    I've been driving paid for vehicles since 2009. I now am able to live in a paid for house. Being debt free is worth anything you have to give up to achieve.

    jimlj replied to a thread Gas-Oh-Leen in Our Town

    I have to disagree with the sentiment of never putting cast iron in hot coals. I use mine in/over hot coals most of the summer. Either in the back yard or out camping. You haven't lived till you've had a good meal cooked in cast iron in the great...

    I think Lodge's factory applied seasoning is a fairly good start, and I wouldn't bother with anything else other than a bit of oil and use it. The more you use it, the better the non stick seasoning becomes. Camp Chef makes a seasoning oil that I...

    Reading this and other posts here remind me how good I have had it most of my life. I grew up in eastern Washington. Dad had about 80 acers with a "creek" running through it. I say creek but it was actually larger than several rivers I'm familiar...

    jimlj replied to a thread Cold camping? in Our Town

    jimlj replied to a thread Cold camping? in Our Town
