The Big Tent!

I woke up to another beautiful day .. got up and got around and headed to the last RTR seminar.  It was on cooking in a van, propane/butane stoves, solar oven, pressure cooking, thermos cooking and etc.


Bob showing how his solar oven works


Lori showing how to steam or wet back with a regular cooking pan and a round cake pan


Once the meeting was over, I hurried back home and got ready to go into town to the Big Tent RV Show.  We’ve been looking forward to this event!  It’s the big hype of Q.


the entrance to big tent


as you can see the place was pretty crowded with people


this guy has a pretty easy job .. he gets to stay in bed!


We didn’t find anything exciting inside the big tent for us.  We were actually a bit disappointed as we had the impression we were going to see the newest and best of the last RV gadgets out there, but we didn’t see anything we hadn’t seen before.


there are several booths setup outside around the big tent and we toured them.  We did find a couple things to add to our collection.  Hubby got a new sewer cap and some kind of meter. 


This tent was neat looking


I found what I wanted!  Wouldn’t I look cool driving around Lake Willy in one of these?


the problem was there are several that I liked and although the white one was my favorite. 


I’ve been wanting a sign to hang outside our RV and I found a place that makes them .. but…… wow those things are outrageous.


Hubby promised once we got back home he would get his dermel tool and make me one.  He better, he promised and since I’m such a tight wade, I agreed to wait.


they had lots of tents with some great food .. this chicken looked so good but the line wasn’t worth it .. so we passed


we decided we’d stop by McD’s and get some $1 double cheeseburgers for a late lunch, then to get water and head back home to take the dogs on their late afternoon walk.  We have finally gotten some nice warmth here in AZ.  This is what I’m talking about, I even was able to get my t-shirt out and put it on!   Before we knew it the sun was going down and it was time to start dinner.  Hubby made chicken fried steak tonight and it was good.  We watched some TV and did some internet stuff and now it’s time to call it a night.
