I like to get up in the morning and stay in my trailer (in my ghastly pjs) while I make coffee. The trailer smells wonderful while the coffee percs. Afer I get pretty, I open the door and have a nice hot cup outside.

Pam, you're making me want to wake up in my Scamp tomorrow morning! Sadly, won't be... But we will be taking it out for two nights at a state park in PA in two weeks!

Yes, I can sign under that any time. Mind you, in the morning it's me that looks more ghastly than any Pj's ever could... Anyway; smell of freshly brewed coffee I do enjoy in the trailer. What I can not stand (in the trailer) is the smell of the fish that was fried two days earlier...

I love to get up and make coffee inside and have a cup outside listening to the birds while sitting in my screen house after a little AM stretching. This AM, since my daughter was with us and all got very little sleep last night, I set the pot outside in the screenhouse, so when I got up, I bothered no one.

I did actually look for (knowing we could not buy it though) a Genesis for my son and daughter-in-law in celebration of their little one. She loves to cook outside, likes our small fiberlgass Uhaul, and has a large husband. The Genesis sounds like it would be the perfect fit for them. If we could buy it for them and figure out where to store it, that would be the perfect trailer for her cooking preferences. We did buy her an outdoor cooking station last year though.

I will start that "Camping with Kids" thread tomorrow, beginning with pix and the gift we did get for them for our Lily (who looks just like our son with my hubby's curly blond hair). Tonight, I need to crash.

We use our 3 burner porpane stove inside. We usually make hot water for tea in the morning and make toast in our electric toaster oven. If we make a lot of hot water, we pour the extra in our Stanley thermos and have hot water when we want, at least until we run out.

We used to tent camp and I have had enough of dealing with bugs while trying to cook food.

When I have the stove on, I always turn my roof fan on just to vent any gases that may be created.

With our Boler we cooked breakfast inside one time, but after our clothes smelled like bacon the rest of our trip, we did all cooking outdoors on a colman stove and grill. We're still active backpackers so having luxuries like running water, awnings, refer, easy up, camp chairs and all the warm clothes you want, table and a big stove makes cooking outdoors a pleasure no matter the weather. At least your not sitting on the ground or a wet log/rock huddled under a tarp eating freeze dried food!

We recently just replaced our boler with a T@B clamshell until we can find our next fiberglass trailer. I gotta admit, i'm pretty stoked about the onboard outside kitchen on the t@b.. But can't wait to get back to the long term dependability of a fiberglass rv!

Me too! You may have more success with the pretty part, though...

We set up the Coleman Drip Coffeemaker the night before, so all I have to do is sit up and light the stove burner under it.
Then I can dive under the covers again until it's ready.

We usually use a propane stove to cook outdoors. It's quite old and on our last trip failed us (temporarily) - we were glad we had an indoor stove to cook breakfast on, but as a general rule, we don't care to have lingering cooking odors inside. Also use our Baby Q as much as we can.

That's me too..Then by the time the coffee is ready the inside of the Scamp is toasty warm.
