Question Just what do you take?

After living full time for nearly three years in my trailer, I will shortly be embarking on my first camping trip.

It will be a short one, just a weekend.
Since I was carrying my entire life, the trailer looks really empty. Other than cups, silverware, dishes, food, water hose and power cable what do I really need?

Just take the items mentioned above, and a hundred bucks to buy what you forgot.

You'll have a great time.

My list is probably an odd one since I tend to boondock. I carry a generator, folding picknick table (a pain to load, but sweet to have) and a portable propane camp shower.

The camp shower allows me to use creek water for showering while maximizing the fresh water in the AS. Between this and general conservation minded use I can get about 10 days out of the tank.

Satellite radio, tons of paperbacks, field guides, a really good lawn chair, decent fleece, a good hat, a handy table for next to the chair, field glasses, a good mindset.

Food, water, bicycles, clothes, a book or my iPod with several movies in case we get bored. Holding tank treatment, first aid kit, toilet paper, soap, shampoo, toothbrushes and toothpaste, bed linens, towels, MAP.
Meddle not in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy, and taste good with ketchup.

I always go thru my day mentally, getting up, what will I use, going out, what to wear, what to eat, what will I use as I do everything in my day, and then go thru what I might need in emergencies, and then don't forget the beer! That technique usually gets everything I need, packed. And don't forget the cat treats or your name will be Hairball!

I can already hear your cats yelling, "Catfood! Don't forget the catfood!"

If it's to be, it's up to me.
