Going Camping? Don't forget...Pt. 2

So here are a few more things you may want if you are planning on taking a camping trip this summer.

  1. BBQ, very important if you wanna cook a hotdog or hamburger
  2. Propane for the bbq!
  3. A camp stove is useful
  4. pots & frying pans
  5. Utensils
  6. We finally broke down 2 years ago and bought a coffee maker to use on our camp stove.
  7. I find making a meal plan is useful (so you don't over spend)
  8. Grocery list with a budget.
  9. Flash lights, lanterns, glow sticks or whatever lights up. It can be pretty dark on your way to the bathroom.
  10. A quality cooler
  11. Camp chairs
  12. Something for starting your camp fire
  13. Cheap, disposable, table cloth for the picnic table
Research! Always ask your friends, who camp, what campgrounds are good. It's always nice to hear what others think of certain areas and campgrounds. Use the internet too, there are so many places out there to camp. Some good, some not so good.

Now, camping isn't for everyone. So if you are a first timer, please don't go out and spend a poop load of money on a tent. You'd be better off looking for a second hand tent (in good shape) and camping equipment. That way if you decide after one summer of camping that you don't like it, then you haven't invested a poop load of money into it.

So, this concludes my camping advice for now. Have a great summer and happy camping.
