My husband would just fall over if I started to bring things for the OUTside!

I'm not even sure I'd want to bring much, since I'm quite lazy and I like to travel very light just cause it's easier!

If we were ever to go somewhere for extended periods of time instead of just fast weekend jaunts, You bet I'd start making even the campsite look more personalized, however!


I LOVE all the kitcshy ways everyone does things! It really makes you smile, and that is one thing we can use a lot more of in this ole world.

We take a string of colored lanterns that hang from the awning. We only hang them when we're staying somewhere for more than two nights.

That's my thought too. I just added some vinyl stick-on letters to a plastic container:

I mounted a towel bar on the inside of my entrance door. When I latch it open it creates an outdoor place to display this dish towel I found on a trip to Bisbee, AZ:

Thanks, Deb! We like to travel pretty light, too.
Pssst...so if you WERE going to bring something for the outside...what would you like to bring?


I was wondering if anyone had used some of those new plastic-weave floor mats and what they thought of them. Right now we bring an outdoor rug (kind of like rat fur) that we bought for that purpose (Totem was selling them for $20 a couple of years ago). It's great for smoothing out the lumps, hiding the gopher holes, and keeping the dust and dirt outside. Only problem is when it rains and I have to pack up. It can get pretty heavy with water and has to be stored outside in the box of the truck.

I'm still looking for the perfect picnic table cloth - flannel backed, not tacky-looking, and that covers the WHOLE table.

I'd also like to know how some people hook up their outdoor minilights.

Any thoughts, anyone?

Where do you plug them in? And how do you attach them?

Charlynn,

I can hardly wait for the photos!

hmmmm...got me thinking. I usually bring wood from home (lots of construction in my city - I go dumpster diving and usually pick up some nice, square, easy-to-stack, long-burning pieces of pine (no treated stuff). No problem taking that from place to place in Canada, but will I be able to take it into the States? (I hate paying for campground wood if I can 'recycle" stuff that would go into the garbage anyway.

There's a receptacle on the awning side of the Casita. We plug it in there. It just clips onto the awning by a series of plastic clothespins.
