Why we like lightweight trailers

2-3 hours of trying to get our friend's 23 foot monster trailer off his front lawn to go camping this weekend reminds me of why we like our little lightweight Trillium.

We now call our friend "The Rototiller".

oh my goodness...i am just so envious of anyone who is ABLE to go camping this weekend! we may be in the midst of our january thaw, but we still have tons of snow on the ground, water everywhere from the melt, and temps hovering around freezing.
to go camping sounds wonderful!

What a mess! If he can't trade for an egg, he could at least put in a load of crushed rock and make himself a driveway.

Well, he did get out and we did make it to the campground without any damage... except to his front lawn. But then, while driving through the campground looking for a site, he rounded a sharp corner and scraped the side of his trailer on a solid metal gate! Nothing on his trailers we couldn't fix with a pair of pliers but still, rough day for him.

All's well that ends well: here's a dish of "Shakshuka" he cooked under cover outside in the BC rain. It tastes best that way. All 10 of us pile into his trailer for meals and drinks, so the advantages of a big trailer are not lost on us "little eggers", however we have no plans to trade up in size. Ever.

Yes, crushed gravel is the likely solution for him.

This is our second Canadian winter camping trip, and I must say, we love it. To those who have never tried it, I promise: Lots of sites to choose from, no need for air conditioning, and absolutely zero bugs. ;-)

Coming from the lower 48 states region (specifically Michigan, the 'Mitten' state) I need an explanation of Shakshuka, please

My friend is the chef so all I know about shakshuka is what I've helped prepare (lots of chopping). Very yummy on a cold day - or hot!
