The One Thing You Won't Camp Without

So, other than the standard fare (food, lawn chairs, bug spray, maps/GPS, flashlights, etc), what is the one thing that wouldn't seem obvious to us newbies that you absolutley MUST have with you when you leave for a trip?

Mike

One thing we would not go with out is our propane BBQ grill. Here in AZ there are a lot of times with the drought that a charcoal or wood grill are not allowed and the propane is the only way to cook outside.

Board Games! The best way to sit at the picnic table and enjoy being out side. Scrabble for pre-happy hour , Yahtzee for when happy hour starts. Next thing you know it's time to get a fire going and start cooking dinner. Camping is tough, but some one has to do it!

Get yourself a good battery charger and a small air compressor. You may never have to use it, but if you do, its a life saver.
Depending on your setup, maybe a small honda generator like a 2000 or so. Tools ,must have tools.
