Camp Box Tips

Soap & Water
Helpful Tips for Your Camp Box

Tip 1: Hygiene is important. Have water and soap (or a bottle of hand sanitizer) readily available. Make sure everyone washes before eating. The soap in a pump bottle works well.

Tip 2: If just starting out, think through each meal you will prepare. List all the equipment required to prepare and serve the meal, as well as clean up afterward. Acquire all the items on your list.

Tip 3: ďNestĒ your items whenever possible to make us of extra space. Large pots and pans easily store smaller items, for example.

Tip 4: Make equipment do double duty to save space. For example, use a plate as a lid for a frying pan. Buy a cup that can be used as a measuring cup too. Use your winch gloves as pot holders.

Tip 5: Avoid packing disposable silver ware. Thatís just more garbage to deal with later. Get used to using metal, unless you plan to wash the plastic pieces.

Tip 6: Heavy duty plastic is great for plates, cups, and glasses. Itís durable and lightweight. China and glass break too easily, so leave those items at home.

Tip 7: Space is a premium. Try to purchase small packages of food and condiments (pickles, olives, salad dressing, mustard, and such). You save valuable cooler space, and the unopened containers stay in the food box.

You can buy in bulk, but then create small cartons or containers of the products.

Rocks & Spotting Clinics June 26 & 27, 2010


Rocks Clinic Example

The June Clinics will be in Johnson Valley. This is an introduction to Rock crawling but it is not on "baby" rocks. We take out time and stress careful wheel placement. We use spotters for difficult sections. You learn by inspecting the obstacle and predicting the line; by watching others try their line; by experiencing it yourself; and by the coaching. We recommend you repeat the training several times. You will be much more relaxed the second time over the same obstacles and you will pick up on little details missed the first time.

Rubicon Trail Adventure August 16- 19, 2010


The Rubicon Trail

The Rubicon Trails is the stuff of legends. It is considered the Grand Daddy of trails. If your vehicle has a weakness, it will find it. Any serious four-wheeler needs to "Do the Con" at least once. There is no guarantee of avoiding vehicle damage. Even the most skilled driver can succumb to the fatigue of 12 unrelenting miles of rocks. Just bring a good attitude and the best prepared vehicle you can. This could be a once in a lifetime trip but a lifelong of bragging rights. More Details
