    Yes, I feel as I was answering phones at the radio station again when the schools are on spring break.

    What is the best size yeti cooler for camping

    We did a lot of research before we purchased an expensive cooler and we decided on a 35qt Engle. We love the cooler, and yes it is worth the money. But it is large and hard to pack around so we also purchased 2 -25qt Engle coolers. We will use all of the coolers at different times. I really...

    What do you guys think is the best style of campfires?

    If I want it to last awhile I usually build an upside down fire. Larger pieces of wood on the bottom and smallest on top. For a small quick fire I build a teepee. For a fire starter I soak wine corks in rubbing alcohol. I have also soaked small pieces if pine from a project. The pine works but...

    ...Just checked out a low-heat dehydrated food website...

    I purchase freeze dried food from and put together my own recipes. We eat very little salt. Most of the food is decent and we can season it to our own tastes. We haven’t tried the pre-prepared food. I started with recipes from but it...

    How do you pack your tent?

    I have tried rolling clothes for packing. The life of me I can’t figure out how to roll them without lots of wrinkles. I smooth and roll carefully and when I unpack my clothes, they look like I just wadded them up in a ball. So I fold and put them in packing cubes carefully.

    How do you pack your tent?

    I just recently sent my tent in for repair. It came back today and the tent was sent stuffed and not rolled. I know there are different thoughts on this. I don’t really think either way is wrong. I was always taught to fold the tent so that it ended up in a strip as wide as the tent poles are...

    Your Best Hiking Boots?

    I wear Keen boots or shoes in the summer. I have a pair of Danner winter hikeing boots I bought 25 years ago. I wear them hiking, walking the dog, running errands and shoveling snow. With the exception of a few scuffs they look like new and are still comfortable. I would love to have a pair of...

    Bears in Indiana

    I grew up just south east of Angola and hunters always talked of bears. I never saw one but where we hiked but there was a bobcat on the land we hiked and camped out side of Avilla, IN. Of course the DNR said there were no bobcats in the area.

    Camping Plans 2015

    Thanks for the advice Grandpa. We are in the process of looking for a campground. We are not fans of KOA's and the resort type of campgrounds, but that may be our only option. So many campgrounds won't take tents. We looked at a couple of campgrounds we have ruled out because of altitude. We...

    Camping Plans 2015

    We are planning a trip to Fort Collins, CO next summer. We want to do some hiking. We will also be visiting our neice. Hoping we can get her to do some hiking with us, she isn't into camping so we will see. I am excited to see some real mountains.
