Adding Insulation Under The Floor Of Your Airstream

Adding Insulation Under The Floor Of Your Airstream

Well, we had a minor setback with the floor installation. We bought the wrong plywood. Ugh. We purchased 3/4″ treated and tucked it away in the garage to dry for a couple of months (the stuff was heavy as hell because it was so wet.)  It wasn’t exactly our fault that we bought the wrong stuff. We left a single panel of subfloor intact at the door to make working on it a bit easier, but it just so happens that…

Beaver Island Webcam

Beaver Island Webcam

Have you been to Beaver Island, Michigan? It’s the largest island in Lake Michigan and part of the Beaver Island archipelago. You can get to the island by plane or boat. We’ll be going there in a few weeks, by boat, and just bringing our tent and renting a car while we’re there. The campground is only $5/night! The island has a population of only about 650 and much of the island is unpopulated, so we’re expecting it to be quiet!  The island…

Pie Irons For Camping

Pie Irons For Camping

Pudgy pies. Campfire pies. Mountain pies. Hobo pies. Whatever you happen to call them, the pie iron is one of the best damn inventions on the planet, as far as I’m concerned. Pie irons were popular in the ’60s and ’70s and were known as tonka toasters. Generally, they were used with (presumably) white bread and pie filling, but recipes have evolved to include pizza fillings, eggs, lunch meats, and basically anything else you can dream up. I’ve been using…

The Story of Our Airstream

The Story of Our Airstream

The roads were sloppy – full of slush and salt and sand. We had been driving for a few hours, making our way back home after a Christmas visit with family downstate. Our girls, then two and four,were tired and wanted nothing more than to be home. I agreed with them wholeheartedly. I was car sick from turning around and trying to entertain them, and nervous about the slick roads. Justin, ever an adventurer, saw the trailer on the side of…
