Hello there Lampie. Welcome. Did you do the artwork for your avatar? I like the bright colors.

It means that shelf stable foods will involve you canning or dehydrating food yourself or (this is where the chemicals come in) purchasing shelf stable products, a lot of which contain preservatives I personally don't want to eat.

There are folks that offer foraging classes that may help you suppliment pantry items. Probably won't help in winter though.

I was given my online moniker - Chief Longwind of the North. at least partially by a good friend. I live in Sault Ste. Marie, MI, just accross the river from Sault Ste. Marie, Ont. If you're ever in the area, give us a holler, and maybe we can fire up the grill, you and yours, and me an my DW. We are in our late 50's, and so might have a few years on you, but hey, a kindred spirit is a kindred spirit. Glad to see you here on DC. You'll like this place.

Seeeeeeya; Chief Longwind of the North

**SHAMELESS PLUG**

Been doing some Crayon and Color pencil work the past week, so far, my favorite one:




My Second:





***END SHAMELESS PLUG***


I plan on going out and getting some watercolors for the desk work-space, but I use to do a LOT of acrylic work. SO easy, pretty forgiving, and cheap(depending on the canvas).

Do you work with any more mediums?

If the van doesn't have a converter make sure you get a portable one or a plug in 6v-110 one so you have 110 power. You can use a variety of small appliances like a crock pot etc. and charge stuff up too like a battery blender. You could cook dinner while you drive. Cheaper than propane too. Xantrex makes some good portable ones that can jump a dead battery,fill a tire,play a crappy built-in radio or run a 110 appliance or the like for quite a while. I would consider both. I use an old plug in one from from a previous laptop and it can handle 13 amps I think. I carry the Xantrex when we travel. I have jumped alot of dead batteries that were in camp spots that a second car could not get to.

Another camping tip is to always know the nearest hospital to your destination before you get there and directions. We tend to use this alot while on vacation it seems. Somebody always gets hurt!

Hey! BTW.

Welcome to DC! I'm in SE Ontario (rural Ottawa). Love Lake Superior--Thunder Bay sounds like a good place to spend the summer...I'd probably head south for the winter!

I've done some work with acrylics (not much, I had to do a painting for a story I illustrate)


I've also done a bit with watercolour - I use it as a background & ink over top of it
