Hi folks, Hoping to stay at some national parks this summer and Walmarts on occassion. Any advice you can share about generators? Is it worth the investment? We'll be on the road for seven weeks going from eastern NY to Yellowstone Nat'l Park and around the 4 corners there and back. I'd appreciate any recommendations on a quiet generator that we can purchase and also advice on how to fuel it, run it, etc. etc. Complete newbie with this area and appreciate your experiences and good thinking.

You will learn to conserve electricity. Like your coffee pot. You can make very good coffee on the stove top with a stove top percolator or what we do with a Melitta coffee maker you can buy at many grocery stories. It is a V cone shaped plastic with a filter. You heat water on the propane stove and pour thru the coffee filter into the cup. I think the coffee is better than a Mister Coffee and it is very easy. It also makes no noise and you can wake your wife up with a steaming cup of coffee rather than the sound of the Mister Coffee. Gets the day off to a great start. You can conserve electricity in many different ways. Make a game out if it.
