We haven't forgotten the coffee but on our last trip I started to make the coffee and the maker didn't work. Needless to say, a trip to Walmart was made.

We don't forget the beverages we just forget to bring enough.

A camping trip is not complete without a trip to Walmart. LOL.

DH has forgotten clean boxers. I frequently forget something food related. The worst was when I planned hot dogs and beans for dinner. I forgot ketchup, beans and buns but I remembered the hot dogs and we had chips. we forgot dd Halloween costume last year when the campground was having trick or treating. Dd was about 4 at the time. We offered for her to go without costume, no go. Nothing within a alf hour radius of campground so DH drove a 3 hr round trip to get it and got back just in time for trick or treating to start. My cell phone and I was miserable because god forbid I go 2 days without it attached to my hip.

The first few trips of the season are especially challenging when it comes to forgetting items. Canned foods, pots, pans and especially the appropriate clothes.

if you keep the trailer stocked like a mini kitchen with its own dishes and pots/pans they become difficult to forget. We keep designated toiletries, first aid stuff etc in the trailer so the only things that go back/forth for a trip are clothes, food and meds.

X2. I keep as much as possible, including linens, in there so there isn't so much to carry out.

I have forgotten the memory card for the camera, mustard/ketchup for hot dogs and, probably the worst...my hair dryer once. Us ladies have our priorities, you know.

I always make a list now. I have an Android phone and downloaded an app called Out of Milk. It has a shopping list, a pantry list and a to do list. I use the pantry list for things I already have at home I need to take. I use the shopping list for things I need from the supermarket and the to do list for the obvious. Once they're done I simply delete them from my list. It's been a lifesaver.

Forgot the remotes for the TV and ZX700 last year when we went to the FR Rally in Goshen. ANd speaking of forgot, did the ultimate forgot the last night at the rally and forgot my keys in the truck and locked it, of course that is after DW had put her purse with the spare set in it in the truck.

This is exactly why I carry my old fashioned percolator pot just in case.

Went on a group campout a couple of years ago, the guy who brought coffee didn't realize he had whole bean instead of ground. No one had a grinder, so we improvised a mortar & pestle with a dutch oven and a couple of empty beer bottles so us caffeine hounds could get our fix.
