I guess I am a car camper
Lot's of good ideas in this thread. I like to camp at camp grounds. I have never just backpacked it in the woods. I would like to experience that one day. But for now, it's usually campgrounds and I will be pulling my Jeep so no travel trailer.
I have an old Gander Mountain tent that has one working door, two storage bins (one for dry food like chips, buns, cookies, etc, and one for my tarps and stakes), sleeping bags, air mattress, and my parents cooler
I will be adding to my gear throughout the year. Like I said in my OP, my next purchase will be a portable grill. I love charcoal, but LP is just a little easier and quicker (and cleaner). Any ideas on this grill?
