I promise to keep this one short.
We went on our first camping trip in many years this weekend! I promised my hubby I would travel light, so he brought out this tiny little “bug out” bag he calls it.
He knows how I like options in outfit choices – it’s a girls prerogative!
I had to follow all of his guidelines though and pack light, remember I am trying to warm him up to my Next Big Thing.
The differences we deem as important became abundantly clear as we readied for this trip.
My hubby is a foodie. I made sure I satisfied a foodie’s dream requirements with my camping menu…
Homemade sliced Ham and Roast Beef with cheddar cheese on French Rolls for lunches.
Egg, Sausage, and Cheddar Cheese Breakfast Burritos.
Spaghetti w/Meat Sauce complete with Toasted Garlic Bread.
Kielbasa Sausage with homemade Mac and Cheese.
Cheesy Potato Fries as a late night snack.
Pumpkin and Spice pancakes with real maple syrup from Canada.
And last but not least…roasted marshmallows with chocolate chip oreo cookies for what I like to call SMOREOS.
While I felt pretty ridiculous with three outfits for three days, I will say we had a fabulous time with our decked out camp, complete with stereo, table, chairs, 5 person (for 2 people) tent, and a boat to get us there. Yes, that’s 2 ice chests.
Who could want for more?
We almost had a Ricky and Lucy Camp Lake Mohave, with the 30 mph winds and an 18 foot boat, but we made it.
The coyotes loved the leftovers, although they had a tummy ache after raiding our trash bags while we slept I’m sure. At least they weren’t bears.
Who needs options when you camp with MacGyver?
I thought I was humoring him, but he was really humoring me.
You got to love him.
Until next time.
