Tomorrow, my girlfriend and I are going to a hike in campsite for the first time! We do plenty of car camping, but this will be more rustic. I’m looking forward to it.
It will be great to get away for a couple of nights and enjoy the outdoors. Plus it will be interesting to carry everything we need on our backs. Usually when we go car camping, we have a big tent, big cooler, grill, extra blankets, chairs, and plenty of other stuff along with us. This is fun, but will be nice to see how a minimalist trip turns out.
We were able to find most of our gear used on craigslist so we managed to save a ton of money. Plus this way, if we hate it, we won’t be out much and can probably resell everything for about the same price.
Here is my super cool camping list:
Forks – plastic
Knives – plastic
Clothes to wear
Dry fit shirt
Longsleeve dry shirt
4 steaks (two will stay in cooler in car)
2 pounds green beans
10 strips bacon
Almonds, walnuts, raisins, bananas
1 pound cheese
Coffee – Starbucks VIA
Beer/Pop in the car
Probably too much stuff, but good for a first time out. Have a good weekend.
