Most unusual thing I take camping

Ok, ok, aside from a unique spouse or pet, what is the most unusual thing which always accompanies you on a camping trip.

You know, the one-of-a-kind thing that you don't think anybody in their right mind (except you) would take camping?

It could be a tool. It could be an unusual food. It could be, well, whatever you think you take along that no one else takes.

Aside from some unmentionable things (and I'll leave this up to your imagination), the most unusual thing Pam and I take is a small, three foot long, garden rake.

I believe the proper name is "bush" rake. The small, not wider than an out-stretched hand, rake comes in handy for quickly sprucing up our campsite.

I started carrying a rake years ago, when I watch the National Forest campground host rake down the campsite next to me. Not only did he pick up a lot of junk ... the recently raked campsite really looked spiffy.

So, from that day forward, we started carrying our own rake ... and will often rake down the campsite, particularly if it's littered with twisty bits of plastic, cigarette butts and old bottle caps.

Another usual thing we carry is a full-sized hand-saw ... why? Well, you just never know when something's gonna need sawing.

So how about you? What do you carry that you think most folks don't?

What For

I carry a 6 foot black hose made for an automatic clothes washer. I'm sure you know what I use it for and it's not for the washing machine(Bernice).

I'm intrigued too!

So what is it used for?
If it's something really kinky you don't have to answer.

Black Washer Hose

I carry one also, but it's only about 3'. Mine is used to connect the gray water outlet spout to the blue tote tank. No adapter needed.

a 6' hose ? ? I have no idea, but I could make up some uses. :lol
I carry a rake and a broom. for clean up where I put the tent and to sweep it out, but I won't need the tent. but I might need a rake and a broom. :yep use to carry a vacuum. I never used it, but it got borrowed once to clean an AC.
I have a porch. because everytime I camp it rains, and I ALWAYS park where the door opens over the only puddle. so Tom and I made a porch. about 2' deep and 3' wide and 4 inches tall. I fall off steps. :wak. too small for me to stand on and open doors.

OK

The black hose goes through the bath window to connect to the stick to clean the black holding tank. It is easy to put into a plastic grocery bag until it's needed next time. That way I don't have to use my fresh water hose inside the bathroom. I was sure you guys would know that.

Well, If I actually had a bathroom I might have known that.

Someday when my Burro grows up into a 16 foot Casita then it will have a bathroom. Hopefully I will remember that tip......

[/quote If I had a bath window and a black holding tank in my 13 ft Boler I would have known that too but since I have neither and now know what the black laundry hose is for, I`ll be able to sleep contentedly tonight.......Thanks and good night.....Benny
