At the end of August we are going camping with a whole shwack of families from the "little hamlet of loveliness"
do we all fit in our little 3 man tent? no.
do we need gear? yes....everything from cook stoves/coolers/stuff.......
So for all you camping folks out there: What is your favorite, must have camping item?
It has been years since we last tented it.....hmmm....pre-kids?? (I know, I know....but seriously...4 kids+moving+renovations+homeschooling=VERY busy!!) We are determined to be fully outfitted so that we can make camping a regular event...at least a few times a year. I find it kinda odd that we haven't been in so lone...Adam and I both LOVE camping/ kayaking/ canoeing/ hiking.
First on the list: a tent that will endure weather/many ups&downs/ruff and tumble kiddo's and big enough for our growing family (8 person)
my thought: Big Agnes Flying Diamond 8 Tent
a bit more $ but it seems super durable and I can order it the Mountain Equipment Co-op.
hmmm...okay outdoorsy folks...I need your expertise!
