RE: Avion truck campers - Hundreds of photos

D1, I tried to send you a message - I guess it didn't get through. We hope to leave Illinois on the 15th of April and get in Terlingua, Texas, on the 17th or 18th. In the meantime I'm starting work on the cab over next week. I'll write it up with photos. Spoiler alert! I couldn't get the Coosa board for less than the ransom for the Ayatollah Khomeini. Not only is it expensive but the freight charges are almost more than the board. So.....hold on.....it's marine plywood. If anyone is interested in hanging out with the Avionistas, send a note to one of us - probably Rastaman - and find out where we'll be for the caravan to Muley Point after Terlingua.

Its time to make some decisions about the meet up. What dates do you all think make sense? Last part of March? April? Lets do this.

RE: Avion truck campers - Hundreds of photos

I’ll have a better idea when we return to the US next week, but agree that April is best. We’ve been out there in March as well, and that can be great weather. I’m thinking about Muley Point and either time is good. I’m hoping that Cajunavion joins us and cooks one night. D1 what’s your favorite camp food? Also, Rasta, we’ll bring along some baby bourbon from Southern Illinois.

RE: Avion truck campers - Hundreds of photos

I’m traveling in N Africa with my wife, daughter and son in law. I like the food but I was thinking about chili in Terlingua. Specifically fireball chili that was part of the cook off. If my fellow Avionistas are agreeable, after Jerk Chicken from Rastaman, I’ll cook chili. Karl Bock, also known as Chef Mojo: Here ya go. This is the basic recipe. There’s quite a bit of improvisation involved in getting it to your personal tastes. This recipe will give you a fairly spicy pot of chili. Don’t be afraid to experiment. 4 lbs. of coarse (chili) ground chuck 2 medium sweet onions, chopped 6 cloves garlic, chopped 6 heaping Tb. ancho chili powder 6 heaping Tb. chipotle chili powder 6 heaping Tb. cumin powder 3 Tb. fresh ground black pepper 2 Tb. dried thyme leaf 2 Tb. dried oregano 2 26 oz. containers of Swanson Beef Stock (NOT broth. Stock.) 2 12 oz. cans or bottles of good lager beer. Salt to taste Place the chuck, onions and garlic into a large pot and turn the heat on to medium high. Get the beef rendering and browning, breaking it up as it cooks. Do not drain the fat. Trust me on this. When most of the beef liquid is cooked out, add all the spices and herbs and stir it in. Let it cook some in the fat, but be careful not to scorch the mix. Add the stock and beer, scraping the bottom of the pot. Bring to a boil and set to simmer. At this point, you have a choice to make: How “wet” do you want the chili to be? By this, I mean how much fat do you leave in? Remember fat = flavor. You may skim after some simmering time, but I leave it in. As the liquid reduces, it becomes easier to emulsify the fat into the liquid by stirring. Simmer slowly for at least 4 hours, adding more water or beer if it gets to thick for your tastes. Also, there’s no beans in this recipe. This is old school Texas Red. No tomatoes, either. Yesterday I did it with beans. I added 2 drained cans of Goya brand pinto beans in the last hour or so of cooking.

Well Rasta, seeing that you’re towing people may ask for a discount.

RE: Avion truck campers - Hundreds of photos

Cajunavion, you are absolutely correct. Perhaps we need to appoint a spokesperson who can make an announcement whenever crowds appear, as they inevitably will. If we don't get a firm structure in place I can imagine a mass melt down at Muley Point....like the Day of the Locust.

That’s what I like! Long range planning!

RE: Avion truck campers - Hundreds of photos

We were in Big Bend after a stay in Marfa several years ago. It was around Thanksgiving. Made a TR as the snow flew at Cottonwood Campground along the Rio Grande. This venture will be epic. From Carbondelay (©) Illinois to La Rasta Terlingua to Muley Point. Not for the faint of heart!

Rasta, well said. I went looking for Cajunavion last week in NOLA. Lets hope they show up in Terlingua. Meanwhile my cabover looks like it might take until next Spring - just in time for Muley Point. D
