Roughing it

Battery powered blenders rule by jeffreymcmanus.

Last weekend we did a fun family trip — we camped at Manresa State Beach, south of Santa Cruz, then on Saturday we drove down to Monterey to see the aquarium.

We took a lot of junk with us when we camped. It was a pain to lug to the campsite, but we used it all. Particularly useful was our new propane-powered camp stove (which we’ve been using to cook dinners out back on our deck at home) and a battery-powered blender which we used to make daquiris. We are living large in nature!
