RTR washout. It doesn't look like people are having too much fun at the RTR this year.

That's Arizona for you. The next day was fine.

At least no one was paying anything to play in the rain.

Mine would have been free. Included in my insurance. I would think a lot of people have that or triple a.

Also, people were helping each other out.

AAA does not tow off road. They refused to respond to the RTR site.

I use cast iron and love it. I also like to do camp cooking and probably have too much stuff but itís fun to whip up a nice pot of soup outdoors and it gives me something creative to do. You may laugh at me but Iíve been lugging around a jar of sourdough for the past several months and I got the starter in Cody, WY at the Buffalo Bill Museum at the chuckwagon and I just had SD pancakes at supper tonight. It also makes great biscuits. Itís getting to be a pain tho and Iím trying to limit carbs lol.

Oh. I'm sorry meo, i didnt know you thought i was being pushy.

I wasnt intending to sound that way.

Just trying to help out with things you might not have thought of.

Heres an old boy scout trick: if you cook over an open fire, smear the bottom and outsides of your pan with bar soap. Rub it on real good. It will be easier to wash the soot and grime off when you go to wash it.

Continued happiness for you meo...

How does my pointing out that AAA does not provide service off road, equal me hating the RTR? What do these two things have to do with each other?

Thanks for the info. I didn't mean to imply you were being pushy. It's that the videos I've been watching have been so helpful and teaching me a lot, yet the consistent theme is that this is what worked for them but use your own judgement, etc.

Cloudy, you keep posting unfavorable remarks about this whole subject. It's hard to comprehend why. No one is asking you to do this and you have the right to your opinions but why don't you start your own anti-vagabond thread rather than posting negative opinions on this one?
