So you're saying that coffee pot isn't a Keurig?

Back in the '90's, we visited a Museum that had a Camper used by Henry Ford and a US President for a hunting trip.  Very cool.

Id take that coffee pot over a Keurig any day. Thats how you make coffee the way it should be made.

Don, you got some really cute photos there!  Thanks for sharing them.

That would be the Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn, Michigan.  Henry Ford, Teddy Roosevelt and Thomas Edison frequently went camping together.  I would love to have been a bird watching and hearing those three!  Can't you just imagine the ideas flowing from their fertile imaginations!  Another fun RV museum is at Jack Sisemore Traveland in Amarillo, Texas.  It's behind their dealership but anyone is welcome to visit the museum.

Boil the grounds, and add egg shells to cut the acidity.

While I do sometimes take my Keurig, the $2 tin percolator gets used the most.

HA! I just picked up a percolator for the TT.  And I'm planning to cook dirty steaks this weekend.

I bought a campfire tripod from a blacksmith. I also got a neat firepit grill from him.

The rods from the tripod can be used as a cross bar over the fire. And with the extra hooks I got I can hang a couple of my Dutch Ovens and the coffee pot at the same time.

In September of 2015 we visited Greenfield Village, which is located next to The Henry Ford in Dearborn, MI.  They were having their old car days and the grounds were full of cars and car related items, all older than 1932.  Below are pictures of a Auto -Kamp Trailer, which was built in the 1920's in Saginaw, MI.  The owner had spent years collecting all the period items in the display.

If you like old cars, that's the best show I've ever seen and everything could run.  The cars could drive the roads around the grounds.  Everything from Stanley Steamers to Rolls-Royce's, and every configuration of Model T's and A's made.  Also included many old trucks.

If you haven't been to The Henry Ford and Greenfield Village, that week-end in September is a great time to go.

How many slideouts do those rigs have?


REAL old time camping is cowboy camping -- no tent, just a sleeping bag on the ground.
I never get lost.  I just have unplanned adventures.
