Two weeks ago we were camping for my brother in laws wedding. the KOA we stayed at has these amazing TIKI logs for sale. the gentleman who makes them was there on saturday evening demonstrating them for people in the park. he buys the hollow parts of Cedar trees and uses a chainsaw and angle grinder to make the designs. I couldnt pass it up and had to get one. the one in the picture is the one he was demonstrating. apparently they burn for up to 2.5 hours!

Wife and I were at a KOA this past weekend and coming out from the fenced in dog area. We heard a real rukus.... like someone grading the limestone roadways. Actually, it was a Cedar Creek pull behind that was inadvertently being used as a single disk plow! He had his tongue jack down as he was driving out of the park! It was bent back and digging a trench, throwing gravel and making a horrible amount of noise. I would have tried to stop him, but he was across a field from where we saw it happening. He must have heard or felt it because he did stop up the road a bit and got out of the truck stood at the front of the trailer shaking his head and looking befudled. I don't think he was going to be simply hitting a button to raise the jack at that point. We walked away, but I would be that he had to get tools out and remove the bolting and stow the bent jack in the truck bed for the rest of the trip.


What a simple thing to forget and ruin some of the memories of a great family weekend out in the camper :-(


Then on I-79S on the way home I pulled over to attempt to offer support for a GMC3500/5th wheel. Turns out his WV based truck that was pretty old had horribly rusted brake lines dropping down from the brake master cylinder and he blew the hard line coming out to feed the front calipers. While he was jamming himself in there in an attempt to pinch the line, he moved the other one going to the rear brakes and got it leaking.


He had no roadside insurance.... I offered him my sorrow and left him as he called a tow company to come get the truck, he was leaving the 5th wheel camper on the side of the interstate with hope that he could get the lines replaced and return and still have a camper waiting for him. Another ruined family trip.

I have always seen people put screens up to block mud daubers but had never really noticed them before. I think that's what was completely covering the 15amp breaker on this pedestal:

I don't think Cedar Creek has ever made a pull behind.

This fella just cranked it up until it was level. Hard to tell from the pic but the tires are a ways off the ground.

That looks like the RV we saw at a KOA up here in Ontario. The guy had a couple of sons that did motocross and drives all over North America each summer to all the big events. The back wall was all trophies. Must have been 200 of them plus another 100lbs of medals. Really nice guy.

In the very early years they did make some TT, we were at the factory in April and they even had one there for a event and it was still owned by the same family. Cardinal also made a few TT years ago.

Looks like 2009 was the last model year that CC made TTs.

Lake of buyers.

Different but the same.. Sabre made TTS for a few years. They sold 1 or 2 a year. It just wasnít worth the effort to keep offering them.
