It will be interesting to see how my husband does while baching it while he's working in N. Dakota. It's hard to make a TV dinner on a coleman camp stove. I am waiting for the first time he takes a shower in the camper when he's camped out in the parking lot of the office. He'll be able to do get 2 of the 3 S's done at one time.

When he goes to the Burger King drive-thru after work, will it count as his having "cooked outside"?

But don't keep us in suspense...!
?Are you a Grandma yet?

(or is it again?)

When I'm on the road between camping locations I always use the inside stove for a quick, hot meal. When camping I like to use the BBQ for the evening meal unless it's raining and then I use the inside stove. I usually have a cold breakfast but if I cook, pancakes for instance, it's always inside. I wouldn't like to restrict myself to always having to cook outside. I spend 3-4 days each week camping in the summer and the weather doesn't always cooperate.
I camped this weekend at Mactaquac Provincial Park near Fredericton, NB, in the unserviced tent section, and it was 45 degrees in the morning. The tenters were bundled in coats while they cooked breakfast; not my idea of fun camping. I was inside, with the furnace on, and using my stove to make coffee. Ahhh.

When I bought my Scamp I did a lot of looking and thinking about what I wanted and what I didn't want. I looked at Motor Homes, stickies, and tear drops before settling on the Scamp with the options I have.
The tear drops were pretty close, I kind of drooled after them many years ago. What drove to any RV is the first place from a tent (backpacking tent) was 1. When at group events I was getting tired of getting dressed laying on my back. 2. I wanted to extend the season to year around. 3. The tear drop lost out because you had to go outside to cook.


There is of course some people that will pull into a camping spot and spend 4 to 5 hours getting all the stuff out, spend one night then spend another 5 to 6 hours putting it all back in, then leave. I suppose for those cooking and eating outside are part of their preferred camping experience. As for us we set up in about 10 minutes, take a walk around the neighborhood and see who and what's around. Then relax and watch the world go by. Sometimes you get to see some pretty cool things that wouldn't see if you spend all your time dragging stuff out and back in. In our case meals are very simple.

We spent some time with our Ventura in northern Manitoba recently. We set up camp including a square canopy/shelter that can be beefed up with canvas sidewalls or bug screens. We woke on the Monday morning to heavy wet snow and a bitter wind coming off the ice that was still on the lake. Put up the canopy sidewalls and cooked outside on the picnic table. Set up the dinette inside (for the first time in several years of trailer camping). We were comfortable with the electric heater going - spent the day going out for a while and then in for a while - the next day dawned sunny and warm!

Thanks for all the feedback.
Now, just to be clear;
I'm no stranger to cooking and eating outside in any weather yet, I have a portable butane and another electric stove (both single burner) so, if I really need to cook inside, I still can and on a rare occasion do. I just do it so rarely that having a permanent kitchen inside feels like a waste of space for our use.

Andrew, I find the indoor stove to be pretty convenient in the morning. My wife and I need our coffee. However, when we are "hooked up", I usually boil the water in an electric kettle and pour it over the Melitta. We like to make pancakes or eggs for breakfast, and I like to eat before venturing out for morning. Having said that, I really dislike the amount of counter space that is taken up by the stove top. I would like to replace it with one of the more European stoves that is recessed and has a glass cover that makes it flush with the countertop. I would do the same with the sink, too.

I guess that picture clears up any confusion as to the "nut" part of your name!

You're a better man than I am, "Andrew Din"

Cindy!

"Lily Abigail"- what a beautiful name!
I remember well the day each of my grandkids was born- how thrilled you must be...
How about honoring your new family member by starting a "Camping with Kids" thread?
It's something we (currently) lack, and I can't think of a more appropriate opener than pics of your new little angel-
Of course, along with Kid Tips, we all get to post our own pictures of the most beautiful children in the world.
Which mine are, I state here for all to see.

Francesca

Wow - that sounds like my dream set up! We still have the stove top/sink installed but covered to make a shelf.

It has been so interesting reading about everyone's cooking arrangements. Definitely sounds like 'to each his own thing'. One of the good things about camping is that there really isn't a 'right' way to do it.

You've got that right. My wife and I can't even agree most of the time!

As for kids... We ha our first last year. He's 14 months now. He went camping with us in the fall. On one trip, he was teething.... Oh, boy!
