Lightbulb Something for everybody....

I can't go anywhere unless I have my crocheting or knitting. Just can't stand to have my hands not busy. I'm creating a duplicate set of crochet hooks and knitting needles just for the trailer...

By the way, Moby saw sunlight today. We drug him out of the barn for the first time in over a year. Boy is he dirty!!!!!!!!! Hubby worked on the new hitch and sway bar thingies and I sorted through all the junk I have been stashing in him. He can't wait for new windows, and flooring, and a cabinet, and a frig, and drapes, and.... well, you get the picture.

Have learned much from this thread.....making my list and checking it twice.

The mental picture you probably have of a 2 slice toaster with a propane line leading into it, is not exactly what it is...Go into Wal-Mart, in the Sporting Goods section, and ask for a camping toaster. It folds out to hold 4 slices of raw toast, and goes on one burner of the stove. It works very well, takes up much less space than a conventional electric toaster, and you can use it while boondocking, or even over a campfire or barbeque grill. Ours was $1.99. Here is a photo:

Camping toaster--ingenious!

Thanks for the great tip! I'd never seen such a thing before your post. I'll get one tomorrow!

We have one also. It is old and kinda square looking. It appears to be as old as bread itself. We also have one of these, a stove top Espresso maker. That will get the engine started!

Hi, Azflycaster,

You put all that stuff in a Beatrice-era Airstream? Well, who says you CAN'T take it with you?

In the spirit of the lists, I second the first aid kit, and recently having had a toothache, I'll be taking one of those kits with me, too, in the future. Oh, and stuff for headaches/PMS, too. (No, not the second for me.)

Lamar

I don't put all that stuff in my airstream, I don't play the ukulele. I do carry all of the dog stuff x 3. For toothaches you can always use some JD. It works for snake bite also.

well azflycaster and other pack rats........

that's a pretty good list...

almost as long as roadkingmoe's list.......see post 7 or so....from this similar thread a few years past...

http://www.airforums.com/forum...hlight=packing

the longer and more detailed the packing list.....
the more likely the item most needed will be left behind, no longer available or ungodly expensive...

there may be another packing list here longer.....but the server ran short of space.....

cheers

2air, I went trough the list and I only carry 50 of those items. That includes the two very nice directors chair we picked up today at Costco, $17.99 each aluminum frame and folds very small.
