Microwave oven for boondocking

Thinking about having a gasoline powered microwave oven installed in my Escape so that I can have microwave popcorn on movie nights while Boondocking. It should complement the gas powered blender I bought last year for making margaritas.



That reminds me, I gotta check the batteries in my carbon monoxide detector.

Will you be soaking in your portable hot tub while eating the popcorn, and watching your movies?

Is this the Tim Taylor model? I would have gone with the motor from a Husqvarna model 576XP chainsaw. Lot more torque, easy starting and improved emissions.

Yea, got an order in for the hot tub also. I am going with a wood fire powered hot tub though. This is the one I picked:

Looks like one of Jim B's rocket fired campfires.

We are a little more laid back than that. Creating a comfortable atmosphere is number one on our list. Usually on movie nights, we will invite some of the neighbors who are camping nearby to come over and watch also. I have found that having a portable 120" big screen tv really makes for a real "move theatre" ambience. We always make sure that we bring along a few good Disney movies for the kids to watch.

I have been a geek since before geeks were cool.
