But occasionally I car camp. And when I do I don’t bother worrying about items being compact, light weight, or particularly practical.
So when I car camp I bring along a few items that I would never consider back country camping.
Like a tent big enough for 6 people.
And a BBQ. In this case used very inefficiently to boil water for oatmeal.
And a lovely cooler of beers. The best part of car camping FOR SURE. Well, in my opinion. Maybe you guys aren’t big lushes like me.
And a suitcase.
I just thought it was hilarious to bring a suite case on a camping trip so I thought I’d share. When I started packing I figured – why not? I like this suitcase and it was the most easily available item. So now even my little suitcase has gotten to experience a camping trip.
What do you bring car camping that you wouldn’t dream of lugging on a backcountry trip?
