We threw it into the fire and it didn't burn. I think it was all burned out!

I confess that I love the sound of rain on the camper and canvas tents ends of Rooby, our 233s hybrid. Packing up in the rain.....NO!

What did you leave it in? An Incinerator?

The story is- I was given the moon pie maker for Christmas 2011 from my in-laws. I carried that dang thing around in the camper all last year but never of it out. The packaging (and therefore instructions) were long gone.

I don't cook. I don't even do man cooking (where I stand by the grill, grilling up the food the wife prepared and then tends to after it's removed from the grill) and I don't grill for real. Wife does it all.

So when I asked her how long it should be on for, she shrugged. We figured it was kind of like baking. I NOW know, a minute to a minute and a half is good. We left it on *each side* for a good 4-5 minutes! Fortunately, my father-in-law cooked the next ones and each got better as he did a bit of playing around with times and actually counted seconds out in his head.

Envy X2. That's what I get for marrying a flower child from the 60's!

Describes me to a "T". DH says he loves camping because he gets home cooked meals-unlike at home where I see which take-out place has the best deals!

Which did you through into the fire? The moon pie or the moon pie maker? :-)

Agreed, the only time I have lots of problems is when I try to over think it. If I just start backing in, and react without thinking goes much smoother.

My rig is 35 feet long and I have a crewcab 4X4 truck, so when I back into a site the front of the truck will almost always have to swing into the grass area opposite the site. Thatís when those posts can jump out and damage your truck. Hereís a pic taken at Meramec State Park.

Who's bright idea was it to put those post in there....
