that took me the longest to complete - adding a water transfer pump.

First, let me explain why I wanted to do this mod. Right below the number one thing I hated doing while camping – setting up the door – was toting water and filling up my PUP water tank. I solved the toting issue by getting a heavy duty carrier....
