We just got back from the Fryeburg Fair in Maine with our toy hauler. We sure like that furnace when it's 40 degrees outside.

Speaking of camping, I'll be heading out for a camping trip, tomorrow morning. I've only recently developed a love of camping. This trip we'll be setting up camp at a NC beach campground. Something a little different from the usual wooded camping sites. Should be interesting. And then end of this month, I will be camping in the woods to get some relieve from the sunburns left over from this weekend's trip. So looking forward to both trips. Wish I had discovered the joys of camping years ago.

The furnace on at 40, NMLM?

I heard you Mainiacs didn't turn off the AC until it gets to under 30.

I just read through this thread and wanted to add a couple comments. I have spent quite a bit of time in tents since my family's first trip when I was 3. Tent had never been out of the box. My parents put it together after dark they said. I am a tent camper. always have been always will! lol
Talked to a friend in Washington state who didn't get to go camping as much this summer. The microwave in their camper messed up! Boo hoo! lol
For a good meal without pulling out all the camping gear, all you need is aluminum foil, meat, veggies, and a fire! Put a piece of meat (maybe a small round steak or similar) in the foil. At whatever veggies you want, potatoes, onions, carrots, whatever. Add what seasonings you want, maybe a little butter for flavor and keep it from sticking to the foil, and stick it in the fire.
I know most of you have done this many times but it's something I always enjoy!

That's an all time favorite. Learned it when my daughter was in girl scouts. We still us it when we want to " rough it". ha ha. It's make for a good party meal. Get all the ingredients and let everyone fix their own.

Back in the 1950s I did this on the exhaust manifold of a DeSoto straight 8.

He only has the one sister as far as I know. When we first met he would warm stuff up like that. Scared me to death.
