After a long day shivering in the frigid winds at 14,000 feet on Day #12 we were ready for another recovery day. So, for Day #13 we planned on moving camp from Leadville down to Poncha Springs. Along the way we’d do lost of touristy things and meet up with some great friends.
It’s finally time to tackle a classic camp-meal: Chili! This has been a long time favorite of mine that I didn’t think could get better. But when I took the time to cook it over a campfire, both the chili and the experience were unbeatable. Take a look at our cookout, and then see the detailed recipe below.
After a nice-and-easy travel day, we were ready to hit the ground running—well, hiking—on Day 12! With another early morning wakeup we found ourselves at the trailhead for Mt. Belford & Mt. Oxford before 4am. Join us as we knock off 2 more peaks, 2 drives, a water feature and a really cool coffee shop!
We’ve been living in our camper for over three years now and have always enjoyed seeing what great food we can make on the road. Just because you’re traveling or camping doesn’t mean you can’t eat well. Our camper kitchen is a perfect space for cooking just about anything, but when we’re out in nature nothing beats cooking over an open campfire. This meal allowed us to do both! Happy Sunday Funday!
We will begin with a rather non-traditional “camping” dish: Spring Rolls! Mandy majored in Chinese during college, and in her time there she learned to make these spring rolls from her good friend, Candice. When Mandy asked her permission to share this recipe, she simply replied “of course, good food is meant to be shared”!
When we moved into our nüCamp T@B 400 camper and 2019 Toyota Tacoma we couldn’t be happier. But we soon realized that our truck would need a few improvements to handle the extra weight of the larger camper. Mainly, we needed something to help reduce the amount of squatting we were seeing in the back end of the truck when we hitched up the camper.
At the beginning of February, Kendrick and I found a very very rare block of free time. Wanting to take advantage of it, we booked a last minute trip to Hawaii! We spent most of our time on the trails and in their spectacular mountains… mixed in with just a little bit of beach time. We visited Maui, Kauai, and the Big Island. It was so very difficult to narrow the video down to just 4 minutes out of 2 weeks, but I did it! Enjoy!
