We have done lots of remote camping over the years throughout NM and Colorado, but have travelled across the country. NM is a big state with lots to see and and we've taken many Friday to Sunday trips. A few years back I left behind one of these....

I had moved it under a tree and when the weather got really bad we broke down camp quickly and it just got missed. When I travel alone I mentally keep track of everything. Before the kids moved on and they camped with us it was a little more hectic.

The good news is that it was a remote spot and only about three hours away. I took the Jeep back during the week and it was still under the tree.

We used to joke about leaving the kids, but always made sure they were tied up in truck bed safely.

Those were the reasons I used to convince my wife to marry me.

And no, I don't use antiseptic soap to wash my hands either, just plain soap is good enough. I never bought into the bacteria free life, #1 - it ain't possible and #2 some challenge to the immune system is needed to keep it healthy. Yes, do practice safe food handling and keep things clean with good old soap and water but to agonize over what an outdoor, public piece of furniture may or may not have had on it is a waste of time.

Several times we have been going down the road and see a oncoming RV at "Full Sail" (TV Antenna up) and in one case in "disaster is about to happen" mode (Satellite dish was still deployed! )

Flashing lights, waving hands toward roof and, in the case of the dish a quick U-turn to chase down the errant motorhome were to no avail...the overpass beat us to the RV

The Satellite dish impact with the overpass was MUCH more spectacular than we imagined; we were SO sorry for the other motorhome. It deeply imprinted on us the "put the dish DOWN" mantra!

As for dangelies on the crank, we do not have to crank down the TV antenna any more (it's Electronic) the Satellite dish, OTOH could well be a...issue. So we hang our old antenna dangelie on the tech cabinet

(Why, yes, I am Former Air Force as a matter of fact )
