RE: On the need to be fully caffeinated

People were grinding coffee beans long before electricity was in homes. Search eBay for " manual coffee grinders". You will find many there, some antique and some new.

RE: Texas highway 16

Yes, the part of TX16 you asked about is good road and is interesting. The only bad portion is south of your route, it's between Kerrville and Medina.

RE: How long will your TT last?

I own 2 trailers, a 40 year old Compact Jr and a 34 year old Bigfoot. Both are molded fiberglass and both in great shape. I'm sure my grand kids will be able to use either if they chose to keep them. The Texas sun has had no effect on them. And, they have not been damaged by several Texas hail storms; unlike the roof of my house.

RE: Dallas,TX

BBQ in downtown Dallas is Pecan Lodge, 1010 S. Pearl. Other good BBQ joint is Lockhart Smokehouse, 400 W. Davis. For camping, I prefer Cedar Hill State Park. Pecan Lodge Lockhart Smokehouse Cedar Hill SP

RE: Food Processor

I've been very happy with the Ninja Master Prep. Different size jars allow it to do the job of a blender and a food processor.Ninja

RE: Question on tires.

If you have a local Pep Boys, order 2 Maxxis UE 168 tires from they. There is no better 14" tire for trailers.

RE: Dutch oven peach cobbler

The recipe was written for a 12" Dutch oven. At the bottom of the recipe it says to double if using a 14" DO. If you doubled it and used a 10" DO, you have put 4 times the recipe needed for your smaller DO. It would take hours to cook anything other than peach stew with that much in a 10". I would try the recipe with one box of cake mix and one can of peach pie filling.

RE: Dallas TX

John, Your route will work fine at midday. Remember that US75 southbound becomes I45 at downtown Dallas. You will need to stay on I45 past downtown. In 6 or 7 miles, exit west on I20 and then in 3 miles exit to south I35E.

RE: Newbie Dutch Oven Cooking Questions

One more item I would add is a large flat metal tray to put the coals and DO on while cooking. You can use the ground or pavement to cook on, but it leaves scorch marks. I use an old metal trash can lid upside down on 3 bricks. The pan that is sold for placement under hot water heaters works well as does a new, metal oil change pan. Even a strong cookie sheet will work.

RE: I am on a mission!!! I need a can opener that WORKS

The standard US Army issue can opener for T Ration cans is a modified Swing-A-Way. This has been the standard for more than 20 years. And, it works for me. They used to put P38s in the pack and they work but they're slow. A T ration can is 18" x 12".

RE: Tires

Pep Boys can get Maxxis UE-168 in that size. Like the Kumho Radial 857 and Hankook RA08, it's a small commercial truck tire sold here as a trailer tire.
