Checklist for Camping

We are gearing up for our first camping trip this weekend. Half the fun for me is the planning. When you go camping you want to have everything with you. Most campgrounds have small camper shops where you can pick up ice and wood. Everything else you need to bring. We stuff our car full of stuff. This year we are taking two cars since the kids are taking their bikes plus we have 4 small dogs going with us. It’s going to be a crowd.

    this is a terrific list. I’m not a big camper but we are hoping to borrow our daughters travel trailer this summer. This list will come in handy. I invite you to share at the Thursday Favorite Things blog hop ( tonight through Sat at midnight). xo
