Come on down to the beach, Beverly Beach State Park on the Oregon Coast weekend of the 28th. Four days, 8 major meals, 10 or 11 DO working overtime. Can always throw in an extra spud.

Still working on the stream but keep the moho stocked with a week of emergency supplies- food, water, propane, gas etc. living near a fault line you never know---
actually takes up very little room and great peace of mind.
Oh and of course YAHTZEE

Portable electric cooking ring. We're not boondockers and we love our 30 amps - this saves us using the propane and is used on every camping trip.

Not so much camping as glamping :~)

Know the feeling. Throughout hurricane season, my Interstate is going to remain fully stocked and ready to go in case of a hurricane evacuation.

Thumbs up Camping Bliss...

Do not ask the question....."why do we need that?"

Don't get mad when you hear...."did you bring your _____ ?"

Favorite Airstream provisioning tips

Lot's of good stuff posted on this thread.

But I don't see anyone mentioning the hardcopy edition of Moby Dick.

This has been a staple on all of our Airstream travels for at least the past 5 or 6 years - maybe more .....

..... well - in truth - maybe its more my staple .....

.... I read a little bit every year .....

.... a very lttle bit .....

.... and it's a big book .....

.... actually .....

..... I have yet to meet the whale ......

..... maybe this year.

Yup .....

.... I highly recommend it .....

..... a classic book for a classic trailer .....

..... a great addition to anyones Airstream bookshelf.

That's funny...we actually use a 2 gallon one under our galley as a trash can (grocery store plastic bags fit in nicely). It's great help when the copper lines break and you're trying to fix it on the road (not that I would know anything about this).

Having "Moby Dick" as required reading in school (elementary school, in Maine, where education still means readin', writin' & 'rithmetic) kind of soured me on ever reading it again. However, I seldom travel without a copy of the annotated "Sailing Alone Around the World" by Joshua Slocum. Had Slocum been born 100 years later, he would have been an Airstreamer.

Maybe we ought to start a parallel thread on Airstreamers' libraries?

There are collapsible buckets out there for those of us who must always think about space.

We also keep our unit fully stocked with duplicate items, so that the only things we have to take out each trip are clothing, fresh foods, etc.---i.e. contact lens solutions, toothbrushes/toothpaste, makeup, shower/toiletry items. Just so much easier than trying to gather everything up each time you get in to go.

Sounds like Maine is a good place to grow up - my wife (retired) has been (and still is) a highly respected elementary school teacher in our little community - she is one that has adovocated a return to the basics of "readin', ritin' & rithmetic'" that you talk about.

The placement of honour that I have made for "Moby Dick" in our Airstream has been a regular source of family humour for quite a while now. I would never be able to lay claim to being a voracious reader - excepting the news or anything and everything remotely associated with my career. After retirement I set a goal of transitioning an "A" type personality to a "B". A small part of that included spending a bit of time with some classic novels that I had never read - so my starters were Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn (they also hold a place of honour in the trailer). These books never leave the Airstream - it is amazing how I can seamlessly pick up where I left off - sometimes months later - without a hiccup - still no voracious reader but when we are camping 15 or 20 minutes a day is giving me a helluva great story and a lot of enjoyment for a long time to come ..... and the family thinks it's a hoot .... 12 years into retirement I can say that there are only remnants left of that "A" type intensity .... and who knows ..... maybe Moby Dick had a small part to play in that .....

I've been reading Shelby Foote's The Civil War series of books for quite some time now. I think about 8 years. I'm about halfway through the last one. It's always in the camper, ready to go... Your description of Moby Dick reminded me of that.

A short piece of pex line a few sharkbite connectors just in case of water leak.
Extra fuses.
A small supply of pop rivets and a rivet tool.
Aluminum tape (the type used to seal air conditioning duct work). Can be used for lots of things. I put a small piece on each side and at the bottom of the rear hatch when traveling to make sure it can't come loose. Also, it isn't noticeable and it easily removed. It is much better than duct tape.
120 V outlet checker (the type with 3 lights) to make sure polarity and ground is OK at camp grounds.
