Gear We Love
Consider searching this out at your destination. A grill makes for a full camping experience!
These are a must have for campfire nights! You can roast hot dogs and marshmallows all night long on these!
These are great for exploring. Give one to your kids (make sure you test it first). Then off they go!
Bring some of these solar or battery-powered lights and hang them around your campsite…instant style for the environment!
If you can find the set with connectors and headbands, you can make all sorts of wearable glow items – it will be easier to find each other at night!
These are a must. Get a fresh pack, wait for night time around the campfire. Pop one in your mouth and crunch/grind it with your mouth open. You are in for a surprise! Trust us 🙂
Put them on the back bumper – and hang bathing suits to dry. Just remember to bring them in before you drive away!
You can use this to charge your phone or run low-power devices on household (AC) current without running the generator or plugging into shore power. (More on all of that in your Adventure Kit!)
