Camping Trip Preparation

We’re planning a camping trip for the end of July, heading north to Brownwood State Park. I’m getting together our supplies and trying to decide what we need and what we want. We’ll be heading up on a Saturday and coming home on Monday. Our son will be taking care of the pets.

Supplies to bring:


Sleeping mat.

Sleeping bag


First Aid kit

Food and water – must remember to order gluten free graham crackers for smores.

Cooler and ice

Camp stove

Pots, pans, cookware

Dishes and silverware or plastic ware and paper plates, etc.

Cell phones – for emergencies and to take photos

Cell phone chargers



Toilet paper

Bath supplies – shampoo, soap, towel, washcloth

Bug spray



Rain gear

Is there anything else you would take on a tent camping trip? Let me know in the comments or get in touch on Facebook or Twitter.


Quick reminder – One of our freedom businesses is building niche websites. I started my first niche website using SBI about three years ago. It’s the site that finally earned some money online and encouraged me to keep going. SBI is holding a first-time ever summer sale, July 1 – 5, 2014. SBI and their WordPress plug in, bizXpress, are being offered at a 33% discount. You can find out more at the SBI Summer Sale website(Disclaimer – this is an affiliate link and I will receive a commission from SBI if you purchase from my link.)
