Hey, somebody else tooted my horn for me. If you haven't checked out Bubblews yet - it is a lot of fun.

Time to gear up for Fall and Winter camping.  Some basic truisms:

Everything will take longer - from camp set-up to cooking, make sure your activities agenda takes this into account.

A pair of merino wool socks will be the best cold weather camping gear investment you ever made. They are all you need for cool temperatures, and make an excellent wicking base layer for colder weather.

Dress in layers - the proper layers, stay away from cotton in cold weather.

Make sure your camp food, snacks, and meals contain a lot of carbohydrates. (potatoes, pasta, grains) - they are the best fuel for your body to generate heat.

Well, maybe I had it all wrong.
I posted a link about how to keep animals out of your campsite, and skunks and opossums were targeted culprits.

Now after viewing the lady below. Maybe we should look at our opossum invaders differently.

How about an informal poll?
What kind of ice chest do you take camping?
I've always been a Coleman Extreme fan, both for performance and costs (I don't have a Cadillac budget), I knew about Engel and Yeti coolers, (but could never afford them), but I recently came across Grizzly ice chest coolers, (which I can't afford either), and they look like they might be the "best of the best" - even better than Engel or IRP coolers.

Anyone own a Grizzly, or camped with them?

It's camping time. For bears, raccoons, opossums, and skunks, that could mean buffet time.

Even for RVing folks. Just because your food is enclosed in your RV doesn't mean your campsite might not invite some unwelcome animal guests.

Just because you are not in bear country doesn't mean you don't have to worry about wild animals in your campsite.

Do you know the #1 way to keep them out?
Don't leave food or food scraps laying around!

And that includes food scrapes and empty sugary beverage containers in a trash bag - just ask the skunk in the second video.

Be sure to get your daily trash out of your campsite before calling it a night.

Do you know how to shoo them out if they do invade?

Here's a helpful article that will tell you how to avoid an unwanted critter invasion - complete with videos of marauding wildlife.

Greetings +Don Bobbitt Thanks for the invitation. Posts here look very informative - for RVers, But can you really call RVing camping? (just kidding, I say the same thing about Glamping)

But , you have prompted a thought that might be a subject for you to handle - RV camping checklists. I have extensive camping checklists, (see greedy self-promotional link below), But I would be out of my league doing one for RVers.

Do you think RVers, new or experienced, would be interested? I think they would, and you have the experience to post one.

Can you identify Poison Ivy and Oak? What about Poison Sumac?

Have you ever suffered the misery of their rashes?

All three plants are abundant in North America, and now that camping season is in full swing - so is your risk for exposure.

Make sure you now how to spot these plants - especially if you are camping with kids.
