Camping is one of my favorite things to do every summer. Now, I am not the kind of person to "rough" it. I need my showers and toilets. We use to tent it. Then we upgraded to a tent trailer. Finally we got a motorhome. It is an older one but it gets us there (knock on wood). We don't spend much time in it but I do enjoy having a toilet, AC, TV, beds, fridge... and all the little stuff. However, we did just fine with out all of that. I want to share with you some of my secrets and tips with all of you.... make your camping experience a successful one where you and your family will want to do it every year. Not only that but the other campers around you will be walking by your camp spot admiring your site. Yes... it is true... when I go camping we have people just walk by to see our site. Can't miss it at night. Lights up the whole campground. :) You don't even need to be hooked up to any electricity!!
- Battery Operated Strand of Lights (plug in if you have electricity). You can find these lights during any holiday season. Usually have the most during Christmas. You can even use Solar Lights but I notice they don't produce enough light. Also make sure they are LED. They last a LOT longer and are brighter. Hang these from the trees, inside your tent, on your shelter. You wont need a lantern and bugs aren't attracted to them.
- Radio (we use a wind up radio that you can find at almost any camping store... also works great when power goes out at your home)
- Table Cloth & Bench Cover. You don't know who and what has been on that table and bench. Protect it all! Table clothes you can get anywhere. By an extra one and cut in half (length wise) use the same clips that you use for the table to hold it down on the bench for the seats. Now your tushy is protected.
