Going Camping? Don't forget...Pt. 1

Okay, so me and my little family have been camping for a very long time. My husband and I started off with a tent in 1999 after we got married. So I guess you could say we were "virgin" campers. So, over the years we've collected lots of things for tent camping to try and make it more comfortable. I thought that I would compile a list for those of you who may be just starting out.

Don't forget...
  1. The tent
  2. Tent pegs
  3. Rubber mallet for pounding the pegs into the ground
  4. Tarps! Very essential part of camping. While tenting for 10 years, I think it rained every weekend that we went. Rather than give up on tenting we chose to embrace the rain and avoid wet sleeping bags.
  5. Rope for the tarps. Yet another essential if you want to tie the tarp to a tree.
  6. Sleeping bags and air mattress.
So, this concludes part 1 of "Going Camping? Don't forget..." I will add more in a few days.

God Bless & Happy Camping



  1. are you going to write another post??? Maybe about how your trip was, or you could keep a blog while Geoff is away about how your days are without him.

  2. Sorry, I've been a bit busy and kinda forgot to blog :s

    I do like your ideas though, I'll try blogging about not having Geoff around
