It seems like you either have no money and all the time in the world, or money and no time for nothing...lol...

Right now we have plenty of time but no cash..hehe

Things we have bought for the camper :

New awning

More towels

And I won ( thanks to this fourm ) a checker board nightstand. :10001:

That's it.

I know what you mean willie, I am going stir crazy wanting to go again. The first trip was not the best, between the rain and the wife being sick and going to urgent care.

We were going to go this weekend, but we forgot about a dinner party we had, which we just got back from. But I do need to get my garden in this weekend anyway, if it will ever quit raining. I know soon we will be beggin for rain, but....

Sounds like you got all the right toys for the rig this year. I was thinking about getting an electric chainsaw too, since they are much quieter for the campsite. I could see that coming in real handy.


So you got the flat screen mounted, or in an entertainment center?

How has your EZ UP or E-Z up worked out? Still displeased with it, or has it gotten better?

Question... when you are guys are camping what do you use the chain saw for? I have an electric chain saw but I never thought about talking it with me. Now I do carry a large axe to split fire wood.

Willie, Your explanation makes sense although if I were collecting fire wood out in the forest I would not be worrying about noise and would want a regular chain saw. I quess others must be bringing back wood to the campsite to cut up.

I usually have mine cut before I go, however I have considered getting an electric chainsaw to take with us for use at the campground. I see people using them all the time at the campground, and they are quiet and dont really disturb anyone.

I always take my splitting mall with me for trimming any of my wood, or for cutting some I may collect while there. There has been many times I could have used an electric one for long limb trimming. This becomes a pain to cut up a 8 foot log thats 6 inches round with a mall or ax. Chainsaw would make quick and easy work of that.

Thanks for all the answers to my chainsaw question. I will confess I never thought about bringing one with me while camping but then I either take fire wood from home or if that is prohibited I'll buy it close to the camp ground.

Take care.

DW and I are itching to go. We have a two week car trip planned and until the price of diesel went through the roof, we were going to take the camper on this near 5,000 mile jaunt. None the less, DW always enjoys a respite from the house so maybe in August, before school starts, I'll propose the idea of plunking the Cat 45 miles away at a Texas State park and let DW "rough" it for about a week or 10 days. Between reading on this forum and another about FR Wildcats, I'm ready to check pressure and the torque on the wheel nuts, make a trip to the grocery store, go and tell work what to go do with itself!!
