This is such a great idea for camping!
For my daughter and son-in-laws birthdays (which are really close together) we gave them a tent. It was one of the things on their wedding registry that they were really hoping to get, but didn’t. So, we tucked away the idea for a great birthday gift! It works out especially great since both of their birthdays are in June!
We found a tent we liked but my husband was worried about the review concerning the tent floor being like a tarp and how it might or might not last. To me, it sounded like a normal tent issue. I suspect that the review was written by someone who doesn’t do a lot of camping.
The Tent Camping Hack
I saw this idea for a camping hack to use foam blocks to help your tent floor last longer. Also, so much nicer to walk and sleep on. This is the perfect idea for helping a tent floor last longer. Still needs to be swept out and dried out before being folded and tucked away, but I imagine this would make camping a little sweeter.
We aren’t huge campers and rarely go! I so want to try this!
Then, I saw this amazing wood looking foam blocks on Amazon! I love the idea of going camping with a faux wood floor for my tent! Maybe that is silly, but what is life without a little silliness in it?!
More camping things I love
These roasting sticks are easy to travel with! They are telescoping and so they condense to being smaller and are easier to pack without being in the way. My only concern might be with younger children who might bend them, but for older kids and adults these are really great!!!
Camping is always a little better with some conveniences! A camp chef is great cooking things that are harder to do over a fire, like pancakes!
As a kid, when we would go camping my dad had his Coleman lantern. It was filled with oil to burn. I loved the smell of the lantern and it reminds me so much of camping. However, as an adult I prefer a battery powered lantern. No worries about enough oil, oil being spilled or the lantern tipping over unexpectedly.
I don’t know about you but the ground is really hard! I prefer a good air mattress or cot!
