LOL terrible at that
may i suggest brushing up on the old tetris skills But no you should be more then fine. DH is from a family of 7 kids and his mum obviously they used to go camping every few years they had one of those tarago vans and they did it easy as. it seems abit daunting at first but it isnt
We take a set of plastic drawers to put food and eating utensils in.
I'd suggest camping somewhere that has facilities and a camping shop nearby so when you get there if you've missed anything you can go and buy it.
Something to sleep on (blow up mattresses are pretty good)
Something to blow them up with
Things to wash dishes and wipe surfaces
Games for the kids
Have a look at what other people have in their camp site to get some ideas. We are always snooping around to see what other people have. Our latest purchase was a camping washing line.
Shade is very important though, either a tarp or something similar for shade otherwise it's not going to be very nice.
So, do you wash clothes when you are camping? Or pack enough to get you through and wash it all when home??
sometimes we pack more then ample to get us right through other times we take a big tub and hand wash and use ropes for clothes lines. If we are going to powered areas we take our little camping twin tub machine.
We have a wagon and take a trailer as well. But we took motorbikes and all our motor bike gear camping with us.
We also use 3 eskis (1 for food, another for drinks and the 3rd for ice).
Cooking utensils, cutlery, plates, cups, dishwashing liquid, tea towel, paper towels, sponge, roll of toilet paper, torches and lanterns, lighter, insect repellant & coils.
2 bags of changes of clothes for us all.
fold out table
2x gery cans of fuel (for bikes and gen.)
blow up mattresses
Quilts (for extra warmth at night)
portable little gas cooker
garbage bags for cans and rubbish.
Box of water
Hmmm that's all I can think of right now.
We generally go camping for 4 or so days. Always a great time to get away from the city and be in the middle of no where and just focus on us as a family.
