HONEY, YOU FORGOT THE...

NO MATTER HOW MANY CAMPING TRIPS YOU GO ON, OR HAVE BEEN ON, THERE IS ALWAYS THAT ONE LITTLE ITEM THAT ELUDES YOU. WOMEN, HOW MANY TIMES HAVE YOU FORGOTTEN THAT SACRED LITTLE ROLL OF TOILET PAPER? WELL, THE FOLLOWING IS A LIST OF AS MANY ITEMS THAT I COULD THINK OF THAT ARE A MUST-NOT-FORGET, OF COURSE, WHO KNOWS HOW MANY TRIPS I WILL HAVE TO GO ON FOR IT TO BE COMPLETE!

Forget this and you'll be apologizing to the tree whose leaves you pull off!!

Yes, we all wish we could bring the whole house, but a nice tent from Coleman will make you feel right at home!

While you're over at Coleman, be sure to pick up a lantern, bugs like to go camping with you, too!

A flashlight will guide you through the woods when you've gotten to your site a little too late and need firewood!

We all want to sleep on something as comfortable as our own bed, and if you can't bring the air mattress, a Cascade thermarest sleeping pad will be your best bet to ward off a stiff neck in the morning.

I got a Peak 1 for my birthday, and now I finally have enough room for my snacks and toiletries...o.k, and maybe some useful stuff, too! You can find some at Campmor along with lots of other STUFF!

If you forget the warm clothes, you can count on getting to know the person you are with VERY well! Some favorites are: wool socks, sweatpants and shirts, a nice wool hat, mittens. The best way to keep warmth in is by wearing something on your head and feet. Of course, if you plan to camp in the snow, well, I would bring a fireplace!!

Although I have never been mountain biking, I am told it is real fun, so if you have the opportunity, strap on the bike, at least you'll have better luck getting away from that

crazy bear!
