Talking Wow

Hey, thanks everybody. I got some good ideas for a couple things I hadn't thought of. I do have a big camping list but I know there are always little things that I forget or didn't think of. Heck...I forgot the beer and girly drinks!!! lol Some one also posted something that made me think of glowsticks for my kids. Thankfully I am not missing too much! Thanks again.

Condiment packets for cookouts (it beats going to the trading post each trip)
Lysol
Pizza cutter (I just didn't know how useful that was going to be until I brought it!)

I am definitely going to print this list out and modify mine. Thanks so much!
...forgive me, but what were the uses of the pizza cutter (other than cuttin pizza)....TIA!!!

Teflon tape in case you get one of those "middle of the night" plumbing leaks. It can be a good temporary fix

Don't forget extra alternator, power steering, etc. belts, antifreeze, volt meter, jumper cables, stop leak, and of course the all important tool chest.
We had our alternator stop working on the way to The Fort and had to use the jumper cables to jump from the coach batteries to the running battery.
On the way home, we had a belt break and punch a hole in the radiator. Luckily we were still on Disney property and had extra antifreeze and a belt on board. We were able to limp the unit back to The Fort.
I guess the main thing to bring is a husband that knows how to fix it when it breaks.
Seriously, we all have lists and each time we make the journey, we always add to it.

Holy cow! My house wouldn't hold all that stuff, but it's a good way to assess your own needs and prioritize.

Water filter.

Wine bottle opener! Have had to knock on a few doors before.

Extension cord.

Broom or small dustbuster vacuum, even if tent camping. The sand is aggravating.

Table cloth.

Clothesline and clips.

We are booked for Dec. 19-26. I have a Ford Fiesta hatchback & will be purchasing a roof bag carrier. My husband, daughter and I will be tent camping. I've been trying to scour these forums. I would include these items:

Lights for your bikes I plan on getting the cheap head lights from the camping section and using these attached to bikes for double duty.

I bought a heated mattress pad for my daughters single air mat on clearance yesterday for $13.00.

I also plan to bring an elec. blanket. That way I'm covered for possible cold front without packing loads of cover or bulky sleeping bags.

I haven't seen rock salt on any list. Rock salt added to an ice chest should keep ice longer.

If anyone has any advice on rooftop bags I would sure appreciate any input. I've always used a truck until now --- BIG difference!

thank you all for the ideas and entertainment. We will be tent camping with the cub scouts in November and I was going to start my own packing list. Now I have a great starting point to work from. No electric stuff for us as I understand the cub scouts camp at the primitive site.

My first post!

It isn't even Christmas and I am already planning our June 2-10 camping trip. Oh yes. Fort Wilderness tent camping with my wife 3 daughters (14, 10, 5) and one son age 3. For this reason alone, I believe beer will be number 1 on my list.

I think I will keep refining this list for awhile. I think I might love planning for my trips more than my trips!!

For June you'll want an air conditioner and rain gear!
