Plan change, we are heading up Wednesday night after work so if you hear banging and crashing on #47 after lights out you know who to blame!

And a strange thing happened. My 14 yr old says "Dad, Algebra isn't as easy as I thought, I don't think I can miss 2 days of school right now." What has gotten in to kids these days?

So my +1 is now my Dad, who does not have homework to worry about.

What changed since last night? Seemed a bit far from "almost", at least by your description anyway lol.

Oh yay you get to come. I have an awesome retinologist. The eye surgeries aren't very painful but having one eye dilated for over a month stinks. Someone wouldn't let me have a patch which is what I really wanted. I was going to bedazzle it. I have had 3 retina surgeries and another unrelated eye surgery.
You guys are forgetting to tell new people about the little ovens. I am starting to plan our menus. I have to one up Shawn's cinnamon buns.
I am already thinking grilled cheese and splitting a soup. Breakfast burritos. I was thinking if i could find tins small enough Mac and cheese. I still have more days to plan but it is true that having a hot meal is fantastic

For those you you who might be scratching your head about now...........
Lunchbox stoves:

http://www.amazon.com/RoadPro-12-Vol...unch+box+stove

They reach somewhere near 300*. Their great for heating up soup in a can, but you must remember, when heating a closed container, you can only cook it for so long...........then BAD things happen We'll let Kerry tell the campfire story on that one.

These can be picked up at most any truck stop and I've recently seen them in Walmart and Meijer in the camping section. Going price is around $25+/-

Previous meals that have come out of these types of stoves include:
Hamburgers, hotdogs, philly swiss and cheese 'samwiches', all sorts of soups and chili, brownies, cookies and the current reigning champ.......cinnamon buns by Shawn.

However we musn't forget that Sara one-ups most all of us. Her and Indy bring a FULL SIZE 120V crock pot which has been in the past filled with white bean chili. Mind you this thing takes up the entire back seat. Indy has an invertor that runs the pot all morning long.

Dianne has premade pulled pork or pulled chicken with BBQ sauce & then we let it simmer in some aluminum foil till lunch time. We've also done hot pockets and other types of microwave precooked munchables.
I've also failed miserably on a couple frozen things that actually needed cooking.

I'm contemplating MREs, at least for the trail. I'm so far behind on everything else, I'm not sure if I'll have time to come up with anything better.

Truck is ready to have the camper sit on it... one step closer to being ready.

Jeep is pretty well set too. I just need to mount a couple additional 12v sockets and do a little grinding where I see I have a clearance issue.
