    My buddy Erik and I are talking about grilling steaks on Friday. Just in case anyone is debating about what to eat at camp. I build a mean steak fire. :)

    Anyone will be welcome to throw whatever they want on the fire as well.

    Damn fire grilled steaks!


    I was thinking about Saturday night at the campsite with some Steak’umms on toasted tortillas using the Coleman griddle after a few cocktails around the fire.

    The wife said to take the smoked sausage and a giant pack of hot dogs and showed me the giant bamboo rods in the camp gear... she said easy clean up .

    Thats why i have these a lot. All i need is water to heat. Super easy and when you are done, all you gotta do is clean the spoon / fork.

    Yup. Almost too easy, as I just realized that I've barely cooked at camp in the last year. The freeze dried meals have been too easy and tasty.

    We still have a lot of booze leftover from our wedding, so we'll have plenty of whiskey on tap for all... haven't thought about food yet...

    I was planning along similar lines and picked up a few backpack meals.
    The wife was talking about bringing some Hot Dogs or similar

    I treated myself and bought a real soldering iron when I did mine. I’ve been struggling with the same crappy low wattage radio shack one since H.S.

    less chance of a branch knocking it down if it’s welded on! ‍

    I started with one, and I can hear people fine, but my range for responding was limited, so I invested less than $200 and got a full-length antenna and cabled it back through my sliding window, under the rear seats, and into the CB. For once my PTT recieve AND send pass the signal strength test.

    I still need to tune it, though...

    What kind of antennas are you using that require soldering?

    Also, I totally agree that a decent soldering iron is worth every penny! I bought a nice one a few years back for soldering LED tape lights at work and it's so much better. Now I also have the Milwaukee M12 soldering iron.

    The cable I used doesn't have the Pl-259 connector pre-attached which makes it easier to run through the vehicle including the existing hole in the back wall of the cab.
    It's the center conductor that required soldering.

    https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00EARXF06/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o02_s02?ie=UTF8

    Surprisingly 18' of cable just made it to the front of the console.
