I did not understand how to replace the mantles in my Coleman gas lantern. now I do and will do it more carefully.

They could be on preparing you Dutch oven before camping.

Fix a tire

I do use online videos, however, along with a tremendous amount of good information, there is a great deal of mis-information out there as well. Some of it is downright dangerous. Think about what you are doing, consult various sources, and be careful.

Sometimes a video shows detail to questions you have. One of my first lanterns was flaming up, and didn't know why, or what to do. So I posted this on another forum along with my question. It was a simple solution, but wanted to know how to correct it. It was a spider web blocking the air tube. A classic problem, with simple answer, but at the time I didn't know.

To answer your post in a different way, Yes.

I have had problems with written instructions all my life, particularly if they are not clear and it appears to be an aspergers thing. Yes you do have to be careful as a good percentage is garbage but in many cases I find Youtube videos helpful.

This is the trailer that started it all for me. How ever I had never made one and mine no where touches this one.

But if you want to see a really rough out back type trailer this is the one. If you are thinking of making one for your 4x4 take alook at this one

I am known for looking at Australian trailers when it ends it will offer other plus it will show other video's to the left if you do not like this one.

This thing has won awards and been on the road for 10 years.
imagine your wheels never leaving the road.

mine shakes all the time I user a bungee net inside my trailer when I pull it to keep things down inside. But when you use a boat trailer for your trailer frame it was not designed to keep eggs together. :lol:

This one offers a jack idea, kitchens that I wonder what the history to them is.

When ever I am thinking of rebuilding, adding on, or making a new trailer I like to see what they offer at the down under. The offer some really nice ideas for trailers.

one more unit it is a tent unit but it offers table ideas, and lots of storage ideas.

there are many more that will come up for your to look at, too.

this is a prefab unit that rides on a utility trailer.

It's not camping equipment but it goes along with camping.
I've been self learning to play the acoustic guitar since last August using this course, justinguitar.com that has lots of videos.
This is the first instrument I've ever attempted to play and have no prior music knowledge.
I still suck at playing but it's something I enjoy doing. :D Danny

They say playing music helps your memory, I need to learn to read music .... there is a piano in the house. and a gi-tar too.

Camping is ment to be fun and you are in the right direction. As long as your music does not run the folks next door the wrong way. ;)
Nice new hobby. :thumbsup:
