Camping and being one with nature! No convenience camping for us...

Play outdoors - Adults and Children alike! Our excursion to Colorado is filled with excitement and adventure! As an alternative to convenience lodging, we filled our vehicle with camping equipment. As avid camping folks, we know how to pack and keep it all in one place, the number one rule.

Researching campgrounds that have shower facilities are a must, although if primitive camping is in order, we have a handy dandy Coleman shower complete with a shower curtain placed around a hula hoop.

Choosing to camp "roughing" it, is not so rough, when you plan the essentials to take! Everything fits in a small vehicle trunk. That gives our precious border collie the opportunity to enjoy the entire back seat. Just wonder who enjoys the trip most! Give her a lake and she is the first to jump in - wish that were true of bathtime!

Essentials:
Tents - two popups one to store our stuff and the other to sleep in.
Sleeping bags
Coleman stove
Coleman shower
Tarp
Small Grill top
Cooler
Skillet, coffee maker, utensils, paper products (no plastic)
Lantern, flashlights, kitchen matches, rope
Rain slicker (cannot say how those inexpensive slickers have save us from getting drenched).

Play outdoors is for everyone!

Из удовольствий наиболее приятны те, которые встречаются наиболее редко. Самые, лучшие духи в маленьких флаконах. Отдайтесь вашему делу всем сердцем и душою, но посмотрите прежде всего хорошее ли это дело. Разумный гонится за тем что приятно, а за тем что избавляет отнеприятностей. Вся Россия, это пьющий Гамлет.
