Eggs can keep for months if properly stored.

I didn't see any firearms on the list but I'm sure they were there.

LOL Donna there is a difference between Camping and Roughing It. Personally I prefer Camping.

But this is a Family Friendly Forum....

I wonder how long those eggs lasted in a covered wagon?
The beer would have to be hauled in a "tanker." It was a long trip.

A wool blanket, a picnic table and I'm all set for the night.
I can go a week without eating. But, I don't.
Well the eggs will last a long time maybe for years. You don't bring eggs...You bring live chickens. As for the milk, you figure that out....moo. and for the campfire use the cow pies

That's what I was thinking to bring laying hens
if they didn't quit laying from stress.

I was actually trying to visualize how they would
keep the eggs from being broken on the rough trails.

Just one of the valleys in CA, west of Emigrant Gap that had to be traversed.

I have always thought there is a little bit of pioneer spirit in all of us who love to camp, be in the woods, and explore. When I hike to a mountain top and look out, I like to imagine the land as it must have looked to them or the Indians. Raw, wild beautiful.
Thanks for the choice pictures Lora, they are wonderful!

Thank you. These were taken during our trip out west and back this summer. We grew up visiting lots of great sites like these and I have a lot of fun sharing them with my DH.

I pack too much stuff.
Hubby says put camping stuff in the truck then---go take half of it back to the house.
We do need to pack light -small camper -not much space.
Going to try to camp while the grandkids are on spring break (I am the
daycare).
Hope weather is better.
Sorting camp stuff-so ready.
The Mrs.
