Or the low tech version: 4 rocks.

I just asked my wife what are some "must haves" for camping. She immediately said "coffee." She's funny like that. My first thoughts were duct tape, spray lube, tool kit, band aides, latex gloves, fire starters, flash lights, elec heater, broom, and wife just added electric skillet to her list. Good luck, and don't be afraid to ask old geezers in the camp grounds for advice. You don't have to take it. Welcome.

Hey, I'm an old geezer, I resemble that remark!

I'm with your wife on the coffee. I have 20 pounds of beans in the basement storage. I get it shipped from a small roaster where I used to live.

Same here. Duct tape and baling wire are both in my trailer. My Dad used to say, if you can't fix it with baling wire, it can't be fixed.

We are planning our first weekend trip to Camp Whitewater at White Lake, NC.

Thanks and we look forward to your responses!

Crock pot, electric space heater for the cooler nights. We only run it when we are awake!
