preparation. We were too excited to fish and eat s'mores. Now, older and more conscious of comfort, it's essential to have the right stuff:
- A great hiking backpack. I use this one, designed specifically for the female body and there are so many hidden pockets that make for great storage.
- An air mattress is crucial and will be worth every penny. You never know what to expect when you set up camp. You cross your fingers for a nice soft clearing, but sometimes life gives you stones, sticks, and pine cones. Luckily, I have this little guy.
- Last, but certainly not least, the tent. I bit the bullet last year and bought J this MSR tent. It's light as a feather, packs up to the size of a loaf of bread, and sets up in 2 minutes.
- Other items to consider: camping pots & pans (don't forget the stove), portable shower, and of course, a bottle of wine (or two).
