I wouldn't be carrying it around. As long as it fits in the car, I'm good I can't use trees in the sites I've reserved and at most sites I've looked at.


Ugh - I mean camping trip, not hiking. I'm going camping with them. I've been hiking before. Stupid.

If you're car camping, a lot of that gear could be replaced with a bouncy castle.

If you went camping, and woke up with your pants down and Vaseline on your bum, would you tell anyone?

That would be embarrassing, having gotten the field expedient treatment for constipation after eating too much trail mix and not drinking enough water.

I've got all my camping trips planned for the year. Most are 3 days and 2 nights. There is one that is 4 days 3 nights, but I am staying in an airbnb 10 minutes away from the park.

There are a couple hike in sites and mostly drive in sites. I've emailed the parks about bringing a hammock on stands as long as I keep them on the tent pad for the drive in sites.

I have an intro to camping class coming up in a couple weeks. I'm also taking a stove and water filter class, and a AT food class.

I'm getting excited!

Just remember you don't have to be an expert right out of the gate, a lot of people are still bumbling along at the third turn. Knowing enough not to get hurt is sufficient.

That's why I am not going to the back country

I know how to survive hiking, so that's good - lol. The good thing is that there is a definite check out time, so I am assuming that if you don't check out, they know something went sour. I am also planning on telling them that, too, in case it isn't assumed.

You'll be fine. It will be fun.

Here's a tip I don't know if I mentioned before. Ear plugs. I have trouble sleeping when mice or squirrels are scurrying around in the woods. You hear a rustle and lie there trying to figure out what it is. I sleep much better when I don't hear that squirrel 100 feet away. Or even rain. Rain is so freaking loud in a tent.

Good idea! I'll add it to my big old container of "camping schtuff"

But then you won't hear the swamp monster or bigfoot sneaking up on you.
