Clutch’s deep thoughts thread...

We had one of those cabelas camp kitchen things. We found it packed down to big and heavy. Took up too much way room. So now we just use a plastic folding table like the one you pictured. The chuck box is a nice addition. May have to look into one of those.

It is a campmate kitchen. Those little 24X48 folding table are great, have like 3 or 4 of them. Plus a couple 24X72, which I'll bring if I am staying long.

While a bit on the big side, it setups super quick. And strong enough to stand on while I am putting up the Wildernest.

Have a single burner back pack stove as well, when I don't want to bring the chuck box.

Bit janky, but it fits in the Wildernest...I don't really cook per say, but just heat up ready to eat food and boil water. Cooler sits on my foldable moto stand.



Better picture of the moto stand.

I'm trying to fill a gap, lol. I don't want a POS glamping trailer, but what we have just isn't quite cutting it right now.

My wife doesn't like the "camp for a week with minimal amenities/showers/clothes".... But she's not a prissy queen either. She just wants a toilet and a shower whenever she likes. I really can't fault her for that.
I have those!

It is a 5 gallon Lowes bucket and a stainless 5 gallon mash pot...but hey it works! :D

We have a camp toilet that we use all the time. It's just a plastic pail, with a cheap toilet seat lid on it that cost maybe $15? She'll spend a good hour setting up tarps and an area for using it, including building rocks up around the bucket.

After battling tarps for a couple years, bought an Outback Privy', sets up super quick. Buddy's dad brings a foldable handicap toilet seat to put over a bucket, which we make fun of him for it....he says yous SOB's make fun of me now just you wait! Sure enough...

Definitely gonna get on one of those. I think that's maybe half the problem for her?

It is kinda nice, well once you figure how to fold the damn thing back up.

Has a reflective material on the inside, so it will retain a little bit of warmth. Worth every penny on those brisk breezy days.

There are pockets on the lower portion that I toss rocks in to keep it from getting blown away, rarely have to tie it down.

3M 1080 vinyl wrap. Never used it so not sure how it will go. I have seen some good results online with people using it.
Cool, thanks. Me being old school, my first thought would be to paint...I forget about vinyl wraps. Looking forward to your results.
 
Dropped off some wheels to knew owner about 85 miles away. Filled up and decided to pick up a draft on the way home. Even after dropping the draft, sill almost 20mpg. **



** - previous manual checks have shown this to be fairly accurate.... still no new truck. 😁
What kind of truck was the pic from? Looks to be a Super Duty? Gas? Diesel?
