Awning out and anchored down, screen room kit attached with a tarp and rug on the ground. We were at the sugar beet harvest in this photo. In this configuration our screen room was more of a “mud room” ! When we came back from a 12 hour shift on

You’ve just arrived at your campground in the Rocky Mountains and as you drove the last few twisty road miles, you thought, “now this isn’t so bad ! What’s up with all of this talk about altitude sickness and vertigo?” Then, as you got out of your tow vehicle to
