    Camping Checklist

    I know I've seen lists on the forum before but cannot locate any of them. Going to a rally in the Dells this weekend and would love to see a list of what y'all take along for 1-up camping.

    I'm sure someone has and excel spreadsheet with a checklist.

    Thanks,
    Ski

    Rally Camping

    Tent, Sleeping Bag, cot, air mattress, or pad, small led light, head lamp,and flashlight, stuff to charge the toys , including jump box or the like. Chair, two coolers one to carry food and beer one small one to carry drinks and munchies to use while sitting around in your chair. Two or three day rally not much is needed in way of clothes what your wearing plus 1 extra set. 3 days in cool weather no need to shave or shower take some wet wipes .
    Important take a old fashioned church key, and a corkscrew, bmw people tend to drink beer and wine without pull tabs or caps that screw off so be prepared.

    Don't even need the coolers. Remove a saddlebag, dump in ice, and Bob's yer uncle.
    Has worked for me at many rallies....

    Wide-brimmed rally hat like my Tilley: keeps the sun off and is a good rain hat. Can pack in saddlebag.

    Nice list!

    For off-grid wilderness camping I also carry a Gerber ax to make firewood and use it to hammer the tent pegs in the ground if need be.
    Unscented baby wipes for personal hygiene is also strongly recommended when a shower isn't handy, although a jump in an alpine lake/stream can be quite invigorating....

    YMMV

    Bring a small roll of duct tape. It has so many uses.
