I'm curious to know how some other campers do some things like condiments and what not. It seems that whenever we camp our mayo, mustard and other stuff no matter how small a container I buy is left over. I am a bachelor and don't cook too much at home so between trips these things may not stay fresh.

This is going to sound chincy but I have been getting some small packets like mayo, catsup and mustard from restaurants and keeping it in a bag I can put in the house. Things like those small containers of Smucker's jelly and honey seem to make sense for those of us who have a small camping family. I just hate to see a whole bottle of these things go to waste and have to buy more. I keep the Splenda, Equal and sugar in a bag as well that I put in the house.

Coffee stirrers in the plastic wrapper are good from Mickey D's and I always get a few moist wipettes from Sonny's which are a great thing to have anywhere if you don't have a place to wash up before eating.

I got blasted on my thread about parking in the overflow lot the night before we checked in so I hope nobody filet's me on this. I don't like take handfuls from 1 place. I usually get 1 or 2 at a time so it's not taking too much. I just don't ever see these things in Costco or whatever to buy like this. I think we're all familiar with how things like this don't keep well in a closed up camper that sits in the sun. Any other ideas???????

I, too, collect lots of individual packets for camping. I've also found a neat site that has lots of individual packets available. I ordered some of the medicines from here, too, and they come in handy without having to take everything in the house!

Here is the site:

We call them flare thangys Boy Scout matches. And they work great.

Battery chargers!

Cell phones, walkie-talkies, digital cameras, etc. will not last a whole week at Disney without some more juice.

...and for all us fellas. DO NOT forget the remote for the television. I've done that a few times and it makes me furious. Sorry ladies, it's a guy thing.

We too take small packets, but we usually ask the waitress if we could take some extra packets and they have never said no. They usually look at us like we are nuts for asking.

We have a couple of rubbermaid containers that hold our camping stuff....our bug spray, plates, spatula, TP, laterns, radio, trash bags....etc. They're always packed and ready to go! The only things that aren't in there are our roasting sticks (too long to keep in there), the tent and sleeping bags. Before we go camping we will double check to make sure we have enough of everything in there but for the most part we just grab and go. And anytime we find something new we need we just add it!

A couple of things not on the list; tin foil, a small dustpan and broom (the little ones for sweeping up the pile of dirt off the floor) to get the dirt out of the tent, and games (we have a Jenga knock-off).

White Drinking Water Hose

I didn't see the white drinking water hose listed. Maybe it should be added.

Great site. Thanks.

One thing I do when camping (not necessarily at FW) is mix salt, onion powder, pepper, garlic powder and anything else you like into one small shaker, then you have all the necessary spices together. It works well when you're carrying stuff on your back.

Ear plugs

We were at a large, popular private campground this weekend, and even with the AC in our popup I could still hear music, dogs, people, hammering on friday morning at 7AM, etc. I am a sound sleeper but it's hard for me to fall asleep with certain noises like music or tv. After 2 days of not sleeping well I remembered the ear plugs packed away in our "medical stuff" drawer.

Also, don't forget your pots & pans like we did. I took them out of the popup when we went on a school trip with meals provided and forgot to put them back in for our next trip. The only thing we could cook was hot dogs!

Crock Pot

Electric Skillet or Griddle

Crazy as this sounds.... a small microwave (if you have room).

Small Portable Gas Grill (for those of us too impatient to use charcoal)

We've also packed a small fridge. It comes in handy to keep the beer & margaritas (er...uh...soda) in!!

Coming in a tent? Bring a FAN!!! (it gets hot in Florida)
