I thought I was done with the hints for truck camping, but encountered gusty, swirling, strong winds in New Mexico.
The shelter had no wind block. Cooking in the wind was driving me crazy until I pulled out the runner rugs from the back of the truck.I know it looks ugly, but it is another hint …. a doormat and a bungee cord. It worked like a charm with 45 mph gusts. I first tried blocking the wind with an umbrella, but it kept blowing off the table. I tried putting the stove on a table at one side of the truck. Great until the wind shifted, which it did multiple times. This rug solution works consistantly. When the wind is extreme I can envelope the stove and make coffee, soup and fried veggies. Sweet!
I may have more hints as I discover more solutions to common problems. I did think I was done ….
