    Ha, this ones easy. Camping is our thing and my wife and I have a system for all the different types of camping we do throughout the year and are usually very organized and streamlined but......... when we go with a group, or the kids (who by the way are all grown with their own families) my wife/nana feels it is our obligation to take quadruples of everything possible incase somebody needs or forgets something. I remember one trip last year where I counted a dozen camp chairs! Oh and radios, and DVD players in case the grandkids get bored (pfft-give me a break!), and "Floaties" and extra sleeping bags, and pilllows, and blankets, and thingamajig camp decorations, and games, and extra fishing poles and our water "cuz it tastes better", and............well you get the idea! LOL
    Folks may not remember the words of what you said but they dang sure will remember how you made them feel!

    I always pack the the absolute minimum. Being ex-infantry I know it's important to keep it light as possible.
    EXACTLY! Same thing, but mine added (I kid you not!) a whole drawers worth of makeup!?!? Enough to cover everyone at a miss America pageant. Told her every bug in 50 miles will come to her perfume & the kicker! Told her skunks will sneak up in the night to lick off makeup. The look on her face was worth millions!!!!

    It always seems like I am preparing for wilderness survival the way I fill a backpack. My first choice was always a good pocket knife as that will provide all else for survival. The worst item? Chocolate. (Trail mix with M&Ms or anything with chocolate as an ingredient since it almost always MELTS... even in the ziploc bag.)

    Ozymandias
    Percy Bysshe Shelley, 1792 - 1822

    I met a traveller from an antique land
    Who said: “Two vast and trunkless legs of stone
    Stand in the desert . . . Near them, on the sand,
    Half sunk, a shattered visage lies, whose frown,
    And wrinkled lip, and sneer of cold command,
    Tell that its sculptor well those passions read
    Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things,
    The hand that mocked them, and the heart that fed:
    And on the pedestal these words appear:
    ‘My name is Ozymandias, king of kings:
    Look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair!'
    Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
    Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare
    The lone and level sands stretch far away.”

    I like a little workout when I camp, but next time I will leave the 50 pound dumbells at home!

    The worst thing to bring camping is the device that I despise more than anything on this earth...a cell phone.

    You are supposed to eat all of that as you drive to the trail head. At least that's what I do!

    When I go backpacking with friends I always bring safety equipment which I have never used thankfully! A friend on his first trip brought a 3 man tent, his shoulder strap broke half way on a 25 mile hike so we all ended up carrying his stuff since our shoelace fix wouldn't hold 80 pounds...

    Sailor's repair kit! Heavy-duty waxed thread, curved needle, thimble. Saved my a** on more than one hike when something broke, whether a pack strap, bootlace, or tent seam.

    I'm forever bringing more maps than I need. We've got our kit pretty compact at this point, though.

    The map is not the territory.
    If we do not act, we are acted upon.

    that one always works.

    I have friends who very often go hiking. They really laughed at me when I took the tablet with me on a camping trip. In the campaign, we don't use phones, we keep in touch by walkie-talkies. Basically, I take with me warm clothes, a pair of T-shirts, a sleeping bag, and we have a tent for 4. It's very important to choose good shoes. After my first hike, I realized that all the gadgets are practically useless in the forest. We are already beginning to prepare for the spring camping, I want to buy a walkie-talkie and a camping kitchen. I found an interesting article here. Now I think how necessary is the camping kitchen. I know that hiking isn't worth taking a lot of things. I wonder how comfortable it's to carry a camp kitchen and how often do you use it?
