Being spontaneous is fun, but a little bit of prep work makes the difference between a road bump and a road block. *Coming Soon!
The van came with stock back door panels that were flimsy white pasteboard. For our first major update to Jet, we decided to replace those with real wood and a design that would be sturdy enough for a second Lagun bracket.
My friend Matt agreed to help make our idea come to life, so on a gray Saturday in October, I went to his house with plywood and high hopes. A few hours later (and two trips to the hardware store) we had our new panels.
We are lucky enough to have a camper with solar power, a fridge, and a sink, so cooking on the road is pretty easy with the right tools, the right prep, and the right attitude.
I do a good amount of prework to make meals that much easier. Who wants to spend all their camp time at the sink? The mini skillet is a great addition and at only 800 watts, it's a pretty good trade off of hot food for a little solar power.
I also like multipurpose foods like salsa, hummus, and (vegan) cheese which are great on their own and awesome as ingredients in dishes.
