If you haven’t camped in a National Park, you are certainly missing out on some of the most majestic and most protected natural environments in America. Billions of dollars go into the maintenance and beautification of our National Parks, so why not make them destinations on your trips? Take a road less traveled and plan a night or two in a National Park. Take a look at the NPS website below and really take a look at everything National Parks have to offer the RVers.

It’s pretty comprehensive, huh? How can you not want to visit a National Park soon? After all, your taxes are helping maintain the the parks themselves. There are 58 National Parks to choose from, so you shouldn’t have a problem finding one to visit during your RV Adventures.

RV Cooking With Just One Log

Let’s not pretend that we are fooling anyone, if you are an RVer, you probably have, at minimum, adequate cooking pits, bbqs, stoves and ovens. However, I just thought that this was such a neat idea, I just had to share. This is how you do a little RV cooking with just one log. Mind you, this has to be a substantial log. I’d say you should use one that’s at least 10 to 12 inches in diameter. Your cooking surface is actually going to be wider after you make the cuts to your wood.

Before you do anything, prep your area for a fire. Remove loose brush and debris. If you have a concrete pad available like in the picture above, use it. Basically, (you’ll need a chainsaw for this, so be careful) stand the log on it’s end and cut it like a pizza. You are going to make triangular wedges like you see above. Stand your pieces of wood back up and spread them apart about an inch. This not only widens your cooking surface as I said above, but it also creates wind tunnels for the oxygen to blow through. Slide sheets of newspaper between each space and light ‘er up! The air will supply oxygen via the spaces between your slices of wood, which in turn, fuels the fire.

There you have it…a camp fire you can cook with using just one log.
