Glamping, I like it!

Well I still have a hand pump for water.
Well, guess you are roughing it after all. My condolences!

I carry lots of toys and books etc. because I'm usually up later than anyone else in the campground so I need lots of different items to occupy my time.

Hey Joy, what is that on the long pole on the back of your scamp? Is that a dish with a cover on it? Can't tell, I'm intrigued...

Hi, having camped with little ones who are now 14 and 7 and you may be surprised how handy that microwave is. When my girls were little they had no patience to wait for a hotdog to cook on a grill or boil in a pot on the stove. Also, cant cook chicken nuggets very easy either. The microwave has been great for reheating their macaroni and cheese and various other leftovers they didnt eat at the time. We found they were usually so excited about camping they would only eat a couple of bites before something distracted them so being able to reheat food was a necessity. Popcorn was just a bonus, lol. We bought a cheap used mini microwave for $10 and it's been great! Also, if you dont have a water heater it's the bomb for boiling water quickly for dishes etc.

Just my 2 cents having "Been there, done that".

Melissa

Yeap, that's my VuQube.

I've had it since Thanksgiving 2007. Just love it. Remote controlled satellite dish in the box. It self levels, then using the remote you set the elevation and start sweeping back and forth for the signal. It takes just a minute or two to pull the signal in. The times I've had trouble getting the signal have been because I read the elevation wrong or forgot to change it.

A friend made a bracket that attaches to the jack post through which the satellite post fits. The satellite post is simply a 6 foot cyclone fence post I had cut in to and powder coated black. There's also a bracket that fits on the top of the post and marries to a bracket attached to the dish box. It all locks together and to the trailer.

I made an additional bracket for the back of the trailer which I attached to the bike rack. I can place the dish to the front or the back of the trailer or if necessary run it out from the trailer with a long chain.

Two poles locked together and locked to trailer with trailer chains

Oh, by the way the satellite dish gets it's power from the little juice that runs through the coaxial cable which is attached to the satellite box.
