I’ve been camping for 45 years now. Yep, my parents took me for my first camping trip when I was 2 months old!
My hubby and I continued that tradition by taking our kids camping since they were babies. They need a lot less “stuff” now but I still use my tried and true lists to get ready.
I’m getting ready for our first trip of this year so I thought I’d share some of my planning with you.
Make a menu for each day and write every thing you’ll need for each meal. (i.e. oil and spices / condiments / side dishes). Then you’ll remember everything plus know if you need a larger portion or smaller of something.
See ~~ vegies for two meals (bring lots) / mustard for two meals (we’ll need a bottle of it not just the take out package size)
TIP: Pack in water proof containers.
Every year at the end of the season I repack all the totes and take inventory. What’s missing? What did we not use? And replace it all so we’re ready to go the next year.
Here’s some more camping Tidbits that I posted last year.
Most important tip: Always leave your campsite cleaner than you found it !
Best tip: You never know it all. Here’s some of the ideas I’ve collected on Pinterest.
