    We just got back from a week in FW, so I thought I would add some items. It REALLY helps to have a list. For the first time in I don't know how many years, we weren't going to the Settlement or Meadow Trading Post for supplies, or worse, Super WalMart on 595.

    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!

    If you're staying in the cabins you could bring ice cube trays.

    When we stayed at the cabins we noticed that you may want to bring a few more pots. and also serving bowls they only give you like 3 pots and one serving platter.

    I haven't been out this year yet but am going this weekend. Beer, Beer oh yea, beer! Other than that a cooler for the beer that can go onto the boat!

    Really, bug spray, a lighter stick for the camper and another for outside, I like to start my campfires with flares. It really works if you failed girl scouts. It will start wet wood.

    I like to bring precooked foods so all I have to do is heat it up. Spag and meatballs, potato packs, etc.

    A jacket for at night and jeans and more bug spray. Extra batteries and white gas.

    'knock, knock', "can I borrow some ice cubes?" :rotfl:

    I know something I no longer can be with out

    Sudoku and Kakuro puzzle books.

    If anyone was at WDW in Feb/March 2006 that was me in the lines working a Kakuro puzzle..it really help pass the line standing time.

    This list is great considering I forget stuff on every trip.

    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:

    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.:thumbsup2

    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.
