Well I was bragging about all the new cabinets I created in our B and a funny thing happened last night. We went to bed with the cabinets nearly empty and tbey were full this morning when we woke up. Guess the cabinet fairy visited last night.

My idea of a successful camping trip is to eat our last snack when we pull into our driveway. My DW thinks we should get home with more than we left with.

LOL...and does she pack enough food for a journey three times as long as your trip?

Years ago we spent ten days at the Outer Banks. We had prepped and deep frozen LOTS of food. I kept the coolers iced down and some of the food was still frozen on our last day. A group of college kids moved into the site next to us on departure day. They had no food, and probably not much more than beer money. We left them with at least 6 meals of home-cooked food!

The first three minutes of this clip from "Das Boot" always reminds me what our Class C looked like on our first trip. Note the hanging hams and sausages and bread being stuffed into every opening. We packed as if we were setting off on the Oregon Trail and need sufficient food for six months.

Das Boot

10 years later, we use only half of the available storage space in our B. And we still normally have enough to last for two weeks. And there are always supermarkets along the way. Or, even better, the local stores and farmers markets. Traveling should be an opportunity to experience the local foods. For example, during our trip to the Carolinas in April, I discovered North Carolina style barbeque sauce. So different from the KC and Memphis sauces I am use to. And so good.

I warned you to milk this thing until the legs fell off.

Now your back to point zero.

We still need pictures!

You never know when you are going to need a 12 piece cast iron cook set and sit down formal china service for 18.

We always carry any extra kitchen sink or two and a spare Allison transmission for the truck.

In the late 60's my wife and I and 2 very small boys left California to visit in-laws in Florida. It was our first trip in a 2nd hand VW camper. By the end of the first day DW and I had had a long talk about all the heavy canned food that was stuffed in every available spot, enough to take us to Mongolia. The second day I stopped at a Safeway in Kingman Az so she could run in for some fresh milk. Half an hour later she appeared followed by a store employee carrying 4 large bags of grocery's. She ran to explain before I could blow my top, she had been standing at the check out when a bell went off and she won the grocery's. It took us another half hour to find where to put the stuff.

So it's true that your stuff will expand to fill all available space and nothing you do will stop it
