RE: Rusty microwave = more storage

To make other use of the microwave that I use 4-5 times a week, I bought a platter to fit and store bread in there. If I use the microwave, I just lift out the platter with one motion.

RE: OTR Recipes

I make a couple of favorite hot dishes & soups at home then portion out in Rubbermaid Take-Alongs. The ones with red covers. Love those containers for the camper because A) square shape. B) stack nicely. C). Inexpensive

RE: Popcorn

I make mine in the microwave in a glass bowl I already have on hand in my limited amount of space. I put a plate on top of it and leave a little bit of the top open for venting. Works perfectly, with butter/oil or without. The bowl gets super hot, but that keeps the popcorn warm so I don't complain. unbelievable as it sounds, my beige Corelle plate got burn marks on it when I did this. Yes, I know, who could screw this up ?

RE: Window awnings for house

Look at a. Product called "Solar Screen" that replaces your screens from top to bottom blocking out 90% of heat. Come in lots of colors. We put them on maybe 8 years ago & big difference. Thanks, will look into that !

Window awnings for house

Looking to put awnings on South and West house windows. Each side has 3 windows close together and each span would be 12 feet. This is a deck that was enclosed to be a sun room by the previous owner. Need recommendation, please. Cloth, wood, metal ?

RE: Roadside Lost & Found and/or Confessions

Grandson parked by a construction truck at a small truck stop. The driver explained to grandson that the (expensive) ladder on his truck wasn't going home with him. He was from out of state and his company had authorized him to buy it for the job he was sent to do. He offered it free but grandson said he wanted to pay for it, if the price was reasonable, so the guy said $10. Grandson only had $8 on him and other guy said no problem with $8. Grandson had just bought his own acreage so he'll use the $8 ladder for years to come.

RE: Dinnerware for RVing

Set of 8 square plastic plates and bowls from Big Lots. Each is different color, it's my Poor Mans Fiestaware. Mom had a set of 6 place settings silverware so I think of her when I use it. I never use plastic anything in microwave so I have an old glass casserole without the lid to reheat and make oatmeal. I need to get a smaller size too. Drinking glasses and coffee cups are unbreakable.

RE: Has anyone rated Walmart parking lot experiences?

We do this occasionally and it's been alright. For lack of a spot out of the way, we had to park on the side of the lot near the entrance. It was Friday night and before long, vehicles drove in and out like it was Black Friday. They kept it up until 10 pm, then it quieted down.

RE: What is the strangest thing I've "hit"

A wood stove. A pickup coming towards me on a curve had the stove in the bed held down with twine. The centrifugal force of the curve was too much for the twine. It broke and the stove went over the truck bed, into my lane. It bounced up (I did not know cast iron could bounce) over my hood and into the windshield. TWINE ? Ya, I can think of no reason to secure a cast iron piece with twine.

RE: What are you reading?

Just finished "Mennonite in a Little Black Dress" now starting " The Glass Castle". It's my 36th book since Jan 1, 2017. Grandson and I are having a " race".

RE: Frustrated by short beds and uniformed salesmen

Not reading every post here,so maybe someone covered this already. I took a queen size fitted sheet and sewed 3" seam across about the center of the sheet from side to side. This way I don't mess with fitted corners. When in bed, we don't feel the seam at all. Try it on mattress and see if it fits before continuing. You have successfully shortened the sheet 6". (3 x 2 = 6). Stitch the flap down at the fold OR cut flap off about 1" remaining. Then cut ONE side of 1" down to 1/2". Fold 1" over 1/2" and tuck under - then stitch down. This makes a " flat fell seam" like the side pant seam of jeans. You can bounce a quarter on your bottom sheet. MUCH better than tucking excess and fighting with it daily. guy near us sells mattresses out of a little warehouse and he handles 3 grades of "short queen" mattresses. He's $100 cheaper than the one furniture store who sells them. I should get a kickback because I send lots of business his way! We got middle grade, paid $259 and LOVE it. Doesn't even advertise, but he says his phone rings off hook starting May 1

DIY end table

Between sofa slide out & refrigerator is 9" wide wasted space. Found a large kitchen cabinet door at a salvage store and took it and measurements to a cabinet man. Could've done ourselves but we're traveling for a while and don't have necessary tools. Table Top fills the gap, not tight, however. Instead of buying 4 legs, we had him cut 2 pieces for 4" wide legs so there is one leg front and one back. Back one is shorter since it sits on a raised channel that runs along back of sofa. We screwed them on with L brackets. Done deal. Bonus is the color is perfect match to the other cabinets. I remove table and lay it on bed when we move. Makes huge difference.

RE: Your favorite camping cookbook?

When I find a good camping recipe, I write it on card and slip it in an old photo album that stays in the camper.

RE: Hidden Gem

Well! It's not "hidden" any more... you just blew your chances of ever getting a campsite there again! (Thanks... this sounds like one I'd like to checkout.. Sorry if I get there before you do next time!) ;) Have at it, please. We were passing through, doubtful if we get this neck of woods again.
