The list author says: "This is a car camping list. It isnt about weight, size, coolness. It is about comfort!!! Car camping is meant to be relaxing! Ok, so not everything I have that I used came from Amazon. But here is a list of stuff I love to use. Just add food and beer! Dont forget TP and firewood!"
"Love this stove, my uncle has had one for 28 years and it still works. It runs and colemen white gas or unleaded from your car...no propane tanks needed! Its a classic that has proved itself for years!"
"Family camping starts with a good tent that is big enough if the weather is bad. I like eureka because they make all the military tents. It was between this or the Columbia..columbia has bad support! This tent is big and heavy...takes 2 to setup!"
"These put out a lot of light and you can use the same fuel you use for your Coleman dual fuel stove! They will last a long time!! I have the apollo on my list too but it cant put the light out like this can!"
"These are for car camping only...they are rectangular for comfort. They are rated for 30 degrees but you will be cold..40 is ok. These are not an expedition bag either they are cheap and for early fall, late spring and summer. This is not a cold weather bag! Perfect for family camping when it isnt too cold out!"
"This has everything you need! Pots, strainer, cups, bowls, dishes, etc! You can make mac and cheese, soup, omelettes, bacon, pancakes, etc! This is the ideal set, just add a bigger frying pan and you are set! All this stuff nests sooo perfectly! I love it (Have the Pinnacle it is really nice!!"
"Awesome for foil dinners, add potatoes, onions, oil, mushrooms, peppers, chicken breast, and garlic! Set it on the fire and away you go! Foil packed meals are great and fun for the kids! Oh and dont forget the baked potatoes!!"
"This is optional but if you hike..these are awesome! Waterproof, rechargeable or AA, great range, NOAA. They arent the most user friendly and the range is nowhere near 36 miles. But outside 2 miles is gonna be in. None of these two-way FRS/GMRS will do more than that so pick one with the options you want and go with it."
"I dont know why people carry flashlights for camping trips anymore. Headlamps are so much easier and work far better. They have a flood light and a spot...oh and now they have a red light option if you dont want to disturb anyone for a middle of the night trip to the bathroom. Bright and hands free! I use this at work as well!"
