Cindy,

Great counter extension! Great use of space and materials!

Pam,

I'm camping next week in Half Moon Bay CA. I want to try out my new mods and find out what more I should do before I go on a long trip. This will be the first time cooking in Mouse and so my interest in everyone's kitchens.

I tried to go without a stove for a while (just use an electric hot plate). But I got tired of taking it in/out all the time, and the propane stove heats much faster. When I travel I try to think ahead and pre-cook some things, or choose items that cook quickly. I also have a mini-croc pot (about 3cups) that works great for cooking small stews, just plug it in.

Your kitchen looks like home with a coffee maker and a microwave!

Do you always camp where there is electricity?

I LOVE your kitchen, Pam! It looks so cute and inviting. Would like to see pix of the rest of your trailer. So do you leave all your knick knacks/Decor in when you are going to travel or is this just for when it's staying put like at home? If you take all your pretties with you, how do you travel with them? Box in trailer, Tote in tow vehicle etc?

Mostly, or I could use my Yamaha genny if we plan off grid. Also have the propane stove and propane grill under the bed. Fridge is all electric.

Here's what I have so far. Still have stuff to do, but I like the direction it's going. Replaced the fridge with an AC. Re-did the counter and doors. Sorry, no pretty things to make it look like home, yet. I'm letting the wife "think" (read that, shop around) about what she wants.

Here's some of my kitchen. I haven't done much except clean, replace the ugly knobs and the drab, drab, drab fridge door panel. I used a map of the area where I've been in the BWCAW, mounted it on some crescent board with 15-year-old 3M Spray Mount artist's adhesive, and cut a piece of .100 acrylic sheet to size. Toughest part was getting the old Formica out.
Fridge before...

There's still more to do, but I'm pretty pleased (it doesn't take much) with how things have turned out so far.

Mike,

What do you do without a refrigerator?

I have a chest type I set on the front bench. It's an 85 qt. made by Whynter. It only uses 2.8A hr on 12V. That makes it great for boondocking (I have solar power). I'm not all set up like I want to be, we only have had it since the first of the year. I have a thread in the Trillium section called "updating" or something like that.
