|Kids always like to play with fire. We have specific rules and try to enforce them diligently.|
|Joe uses leather gloves for cooking over the fire. He finds them much safer than quilted pot holders.|
|This is Joe at our cooking/clean-up table. It's a lightweight roll-up table from Cabela's that's very handy for traveling. It gives us extra space to prepare food and wash up afterwards.|
|Our hand-wash station. Since we generally camp in primitive campgrounds, we have to provide our own "plumbing."|
|This is the newest addition to our camping gear. This style of tent is notoriously leaky in the rain, but it's spacious. The three oldest girls were able to share the left room and the next two girls the smaller room on the right.|
Joe tries a new primitive skill, cooking with moss.
Cheap grilling pans.
For a look at a different kind of primitive camping, Joe documented our cabin camping trip at Glendalough State Park several years back, in part 1 and part 2.
