and really wish you hadn’t?
Toilet paper, toothbrush, toothpaste, soap, shampoo, cooking utensils, condiments (olive oil, salt & pepper, ketchup, mustard…) sharp cutting knife and a pair of scissors, can opener, bug spray, towels, extra batteries for the flashlight or whatever else you have that runs on them, sleeping bags/pads, a small altoids-type box with some boy-scout waterproof matches and some cotton balls, plastic tarp for under the tent (which has gone missing?!) a deck of cards or Bananagram in case it gets rainy
I forget every single time to bring a brush and pan for the tent floor. Every single time. It might seem unimportant but, if it rains, you do get mud in and dirt during dry days. Thankfully, we had only one short rain in the night…all cleared up by the morning
Another thing to pack is plastic bags to carry away your trash/recyling deposits or anything unmentionable. Be sure to leave nature looking as undisturbed as when you arrived.
Most people would be surprised on what they can get by without…
Hubby’s idea of camping is in a tent or RV at a state park with a nice restroom within walking distance. An electric site. And a round of miniature golf 😀
The idea that hubby doesn’t want to camp doesn’t appreciate nature is incorrect. All it means is that he doesn’t like to camp, not that he doesn’t like nature.
Even thought bugs love me, I wouldn’t trade a night under the stars with a light summer breeze stirring the branches of a tree for a ventilated A/C concrete block. Anywho, I do appreciate the beauty of nature
…and lace knitting, every chance I get.
Happy crafting and keep those creative juices running!
