Things you should NOT take on a camping trip.

Has this survey been done? I'm sitting in Lake D'abonne state park this memorial weekend and DW is telling me a list of things we should have brought. I asked, "did you bring anything you shouldn't have?". Blank stare for a few seconds, then we began to name things we should never bring.
I'll start with this one. Feel free to add to the list.

Mother in law.

(That didn't go over well with DW.)

DH said Fathers In Law (BOTH of ours)!

Dear Lord I'd rather burn this puppy DOWN first! They're as different as high noon and midnight, and each one is as insanity inducing as the other one.

Another item to never bring;

Little Blue Pills

(and when I read this to DH he said "who needs those?"


Third item, if you have young kids:

NEVER bring their drum set!

We made that mistake with my mom. She got pancake batter all over the tt. I mean ceilings, walls, floor, carpet, sofa and dinette. she didn't know to vent the shake and pour pancake mix so she just kept shaking it until it exploded. DH banned her from coming ever again.

1. Relatives/Friends who are clumsy or tend to break things.
To make a 'Hyper Lite' trailer, nothing is industrial strength.
2. Anyone who doesn't want to go camping.
3. Dogs who suffer separation anxiety; yap, yap, yap, yap...

Why do so many folks use letters instead of words? I finally have figured out DW=wife ... apparently. Feel like I'm back in the Army, initials for everything.

There is a list somewhere on the forum DW Dear Wife, D can be the other too DH Dear Husband, DS Dear Son etc. TV can be confusing as it can be what you watch or tow vehicle.

Sometimes wish left the phones & or computer home they seem to follow us sometimes.

Somethings we bring we are glad that we do not have to use....... First aid kit etc.

That's a great one KDHfan. Won't bring laptop along camping but will only bring tablet (therefore no access to work - too tempting otherwise)
