I was happy to snag a water front campsite......but it was wooded.

There was a nice bath leading down to the water and an opening to the water...but no way no how would I find my way back after kayaking. So I made a buoy with what I had.....I dumped out my ionized water jug and dug out my standard trailer hitch.

Didn't "see" any bears....bought I saw a Deer and a couple of Raccoons.


But these things were all over the place....and not shy.

I stole someone's idea from here on the forum... with the suction cups and some PVC pipe.

Makes a great towel rack. [emoticon]

Excellent ! Thanks for the report and the pictures. Looks like all the hard work on the trailer has paid off big time.

Hey #1nobody, Nice photos. Glad your first trip went well. I think the PVC pipe suction cup towel bar was my idea. I posted pictures of it a long time ago. As they say "imitation is the highest form of flattery." It's nice to get some feedback on an idea posted here.

Having 2 chairs in the picture would get some people in trouble [emoticon]

Always wanted to do kill bear. But sandbanks is our place of choice for extended trips.

Btw where did you see the towel rack idea?
Do you have some more Pics and where did you get the suction cup?


Final notice from MasterCard. Good! I'm sick of hearing from them.

I saw it here on the forum.

Basically a couple of suction cups from the automotive area of Princess Auto....and a piece of PVC 3/4" pipe.
