Yeh I go on trips to have fun, I do the quick and easy recipes. Hotdogs over the fire, bratworst patties, hamburgers cooked on the electric foreman grill, which wipes off after I am done, I made veggie, meat kabobs without the stick and wrap in tinfoil at home, then grill. If you are an experienced griller you can come up with things. Guess I am over the whole campfire thing. Seems like you spend the whole trip gathering wood.

You guys are cracking me up calling camping with a generator PRIMITIVE!!

Bwahaha!

I used to guide pack trips into the Colorado rockies where even a heavy dutch oven was out of the question. All cooking was on a grill, cool handle frying pan or squirrel forks. We ate like kings on those trips. On the base camp trips we did have dutch ovens that were all wood fired. I loved cooking with them.

Generators.......are you going to have blow dryers and tvs,too?

Personally I was cracking up over the primitive camping bit. I've never camped where there was electricity (not even from a generator), feel lucky if there is an outhouse and potable water you didn't have to lug in yourself is a luxury.

Well......they never said they were bringing a generator. Just said that the rule was they had to be off by 10. I think the only anemity that was stated to be there was water.

To each his own, I spent many a years sleeping in mud, rain and being miserable. You wanna live out of a ruck ? Have at it. Those days are over for me. I have a gooseneck trailer, Makes a pretty good base camp. Has plenty of room for a generator and if a cute girl wants a hair drier to come along with me that's great to. Id much rather have her and amemory foam matress with propane heat and a AC, to snuggle up with at night than a frozen cold ground, with snakes crawling in my bag, scorpions in my boots, etc

Baby steps folks...baby steps!!! We generally camp in my Brenderup - clean it out and we do have electricity at Ebenezer on Lake Sam Rayburn and there is showers/rest rooms there so this is a little less than we have camped with before.

"Primitive" is the word Brazos Park put on it...so I am going with semi since we will be hauling a generator! I would like to one day really go camping on the horses and that may happen. We are going to check it out from the safety of Brazos Bend which is about 2 hours from home. I can grill so that isn't a problem...but I must admit - I like a few creature comforts!!! The main one is AC at night. I don't mind staying out all day in the heat and riding but at night, in southeast Texas in the summer, you could smuffacate. (my own made up word that my oldest son finds icky! ) This will be in the winter time and we might freeze our backsides off or be hot. One never knows in se Texas!!! Gotta be prepared for both.

Don't need a blow dryer - my hair will be a giant frizz ball put up in a pony tail and under a hat...Don't watch TV but it would be nice to have wifi!!!

Joe, I am with you!!! A few creature comforts never hurt anyone and scorpions don't make a good bedfellow - snakes either. I am not scared of snakes...but rats/mice? O M G I would run over everyone in the camp to get away from them. Hopefully, won't see any of those. I think we are going to have a blast and December can't get here fast enough. My son is getting married the first weekend of December and I am making the wedding cakes - then I can go play with The Biscuit. Woot!!!

Well, if I had been able to carry a blow dryer, I might not have looked like this on most of my pack trips!! LOL!!

Allison, if my hair looked that good I wouldn't have it in a ponytail under a hat!! I have very curly hair and the front will FRIZZ. One day I had a hat on...no ponytail. We stopped at a convenience store on the way home from camping/riding for hours and I looked in the mirror. Oh MY GOD I was mortified I looked like Bozo's momma - my hair was a two big HUGE frizz balls on both sides of my face and I was dirty to boot. I was embarrassed for even my husband to see me... he was kind enough not go say "yuk!"

I've used a box wrapped with aluminum foil plenty of times for baking. It weighs nothing. Can cook as fast as the oven at home. Learned this in the scouts 50 years ago.
