Micro Bunkhouse Trailer Info
Using a 22″ Blackstone on the Jayco JayPort
We love using our Blackstone at camp, and we use it for just about every single meal. We decided it’s about time that we upgrade from the 17 inch Blackstone to the 22 inch Blackstone, to make it a little bit easier to feed our family of four.
Jay Feather Micro vs Ember Travel Trailer
We’re going to compare our Jay Feather Micro trailer to an Ember travel trailer. We immediately liked a lot about the Embers. But, there are also a few things that we like better about the trailer that we have. So we thought we’d go through and do a comparison of how the Jay Feather Micro…
Fixing the Solar on the Side Port
Our solar on the side plug broke off after only three uses. And since I hear this is a pretty common issue, I thought I’d just show really quick what we did to fix ours.
Finding a Single Axle Trailer TPMS
We wanted to add a tire pressure monitoring system or a TPMS to our trailer. Our tow vehicle already has a TPMS system and we only have a single axle trailer. So we just wanted a simple TPMS system with two sensors. These are the options we found.
Repurposing Travel Trailer Tongue for Storage
When we switched to lithium batteries and moved them inside the trailer, we found we had unused space on the tongue. This is how we repurposed our travel trailer tongue to add more storage.
Pepperoni Pizza on the Blackstone Griddle with Pillsbury Crust
Being able to cook pizza at camp feels like a treat. And the Blackstone makes this pretty easy. We’ve shared a Blackstone pizza recipe before using Boboli crust. That was good, but this is better! This recipe uses Pillsbury crust and it is our favorite way to cook pizza at camp.
How to Cook Cinnamon Rolls on the Blackstone
Did you know you can use the Blackstone like an oven? I’ve been testing this out by cooking cinnamon rolls. Here’s how to cook cinnamon rolls on the Blackstone griddle.
Easy Sweet Potato Fries on the Blackstone
Sweet potato fries are one of our favorite sides to have while camping. They’re easy to make, they have no prep work and they taste great on the side of a burger.
Pepperoni Pizza on the Blackstone Griddle with Boboli
Pizza on the Blackstone griddle while camping felt like a special treat. We don’t normally use Boboli crust but that’s what the grocery store had so that’s what we used. It worked out well, was easy to cook, and tasted good.
The Best Off-Grid Camping Coffee
Since we primarily dry camp, we don’t want to rely on an electric coffee maker for our trailer. And we wanted something that tastes better than the percolator. So instead, this is the process we use to brew great tasting coffee while camping off-grid.
Stillwater Cove Campground Review
Stillwater Cove was a very relaxing place to camp. There were beautiful trails that easily kept both the kids and dog busy. And a beach that you can walk to from camp.
Doran Park Campground Review
Doran Park is a great place to camp. You’re surrounded by water so just about every site has good views. It’s dog-friendly, kid-friendly, and an overall relaxing place to camp.
Nevada Beach Campground Review
Nevada Beach is an amazing campground. Right at camp you have both Lake Tahoe and hiking trails. Plus, South Lake Tahoe is only minutes away. This is a great place to vacation, relax, and have fun.
Russian Gulch State Park Campground Review
Russian Gulch is stunning. The campground is beautiful. It is small and private. It has beach access, dog-friendly hiking, and lush greenery. And it is right next to the charming town of Mendocino.
Woodside at Salt Point State Park Campground Review
Woodside campground is beautiful and relaxing. You can camp surrounded by trees with lots of shade and you’re still only a few minutes from the ocean. We will certainly be back.
