Dickinson P12000 Propane Heater

When we were starting out on this adventure and knew that we would run into some cold temperatures.  Most RVers head south when it comes time to winter camp to get to warmer temperatures.  We were faced with the problem that the snow skiing isn’t very good near the Mexican border.  Part of this adventure is really about learning how to overcome obstacles so we can become more proficient travelers.  Without further adieu, here is our Dickinson P12000 Review. Direct Vent Propane Heater Review There are loads of different types of propane heaters available and most of them will...

Colorado: Episode 1/ Chapter 1: Kremmling

Colorado: Chapter 1 – Kremmling Finally!  We have actually got the wheels turning on our big adventure!  Like with most stuff, it seems to take FOREVER to actually get past the planning phase to the action phase of a plan. Moving Out We REALLY started moving stuff out of our townhouse into the RV on Thursday.  We made quite a bit of progress, but it still took us most of Thursday and Friday to get everything moved out, sold, given away, thrown away and then got the townhouse into a condition where we were content on showing it to...

Denver New Years Eve

Denver New Years Eve 16th Street Mall New Years Eve AND the last weekend before we take off ‘officially’ on our Adventure in a Backpack.  We went out for sushi then rode the light rail into downtown Denver.  We stopped off at the Convention Center where there was definitely something going on, but we were not sure what.  I’ll tell you this though, the girls walking around were NOT dressed for the 4 degree weather, but I’m not judging, they were stylish, we were warm; it was a win-win situation!  After leaving the convention center we meandered our way...

Best Camp Stoves for Backpacking

Best Camp Stoves for Backpacking A good backpacking stove or camp stove is one of those things that isn’t technically necessary for a backpacking trip, but we sure don’t go backpacking without ours.  Its definitely a matter of convenience.  If you don’t have a stove, you are limiting your food source to not much more than tuna packets and trail mix, and trust us, that gets old in a hurry.  Sure you could use a camp fire, but that is assuming you have had the time to build a fire with a good amount of coals, and you have a good spot to put your pot of water/food in the fire.  All of that being said, a camp stove burns hotter than a camp fire which will give you boiling water faster which will give you coffee faster; and on a crisp morning in the Colorado high country, the faster you can get some hot coffee, the better. Stephanie and I carry the MSR Dragonfly Camp Stove on all of our trips and we love it.  It has temperature control so you can boil water in a hurry or you can turn it down low to simmer jambalaya for dinner.  It is not the most compact one, but for our purposes, it works the best.  If we didn’t carry the MSR Dragonfly, we would likely carry the MSR Whisperlite...
