Well, a box really.

No, this isn’t talking about some type of apocalyptic scenario — I’m not expecting Zombies to attack at any given point. (Though I suppose I would be prepared for that too)

This is just getting the stuff needed for a comfortable camping trip near at hand. If by chance you get a nice weekend to happen, wouldn’t it be nice to just pop something easy in the car (or motorcycle) and hit the road.

As it stood today we have our camping gear spread over nearly half-a-dozen big boxes. Most of it isn’t really needed for your run-of-the-mill camping for a day or two. We have stuff for the long haul. We have stuff for the longer haul.

But we don’t need that at a moment’s notice.

From here out (well, when we get back) we’ll rearrange to make it just a box of gear and a box for sleeping bags. (Don’t store them compressed. We have two sets: warm and cold — so two boxes)

  • Cooking stuff
    • Stove
    • Fuel
    • Pots / pans
    • Plates, etc.
    • Eating implements
    • Spices
  • Tent
  • Sleeping bag
  • Sleeping pad
  • Camp chairs
  • First aid
  • Fire-making supplies
  • Bear spray

Really, how much more do you really need?

(Yes, I’ll bring electronics too… it’s my gig… or failing as it might be…)
