Camping Games for the Family

By · November 30, 2012 · Filed in Conversion Van · No Comments »

Camping in a conversion van is the perfect family-friendly vacation for those who are traveling on a budget and would like to get away from the stress of everyday city-living. At first thought, children may feel uncertain about camping if it means that they will have to be away from the technology that they use in everyday life. It is important to assure your children that there are still many different ways to have fun together without gaming devices, televisions and electricity. Camping is a great way to spend some quality time together without any distractions. These family camping games give you some great ideas of just how to have fun while out in the wilderness.

I Spy
The classic game of I Spy has been a family favorite for ages. Children and parents will use their thinking and looking skills to determine just what the other one has “spied”. One family member will start off the game by saying, “I spy with my little eye, something..” and then choose the color of the thing that they are thinking of. This object must be something that is clearly visible to all players. For example, if you’re thinking of the sky you may say, “I spy with my little eye, something blue”. Players will then take turns guessing what you are thinking of until one is correct. The player who guesses correctly will then have their turn to spy something. This game is a great way to pass time while taking in all of the things that are around you.

Scavenger Hunt
Plan a scavenger hunt around your campsite. Create a list that each member of the family will receive. Each person can have the same list or a list with different objects on it. These should be things that are commonly found while out camping such as different sizes or colors of rocks, types of leaves, sticks, creatures and more. Set a time limit for the scavenger hunt and send everyone out to start looking for their objects. Small children should always stay with adult so that they do not get lost. The first person who collects all of their scavenger hunt items is the winner. This camping game provides lots of fun while looking around to see what everyone was able to gather up.

Hide and Seek
A game of hide and seek is always fun for the whole family. When playing it in the wilderness, be sure to set boundaries so that children do not wander too far away from camp. Select the first person who will be the counter and have them cover their eyes while the rest of the group goes to find hiding spots. This may be behind a tree, inside a log or in the tent. Let your imagination run wild while trying to find a hiding spot that they are sure not to find. Take turns counting and hiding and see what kind of silly spots you find your family hiding in.

With multiple screens in the conversion van, everyone from the front passenger to those in the very back have a front row seat to the movie and can enjoy it while on the entire ride.

Having a surround sound speaker system in your conversion van is an excellent way to enhance the experience of watching a movie in your conversion van. However, headphones for each person or a normal sound system work great too.

Hooking up Wi-Fi lets them search the internet, connect their video game consoles to the internet for playing online, watch movies online, watch sports online, do research for their homework or an upcoming test and much more. The possibilities with a Wi-Fi connection in your conversion van are truly limitless and you can give your passengers the best entertainment options with a Wi-Fi connection.

Get Ready for Tailgating!

By · September 27, 2012 · Filed in Conversion Van · No Comments »

Tailgating can be a rewarding experience for many sports enthusiasts and their families. While tailgating can be a lot of fun, it can be difficult to prepare for an outdoor sports event or a tailgating session. The following guide provides simple tips and tricks on how to tailgate in a conversion van.

When looking to tailgate, it’s important to make sure that one has access to the right supplies. This includes a portable grill, radio, television, food, drinks and games. In addition, it’s a good idea to have a variety of seating options available for friends and family members.

Some types of vehicles, like conversion vans, may have a built-in generator for powering appliances and other electronic devices. However, most vehicles don’t have a separate generator for powering electronics. While the alternator in a vehicle can be used as a temporary source of electricity, it’s not a good idea to leave a vehicle engine running for several hours at a time.

Fortunately, there are many portable generators that can be used when one is tailgating. When choosing a portable generator, it’s a good idea to find one that will provide at least 50 percent more power than one thinks that he or she will need. In many cases, appliances will require a surge of electricity when they are first turned on. If a generator is operating at full capacity, it may not be able to provide this peak power necessary to turn on an appliance or other electronic product.

In addition, it’s a good idea to choose a portable electric generator that is as quiet as possible. While a loud generator may not be a problem in a work environment or in a rural area, a loud generator can quickly become a headache for many individuals, their families and other people tailgating nearby. In some cases, using a generator that creates excessive amounts of noise may result in an individual being ticketed for noise pollution. To avoid these types of issues, it’s a good idea to choose a generator that is as quiet as possible. In many cases, it’s possible to buy a generator that has a muffler on the exhaust. This can be a great way to cut down on noise pollution.

It’s also a good idea to invest in a canopy to protect oneself and one’s family from rain. In addition, a canopy can be a great way to get out of the heat of the sun. Since some tailgating events can last for several hours, it’s a good idea to have access to a shaded area.

In addition, it’s a good idea to bring games to play while tailgating. For example, games like lawn darts, horse shoes, beer pong and other social games can be a great source of entertainment for tailgating events. With these types of games, it’s possible to become the life of a tailgating event. However, it’s important to remember that one should not drink and drive at any time.

The Flintstones in a Chevy Conversion Van

Dreams are funny things. INVENTORY2
I have had dreams about things that I haven’t thought about in years—ex-wives, former co-workers, old cars—I even dreamed once that I was a star in the National Basketball Association, with my zero vertical jump and my 9.0 time in the 40. Talk about fantasy!
The dream I had the other night left me shaking my head, but also got me to thinking. It was about that long ago animated sitcom, the Flintstones. Now I haven’t seen the Flintstones on TV since the early 70s, but in the dream there I was, right alongside Fred, Barney, Wilma, Betty and Bamm-Bamm. I have no idea where Pebbles was—must have been her nap time!
Anyway, here was my thought—what would the Flintstones have thought about the Chevy conversion van? They would have been loyal customers at Dave Arbogast Conversion Van Depot, that’s for sure. Fred would have loved the customer service, the way Arbogast makes customers feel like family.
Wilma would have liked the amazing selection of Chevy Conversion vans, new and used. If you remember, Wilma liked to spend Fred’s money, and she could do that at Dave Arbogast. The vans are priced to sell, and because of the large inventory, the Flintstones would have found the perfect van for a price that would fit into their stone-age budget.
New and Used Chevy Conversion vans have great safety features like dual air bags and child Safety locks (to make sure Pebbles and Bamm-Bamm stay where they are supposed to be!) Other features include remote start, 24 hour road assistance, a full sized spare tire and cruise control. It’s safe to say that the Flintstones had never heard of any of those features.
Moving from Fantasy to reality, it’s easy to get started on your conversion van adventure.  Call 1-888-436-3216 and talk to one of our van experts today. The whole process can be handled over the phone and by email if you prefer, and Dave Arbogast can deliver your van to your driveway. Don’t be stuck in the Stone Age any longer—call Dave Arbogast Conversion Van Depot today.
