As full timers, we try to have what we'll need for dinner that night. If it's an overnighter, my first stop is for fuel - before hooking up again. When we do go out, it's usually to a grocery store for meats and produce, WM for other stuff.

We have a seasonal site where we have our 10 yr old 30' Cougar permanently parked. We also have a shed where we have a fridge just for beer and pop which is usually full through out the summer months. I also like a good single malt scotch after a beer or three so there's always a 40 of that around plus vodka for the wifes paralyzers
We also have friends who have their 5th wheel parked on our lot most of the time as well so most weekends turn into one heck of a good time. They also have a Margarita machine so we're into making a lot of different tropical drinks as well [ Bahama Mamas,Hurricanes, Pina Coladas] plus one drink that we kind of invented on our own which we call a Frankie Bananas [ 2 oz Baileys, 2 oz Dark Rum, 2 oz Kahula, 1 banana and 5 oz Pina Colada mix][/URL][/IMG]

Our site.

the booze stays at home when we go camping(what little there is at our house). We prefer a nice coffee in the evening and nice cold water during the day.

When it comes down to adult type beverages in my house you have two choices.

Drink mine or bring your own.
If you bring yours bring enough for your stay.


As both add unneeded weight.
I do not mix.
I do not ice.

Life is short lets not complicate it.

Because we tend to camp off season, with an older crowd, we donít see a lot of people with campfires, sitting around having beers, wine, or drinks in the evenings. Lots of watching TV and going to be early by our neighbors. TVs, satellite dishes, cell phones, internet connections, DVDs, and cable connections have changed the way people camp.
Can you post the C/Gs that have a (BAR)?
We have never seen one. Youroo!!

We like to go to Colorado and stay at an elevation of 10,500 feet. The older I get the harder the altitude is on me. My wife has me on a plan, first night one beer, second night two.... by the time I get to a sixpack it's time to come home.

The local KOA I go to regularly has a wine tasting room on the premise. They sell all of the local Hudson Valley Wines in the area. That makes it very convenient!!!!

As long as there is electricity/water to brew the coffee for me and the frig is cooling the Pepsi/water and the icemaker working for TOWTA, we're sitting perfect. Anybody wants something else, it's strictly BYO.

We make our own wine from kits so we always have plenty of bottles with us and so far haven't been stung for duty crossing over the border with it. Last year, for a refreshing drink, we discovered the likes of 'frozen Mikes Hard Lemonade' ( other brands are also available) that come in a variety of flavours. Just stick them in the freezer for a few hours until they go slushy. Very refreshing and if you spike them up a little with some vodka, most relaxing. I believe they're about $2 each at Wal-Mart and can actually come in their frozen state. I prefer these over beer to 'relax' with because I find the beer way too gassy and bloaty.
