took the family out thursday, left them there till i returned after work sat night, we all stayed till mon.
was a good trip but rained most of it.
i was happy to use the new mr big buddy heater i bought last christmas. wow it worked awesome. kept us toasty warm heating the trailer in a short time. i am glad i read about here and decided it would be just what we needed for cooler nights and days. we didnt run it all night, just a bit before bed to take the edge off.
if anyone out there is looking for extra heat without a plug in, this one i would definately reccomend.

X2 on the Mr Buddy heater. I can get around 7 hours on one propane canister.
This is my PLAN B backup for heat.
We follow good ventilation and have found the right spot to setup our Mr Buddy heater right under a ceiling vent fan opening. Can just crack the opening slightly and it works gang busters for us...
I have the single propane canister model...
In the old days this Coleman white gas catalytic heater was the heater of choice for tent camping...

There is complete operating and safety instructions for Buddy Heaters online.
We have used a Buddy Heater as our primary heat source for 7 years in our last three motorhomes. I plumb them to the coach tank. We use our coach year around and during the cold weather it runs 24/7. If you follow the directions they are safe.
Didn't notice your home city. We are next door to Lakeway Realty. Our driveway goes from Lakeway through to Electric Ave. We are off to Fort Casey State Park Campground in the morning be back around the 7th. We should meet.
Too funny, Jim. I'm about a 9 iron away, up Toledo hill from Lakeway (but still in the cheap seats, not the big homes!).
I met a guy on ExpeditionPortal.com with a Sportsmobile and turns out he lives on Xenia, 4 streets away from me in my own neighborhood. We've been overlanding together ever since.
Have a good trip, and thanks again for the info. 2 weeks ago I was camping on the Chewuch River just north of Winthrop, then last weekend we got dumped on while camping at San Juan Island County Campground, but atleast we saw four Orca pods swim by camp in three days.
