Re: First-times from Sydney, Australia looking to share an R

Sorry I think my last post was a little misconstrued not to sound rude but it was an offer for a lift back to Vegas not a place to crash. That said if you wanted to put tents outside and have the use of fridge. Ac. Toilet etc it could be a possibility

Don't know what us canned food is like but I would sooner eat dried food rather than some of the canned food you get in the uk. Plus the dried stuff keeps you fuller for longer

Help please easy to construct shade structure

Hi all I was just wondering what would be the best form of shade structure for me to bring.
As I'm traveling from the uk it will probably be best for me to pick something up when I touch down state side.
As I'm traveling g Alone and have a rv what sort of thing would others sugest.
