Here are some summer-time gadgets to make for an Awesome Camping Trip. I am ALL about creating experiences which will make lasting memories.
This is a Must Have list aka things I want to beautify my cozy cabin! This list is an afforadble list- generally under $25… so you will not find a tent here. However, who needs a tent when the back of a truck bed will do. < Yeah, that’s going on my Bucketlist 😍
MUST HAVES- TENT EQUIPMENT: I love new camping gizmos that can help make the experience more delightful. As simple as light, a cute rug or a warm chic blanket these create an overall gleeful trip.
MUST HAVES- HIKING GEAR: Survival is the name of the game when venturing out on a hike. Whether it is a mild stretch or scaling a mountainside, you should always be well prepared.

MUST HAVES -FISHING TACKLE:
MUST HAVES -KITCHEN GADGETS: I love to cook over the open campfire flame. The sweet smokey flavor that absorbs into the freshly cooked food is one of my favorite camping experiences. I love to create delicious, easy to cook, camping recipes. But let me save you from one of my horrible camping whoopsies….. I forgot the spatula. Ughhhh…. However with a piece of cardboard, tinfoil & a knife, I created my own handy-dandy spatula for our kitchen needs. It did work…. but I am sure if I had a kit with all of my utensils it would have not been forgotten.
I am obsessed with this Enamel Tableware Set. Not only with the blue color, but the style is perfect. It just screams “Take Me Camping” & this 4 Person set is UNDER $20!
My morning is not complete without my hot coffee off the morning fire. These mugs can withstand the heat & keeps my coffee warm.
Some of the metal grills that are over the firepits are sub-par…. & tinfoil doesn’t always do the trick to help cook your food. For a clean, effortless meal, the Camp Griddle is my go too. Trust me, Bacon + tinfoil = mini grease fire & burnt bacon 😦
This is our first year with this Egg Holder & I am beyond stoked in so many ways. In the past, the eggs never seem to stay cool, because we try to place them at the top of the cooler. And then later in our camping adventures, eventually the egg carton becomes soaked from the cooler which turns into a mess. Egg Holder- Please do not fail us this summer.
MUST HAVES- FUN & ACTIVITIES: Remember that you want to create everlasting memories. Camping is a freedom from electronics & the social world. It should be a connection with your family/friends & making fun in the present moment. We always bring games with us- such as Uno, Yahztzee, a pack of Playing Cards & I always bring a game that has a twist- like Bean-Boozled or Doritos Roulette. These always seem to be a hit & great for any age. Reaching into a mystery bag trying to determine the flavor, creates a lot of suspense & laughter for everyone.
MUST HAVES- FOR THE FUR BABIES: Sometimes our Furry little friends get to go on trips with us as well. Be sure to bring plenty of food & water for them.
