What-I-Carry-Wednesday: Adventures in Car Camping Gear

I've got a car camping trip coming up, and I figured it was time to start building out a gear list. The good news about car camping is that you can pretty much bring the kitchen sink. The bad news is, it's easy to bring the kitchen sink and still forget essentials.

I love the simplicity of a backpacking gear list, where you're forced to whittle the items down to the bare essentials. With car camping, not so much.

Still, my trip is just a for a weekend, so I'm trying to keep the list as compact as possible. Though, I'm not going to give up the opportunity to bring along a book and a hammock, with the intention of doing some serious chillaxing.

Look it over - did I forget any essentials? Like, maybe a kitchen sink?


  1. How about those towels you mentioned a few months back

  2. Ahhh, yes, the Lightload Towels.

    That's actually what I bring along instead of a bandanna. And I've got one in my altoids-tin-urban-survival-kit-thingy, which I'll bring along too.

    Good catch!
