Brian describes a camping story where a small food disaster almost turned into a big one. Jami talks about finding and fixing up a 1957 Dalton vintage camping trailer. We both discuss how to have good, simple meals while camping. Plus, we introduce a “This Is Really Cool” segment about things we’ve recently discovered that we think are, well, really cool.

Vintage Trailer Camping

Camping across Eastern Oregon in our 1950s vintage trailer. We pulled it though the John Day Valley, Baker City (major point on the Oregon trail), through Hell’s Canyon to the foot of the Wallowas – which look like miniature Alps – where we finished our week-long trip at the Wallowa Lake State Park Campground.
The DIY’s to makeover the trailer included new flooring, new curtains, and covered seat cushions.
The trailer closet that needed the most work: a new door (see how it matches so well? Pretty proud of that!) and awesome shelves for each family member so we didn’t need individual packs.
We also mentioned that we’ve since sold this cute little trailer after many years of use to a sweet little family – you can see our goodbye here.
Camping Chicken Foil Dinner – amazingly easy and super delicious. It’s such a great first night meal – start the fire first, set up camp while the food cooks and you have a warm dinner ready when you’re done.
This is Really Cool!
