{ planning a camping trip }

At the present moment, I have a girl-crush on Mother Nature.  Usually by this time, I am cursing her and the heat she brings for summer.  But not this year.  She has spoiled us down here in the valley of the sun. 

But that doesn't mean one doesn't need to plan a retreat to the mountains for a little R&R.  I'm so excited!  I'm a camping girl.  I love camp fires, nature walks, and being away from all the hubbub of life.  I love it all...

Except for the planning/packing part.  I'm ALWAYS forgetting something, or not planning completely.  So I decided that for this trip I would make up a checklist.  And of course I'll share it with you! :)

Here's a part of what mine will look like when filled {except with much worse handwriting}:

And now I have plenty of time to fill it in as I think of stuff, and I'm not trying to rack my brain AS we're packing up the truck.  This is going to be HUGE for me.

So what things do you take on your camping trips that most people forget?  Any tips or tricks?  I'd love to hear them! --xoxo

No tips. Planning is overwhelming for me too! I always have to plan to leave a couple hours early than needed just so I don't get too stressed.

Good luck with your trip. The rest sounds great.
