So the 2nd camping trip of the year included the entire family. Was hoping for a bit nicer weather but with a 1500 square foot tarp not much ever gets me wet or cold. At almost 4 Wyatt's one tough little kid no bitching, just dad "I want my hatchet back so I can cut wood just like you"[36]

Crapy tire had 1500W (thats 12 amps, which is basically 1 circuit in your house, for the non sparky's in the crowd) inverters onsale so I grabed on and a new battery, Rocked the heating blanket at night but forgot the space heater.

The entire park was empty, just my family and a buddies family. Some coons fighting each other for an empty kids drinking box, and some crazy asians walking there little football punt dog on Sunday morning.:dontknow:

Lite snow on Saturday, crazy ass windy over night. Snow line at harrison is about 400m-500m for those that want to know[cheers]

used to annually camp there as a young in, tons of good memories there. Do they still have the amphitheater and stuff for samsquatches?

The boy and friends would camp up there when they were little.

Nice pics. Looks and sounds like your raising a tough little guy! How much draw does the heating blanket draw? The old lady just looked over my shoulder and saw you had one in the bush......looks like I'm going electric blanket shopping lol

On "everything" that plugs in Canada there is a watt rating. "most" electric blankets are around 180w-200w or 1.2-1.8 amps at 120vac. Heaters draw alot

So the $15 inverter that plugs into you truck will work, but like everything it's better to have atleast twice what your drawing.

FYI crapy tire puts the big inverter onsale about every month
