    Partner Steel Griddle

    Just arrived. PS griddles come in 3 sizes and this is the small one made for the 1 burner Partner Steel stove. Size is 9"x12", just right for cooking bacon. It has a 1 1/4" lip all the way around which is plenty to contain eggs, pancakes, or grease runoff. It is constructed of 1/4" thick...

    Supreme gas...

    Anecdotal evidence, last 10 days in Tennessee traveling 1800 miles. Average of 10% ethanol 87 0ctane($2.29 per gal)...17.1mpg. Average of 10% ethanol 93 octane($2.77 per gal)...18.4mpg. Average of 100% pure gas 87 octane($2.52 per gal)...19.0mpg. All miles in my GX470 on the interstate with...

    Looking for a Roof Top Tent

    Fiberglass/Aluminum RTT's start around the $3K mark and go up to $9K, which would restrict you to the used market. Also, you might be better served to research teardrop/squaredrop alternatives with the pet. Lifting a pet 6' in the air could get old quick.

    Supreme gas...

    Better gas mileage. With my '04 GX470 I get consistently 19-20mpg with Premium, but a tank of regular unleaded mileage drops to 17. My wife's CRV mileage difference is even greater, getting 32mpg with premium and dropping to 27mpg with unleaded. 100% real gas mileage is much higher for both...

    Camping near Ocoee River

    Chilhowee camp ground in the Cherokee NF. Right off U S 64 on 77 about 7 miles in. Campground has some elevation so it's cooler in the summer. Lots of views as you head up the mountain to the CG. Some sites have electric hookups. Beautiful area and close to the Ocoee.

    Project "Over Compensating" my 3.5x5 lowes trailer

    Ideas? Yeah, Bearing Buddies to keep those puppies greased up, and a wheel jack to make moving it around a lot easier. If you plan on putting a RTT on it then get a couple of leveler jacks for the 2 rear corners...gives this little trailer 5 points of contact with the ground, very solid.

    2013 FJ Cruiser pulling a Teardrops NW Recon

    The Tekonsha P3 is on sale at Camping World for $139 and Tekonsha Primus IQ is $80. Also any auto repair shop can install a transmission cooler. You can get by without one short term, but if you plan on keeping the FJCRUISER it will lessen the wear.

    suggestions for a trailer/rtt set up

    Something ready to go...think more like a Teardrop trailer. (says the one who has a trailer/RTT combo):blush: But if you want to really go all out look at a Turtleback trailer and a 23Zero or EeziAwn for RTT's.

Think Winnebago in a KOA. :blush: Summer's when we make our cross country trips to the high country in Colorado where snakes ain't never a problem, but skeeters can...
