Car camping comforts
Joyce Park stashed this in Camping and hiking
Actually, this is a great idea.
I should mention some things I do NOT carry while car camping, just so you know there are some.
* Battery lanterns
* Chairs with cup holders
* Two-burner stoves
* Portable showers
Why no portable shower?
For me, a lot of the POINT of camping is not having to take a shower. Plus a portable shower works well for one or two people, but it's REALLY AWKWARD for more than that. Plus you need to hang up the shower for between 3 - 5 hours every day... Less and it won't be hot, more and it's TOO hot. I don't think I have that kind of time management when I'm camping. Oh and car camping sites are quite close to each other... do you want to be naked in front of your camping neighbors while showering?
Camping is more about going with the flow than rigidly scheduling your time.
How can you be American and be down on cup holders? It's the American way. Every house should have 1.5 bathrooms per bedroom, and every car should have 1.5 cupholders per seat.Cupholders in bathrooms are optional, but the decade is still young so feel free to get ahead of the trend.
