RE: Cooking on the Campfire

The point of seasoning is to seal the cast iron surface with carbon. If the pores in the cast iron are "open", would it not rust every time it gets water on it?

RE: Minivan towing 16' Scamp

I see no problem with towing a 16' Scamp. I've tow round trips with only minivans from DFW to Colorado, Ohio, South Dakota, Oregon, Minnesota, and Florida. Towing 13' or 17' travel trailers with zero problems.

RE: home made shower?

You may also need a water catch basin. Many parks will not allow gray water on the ground.

RE: Why are my trailer tires so hard to find in San Antonio?

Many roads are closed in Texas due to flooding, and more rain is coming. If you are traveling in Texas, check the Texas Dept. of Transportation road closure website. Click on "map search" near bottom of page. link

RE: anything worth seeing between Custer CD and Ft Worth Texas

We enjoyed Fort Robinson State Park in northwest Nebraska. It's an old US Army post that was given to the state after WW II.

RE: Canadian Military RV Parks

bukhrn, Military campgrounds are open to active duty, retired military, and some civilian DOD employees. If you served less than 20 years or were dishonorable discharged you are not eligible.
