    I have been progressively trying to consolidate my setup now that I am mostly solo camping. My setup is almost down to one box for everything so it's easy to just grab and go after filling up the cooler. To further decrease the load I am looking to get a smaller stove setup. The Coleman fold and go in this link is my front runner right now but still searching.

    Also picked up a Big Agnes Frying Pan SL2 tent for cheap during an REI 30% sale. Couldn't pass up that deal and now I have a compact tent for the motorcycle also.

    Wally, I am looking to do similar, move from RV to out of the Runner. Simplify. I have read that those new butane powered stoves are the ish. I do not have a link though.

    I have read up on those also. They are nice and there are some that can handle butane and propane. The problem with me is I am already so setup for propane, I have bottles of it, as in many bottles.:facepalm: But they are worth a look and the butane canisters are fairly compact. Let us know if you pull the trigger on one and post a review if you feel like it. An yes simplify is the goal. :thumbsup:

    Figured after this recent road trip I would show the 4Runner homeless option. Not a lot of people know about it.
    IMG_20190312_142133122.jpg IMG_20190312_142247017.jpg

    An here is a great pic from the trip.
    IMG_20190310_194323171.jpg

    I have attached a screen to the back window, it's not refined so no pic just yet. Also have a curtain for the back window. This system works great for stealth camping

    It's a great way to camp when you don't want to pitch a tent

    What can I say? My maturity level is pretty low most of the time.

    I like my Kamp-Rite tent cot I picked up a couple of years ago. it's incredibly bulky but comfortable to sleep in and sets up pretty much anywhere. I also got one of those REI roll top aluminum tables and that thing is awesome.

    Somewhere in Canada on a trip to Alaska in 2015. Mine on left, my brother's from Cabela's on the right.
    .
    Just outside of Canyonlands in 2016.

    For sleeping bags. I can’t say enough about Big Agnes. I have the Lost arranger 15 and a dual person 30* bag. What I really like about them is the bag has a sleeve for the air pad so it doesn’t slide off as you move about at night.

    Only one complaint really. They coated the main tent layer with heavy waterproofing, which means that if you sleep with all the windows shut you'll wake up to a condensation shower. If it's looking rainy at all I leave all the interior windows open under the rain fly. that helps some but I usually take a towel with me to wipe it down in the morning if I have to sleep with it closed up.
