Hello peskin and thanks for not taking my reply the wrong way. Like the subsequent responses, I also agree on preparation being a key to happy camping, and there are a couple of areas (primarily things that would make the DW unhappy!) that I try to cover: those are electricity and water. We usually tend to start our camping trips late afternoons so camp setup is often done after hours, so being sure that I'm ready to handle whatever the campground throws at me is REALLY important. Most other issues can wait until the morning. AND when it comes to electricity NO shortcuts are allowed (you know what I mean).
Happy camping! Oh, one more thing, where do you keep the Scotch?
