|What necessary gadgets to you pack along for a camping trip? Do you keep your gear packed in one spot year round? Or do you have a checklist so you remember what to take along?|
|When Marti and I were going camping a lot we got three totes...one for dried goods and one for eating utensils, dish rags, biodegradable dish soap, 50 feet of cotton rope and clothespins, and the last one for cooking utensils: skillets and pots and pans, long handled forks, spoons and spatulas. In her truck bed we built two cabinets from the front of the truck along the wheel well and used that for canned and bottled goods, the other side was for tent, lanterns and coleman stove.
Down the middle we used a special made mattress for her to sleep on and I slept in my van that was also made up with a special mattress. My van carried the totes with our clothes and bathe towels, soap, and lotions.
It was wonderful to camp our for 2 to 3 weeks each year and whenever we could get away for a few days at other times.

That's exactly the kind of information we need here. Thanks for posting. We don't camp but the lake we live on has campgrounds. I always find it interesting to see how people rig up their little spot. They are all friendly and enjoy telling their camping tales.
|Hi Ladies, I'll be back to post. My hubby keeps a camping list and last year we bought a used pop up camper. I'll see if I can find the list and then explain our set up.
Lavonee, totes are awesome for keeping things organized
|One of the reasons we looked forward to getting a pop-up-camper was so packing and unpacking would be easier. The following kitchen supplies are permanently stored in the camper either in a cupboard or a tote stored under the seating cushions:
Hot Pad Holders
Wine Bottle Opener
We basically took things out of our cupboards at home that we either no longer use, or had duplicates of.
And here are the cooking supplies that we keep in the camper for the season:
Baking Soda (for the fridge)
Something that has come in really handy is this bucket:
On a camping trip last month my husband and I met up with some of his family and we supplied all the meals. This bucket made "setting the table" at meal times a snap. I just threw in napkins, utensils, plates, and seasonings/condiments people would use for the meal and sat it on the table. After the meal I toted it back to the camper put things away and then could use the bucket to wash dishes.
|What a great idea for camping . . . like the bucket idea.
DH actually want to go around the corner here on the lake and camp out over there. I told him to go ahead and I'd wave at him across the lake.
|Arlene you are funny!|
|I camped in my young early married days and really enjoyed it. Now . . . no thank you. To humor him I may have to buy a tent and go over there and do it. Just a thought!|
