My first beer came from a Saskatchewan ditch in the summer of '59.
It was "Old Style" Pilsner.
Opened it by driving nail through the cap.

It was pretty much awful.

beer cans....

you get cans because of less weight and no breakage....you may or may not drink out of them...but I got real tired of dealing with the empty cans...


until I found a storage area in the trailer I wasn't using very much...added the right size leak proof container...cut the right size hole in plywood....and there it is:

the perfect "empty beer can management system"....lift the edge of the cushion up and drop the cans through the hole



Now I only have to deal with the suckers at the end of a trip...pull the bin, take it outside, empty it, hose it down and put it back into place....
I never have empty cans lying around waiting to be put away or rolling around somewhere (sometimes leaking) in lower storage cabinets


LOVE IT !

I generally have a blue 5g 'food bucket' in the back of my truck on camp trips, I put it out near the door of the trailer, and I crush the cans and put them in it. if I'm being anal I put a waste basket liner in it. I also have a 2nd white 5g bucket I use as my outdoor general trash can, that always gets a liner.

I used to be a hard core 'bottles only' kinda guy but more and more of the craft beers I like are coming out in cans now, and the weight savings is significant, and I always pour into a mug or tumbler, anyways, so...

Yes, mostly true.

I was not allowed to drink at 2 years old, but Lethbridge Pil was my beer of choice when I started drinking.

Hi Walt, Fact - I do like to eat well. Hope things are good with you and your's.

That was taken at the Trail Creek campground in Caribou-Targhee National Forest when we were out west last month. Great little ten site cg right alongside a trout stocked creek just over Teton Pass. We used it as a base for exploring Grand Teton and Yellowstone.

Are you planning to have your Fall rally this year? If so, we hope to make it this time.

Love to see you two at the Hungry Mother Rally, last weekend of October. Should be the peak Fall color weekend.

What's for dinner?

Hi all,

Our 2006 new to us EggCamper is all electric, it has outlets but needs an appliance or two. I've got an induction cooktop on my Wish list. But since we have Coleman stove and griddle, I'm holding off for now.


I'm going to cross my fingers for good weather to cook outside. Otherwise I'll use the electric kettle and the choice will be oatmeal or ramen depending on time of day


Thanks for the good ideas. Going to try cornbread in cast iron Dutch oven, and those breakfast burritos sound really good too.


Sandy

Hi, Sandra,

Congratulations on the EggCamper...we considered those, as we love the all-electric idea. We have all-electric in our redone 1973 Amerigo, and have an electric icebox/cooler (keeps ice for 24 days, but doesn't make ice) and a microwave. We have been collecting microwave recipes and ideas and can make many things we'd make at home with just that. We also have a little one-burner butane cooker and frying pan that we use outside. And there's always the fire ring or BBQ at campsites.


Hope you have many thousands of miles of happy trails!


BEST
"K"

Hi, Sandy,

Those EggCampers seem really nice. Is that a double-hull, with a smooth fiberglass interior?


We've had some outstanding steaks cooked on the grill in a campsite...all the activity and fresh air really gives us an appetite.

If you can figure out how to post pictures, we do love them here!
You might even start a new thread to give us a picture tour...
I'm so curious to see your EggCamper, as I'm sure lots of us are. We don't have a lot of EggCamper folks here regularly. Mostly Scamps, Casitas, that kind of trailer.


Ours is an oddity here, too, though there are a few. Being a vintage type, getting hold of them is a lot rarer than the kind you can buy new. Even so, all-electric is also less common. Personally, while boondocking (dry camping) has a kind of fairy-tale allure, we really prefer to camp where there is power available. We have dry-camped, but it's not our first choice.

Anyway, good visiting with another all-electric owner!

EggCamper all electric

Hi Kai,

No pictures of our own yet although the listing from Fiberglass RV with sellerís pictures is still accessible. It is the 2006 camper that was listed in Peachtree City GA.
We pick it up in three weeks (yes, Iím counting the days).
The interior is smooth except for fabric covered panels covering center seam. But it seems they could be swapped out for wood panels or other alternate. I tried a picture attachment.
Iím hoping all electric works for us. There were issues of accessibility that made this right camper otherwise. Will be studying solar as update. But first things first

Sandy

Sandy,
Photo you posted looks really nice.

Agree, solar could be a good update...took us a lot of trips to gradually refine the equipment we wanted--and didn't want. Each trip leaves us with a to-do list and packing suggestions for next time...probably never going to have a completely standard way of camping. And at our age, probably couldn't remember it even if we did.


Thanks for the replies,


BEST
Kai
