Your list reminded me that I don't have copies of any documents. I'm making copies right now. Thanks for that tip.
One thing I haven't seen mentioned in the numerous threads about bob's (although I may have overlooked it) are the firestarter logs. Not necessarily
the logs but the small bricks of fire starter.
We went camping weekend before last and we took a couple of those and it makes starting a fire so much easier. It says to light the bag but I just
broke a piece off (maybe a third) and went with that. They're only about 6 inches long and maybe a couple of inches wide so, they wouldn't take up
too much room.
I'm proud to say, as a female, I set up the entire camp by myself since my husband had to work late. I packed everything, loaded, unloaded, set up
the tent (easier than I thought it would be), started the fire and settled down to a pretty cozy campsite. Now I know I can do it by myself if it came
down to that.
As for what I have, it doesn't add up to even a quarter of what you have.
I have a family of five and considering what we would all have to pack, I think I have enough for everyone for at least two weeks. I know that's
nowhere near what we need but I'm adding a little bit here and there.
I have all of our camping gear stacked in a corner of my kitchen in boxes for easy access. Everything else we would need is in a tote.
I pray that we'll never have a need for any of it but if we do, it's there.
Thanks again for the tip about copying documents. I'll give you a star just for that.
