When we're camping we try to do everything possible outside. We always cook outside unless the weather is miserable. The outside kitchen was a necessity for us and the large awning was a bonus. A little rain will not keep us inside. Although coming from a popup, the nice inside kitchen will make meals during horrible weather much more pleasant.
And as all of our friends know and blame on us, don't plan any outdoor activities on the weekends that we plan on camping because the bad weather seems to follow us. But at least we have learned how to make the best of it and not let it stop us.
