Question by Leoprasy: Camping essentials with my girlfriend?
Going camping with my girlfriend in a few weeks for the first time for both of us and just wonder what things we are going to need. I don’t want to get there and think ‘we should have brought that’. Thanks for any help.

Answer by ninja
depends on what type of camping you are doing. Are you backpacking or just camping at a camsite?

When my husband and I go camping at a campsite, this is the stuff we bring:
- Tent
- Tarp
- Rope
- Air mattress w/ pump
- Sleeping bags
- Pillows
- latern
- Extra small propane tanks
- Camping stove
- Cookware
- Food/water/drinks
- table clothe for the picnic table
- Dish soap/scrubby pad
- Games
- Cook stove
- Matches/lighter
- Flashlights
- Extra clothes
- Fire wood (or if you want to buy it there or find your own)
- Cooler (with food/drinks)
- Eating utensils (paper plates, plastic bowls and plastic spoons/forks/knives)
- First aid kit
- Stuff to play at the river with (we camp by the river, so we take tubes and stuff for that)
- Hatchet to cut wood with

However, if you are going backpacking, you will want to pack much lighter:
- tent
- Sleeping bag
- Extra change of clothes
- Food (possible freeze dried to save space)
- Matches

    Make sure you take comfortable toilet paper. And Tylenol, because there are going to be headaches. I still forget something each time. Good luck and have fun!
