new camp table from camping world

Camp kitchen prep table and stove standI wanted to add a little flexibility to my outdoor cooking while saving my ancient back a little grief. I bought this table at Camping World recently and tried it out on a trip to Ft. Parker State Park. Setting it up in this configuration gave me a nice prep area plus access to the camp stove and gas grill. Just to the right of the grill is my sink and outdoor fridge. This setup makes cooking on the frontier a really enjoyable experience.

Please note that one the blue cloth is YakDriver’s latest homemade Green River blade. It’s the best prep knife I’ve ever owned. The blade is 1/8″ thick, so slicing is a dream and the high carbon steel holds a wicked edge.

Also note that the site was so steeply sloped that it took Lynx Blocks and door shims to keep the grease in the skillet. I used this same configuration at Brazos Bend State Park with great success. The sites are so level that I didn’t have to shim up the table legs.

IMG_1141No trip is complete without some of YakDriver’s black pot goodness. On this particular afternoon it was pinto beans with ham hocks, onions, garlic, jalapenos and chopped carrots.

We drove to Waco to visit the Texas Ranger Museum and Hall of Fame. I recommend this trip to anyone with an interest in Texas history. It’s probably the best organized museum we’ve visited and will probably go back again. The two hours we had available were not enough to really get the feel of everything they have on display. The movie covering Ranger history is worth the price of admission.


We hope to see you on the highway or at some soon to be disclosed location in Texas. Happy Trails.
