Eating outside

Recommended Posts

The other night my wife and I were figuring out dinner and we had a hankering for a Summer meal. We decided I'd grind up some sirloin and make burgers with fresh tomatoes, sweet onions and home made fries. When we sat down at the dinner table we momentarily discussed eating out on the deck. It looked nice and sunny but it was a little cool. We decided to wait a few days, now we have 8 inches of snow on the deck.

Even though it's more of a hassle we eat outside pretty often. Makes things taste better for some reason?

Probably 3-4 days a week when we have good weather, I'm eating outside. I just don't like being inside when it's nice out.

As long as its not raining we generally eat the majority of our dinners outside on the deck in the summer. Our deck is shaded by early to mid afternoon so its comfortable even when its hot outside.

luv eating on the deck..hate the wasps..i inspect everywhere and spray but they still hang around..seem to love the southern exposure..wish i could find where they are nesting..i have found the usual spots...do they just get attracted to the heat generating off the house? i sit and watch them but cant find where they are coming from...just bounce off the house and move on...

we have problems with them late Summer into Fall. If you put some mountain dew out with a few drops of dish detergent in it they will land on the soda and drown. You end up with a disgusting glob of Wasps and Mt Dew but at least they are dead and not trying to eat your ketchup off of your plate.

I cook outside regardless of the weather, but much more enjoyable when it's above 40deg. If it can be cooked on an stove or in an oven, it can be cooked on a grill. It just may take a little more effort.

On a side note - Eyeguy - just curious if they sell men's sunglasses where you bought yours?

We love eating outside and eat out pretty much every night on the patio so long as it isn't windy or isn't much below 70. I cook outside all year. The grills stay outside all year. And I'm really digging my egg style cooker these past few years for using the lump charcoal when its freakin cold out. I made myself a fancy grill table two years ago. I took a $40 6 foot long work bench from Menards and stained it and it works wonders to put everything on.

    • Funny now 10 years later I will add to this discussion.  I have a 2010 Warrior 1890.  It looks awesome still with no hazing or cracking.  Livewells, hinges, seats and bases, decking, carpet, all looks great.  I started with a 115 and had a warranty replacement and went to the 140 Suzuki.   It is the best boat I have been in next to the 2090.  I like Lund pro Guides and Alumacraft Navigators when the water is flat.  I like the Ranger 620 tiller minus the layout and the same for the 618T but...The 618 in big rough water with that 90 will wear you out and have you fighting all day.  My 1890 tracks like train.  The storage is ample, but also logically laid out to distribute weight.  Pro Tiller steering makes driving in the roughest water a breeze, but also on those 15 mile runs lessens fatigue, but the real difference is just the power to go up and down in really big rough water at any trim at any speed you need.  The Warrior hull also handles that huge water great.  The only thing I hate about the warrior hull is without trim tabs it likes to lean so its another dent in the pocket book for trim tabs - that is the only knock I have.  And now in 2020, Warrior is adding market share and once again Ranger has dropped the tiller.  Too bad, with a center rod locker and better storage the 620 tiller would be a perfect rig.
    • I was thinking the  smaller beds for the kids. You would still have two beds in the back roughly 7’ long.  There are two issues that you are going to contend with on your design. #1. I’m afraid you are going to run out of room for your door unless you go 17’. #2. I’m not sure where you are going to put the holes unless you’re willing to only fish 6. 
    • 🤣🤣 funny............based on some of the posts here sounds like an outing with eyeguy, Rickg, icehawk tom sawyer......and a few others!!!!!!😂😆
    • Ive given some thought to how I'd build a future wheelhouse and this topic is something I've debated.  Ive used houses with bathrooms both ways and the added privacy of the outside entrance bathroom was nice and overall I think we all preferred that.  The big down side is any late night bathroom needs.  You'll have to know your audience on that one and determine how big of an issue it is.     If you do go this route and opt for no heat make sure to put an extra hook on the wall on the heated portion for you to hang your toilet seat to keep it warm.  That will make the family love you a little more.   I do like the modified floor plan laid out above.  If the bunks are short that could be an issue.  I'm 6'4" so need a long bunk but how tall are the kids?  Could those bunks be dedicated kid bunks and you get the longer bunk?   The only thing in that modified plan you may want to look at is the hole placement in front of the front bunks.  Depending on the frame your working with you might want to move the hole over to the right a little to move it away from the bunks a little.  Right now its placed squarely in the middle of the only place to access the bunks.  If you plan to use rattle reels at night I could see someone jumping down from the top bunk and not having a good place to land without ending up in the hole.    I'd for sure give some thought into squaring off the front V and putting 2 longer bunks up front.  Maybe plan for a jackknife sofa up front and a dinette in back.  If you go the route of squaring off the V put some thought into how you could best use that space you'd be losing.  
    • Bucket and a bag mostly for me. I really don't like to empty the chemical toilets after use so I'll probably avoid that. We tend to just cut the top off a gallon jug and use that overnight but I don't think the Mrs. would love that the occasional time she'd come with so true, that's a plus on for the inside accessible toilet.
    • @mnbuckhunter what are you using for your thunder bucket?  The smell thing is sometimes hard to avoid but can be minimized.  A powered roof vent fan used while a person is in there will help.  I’ve heard some people going the bag and bucket route put saw dust in the bag - cedar if you can get it helps a lot.  We just use a chemical toilet with the blue deodorizer in the water.     All this said to get to my personal preference to have the throne accessible from inside in order to save those overnight trips outside for a quick shake n go when it’s 20 below and breezy.
    • My brother went of of it and it was fine also.   I watched several trucks use it and one wheelhouse used it as well.
    • I saw that Trophy Hunter before and liked that idea a lot....and I like your modification a lot too. The only problem I've had with that look is I think those end up being 6' beds and being over 6' I've had a lot of problems trying to sleep in a 6' bed. Otherwise it'd work for sure. The other way I was thinking (original post) would allow for nice long beds. And maybe some kind of bottom double on both sides. I don't love the idea of loosing that much space in the V but maybe I could build the heater and storage into it somehow? The no heat would probably be ok. And maybe I could run a duct into it if I really wanted heat depending on where the heater end up.
