The BEST one camping item? Someplace to sleep! Tent, trailer, what have you?
No fair now. Kevin said "under $10.00" if you've found a trailer OR a tent for under $10 I want to shop with you!

Gotta agree with others on the 6 pack of cool beer.

But then, I guess that is 'Under $10' over and over again, so maybe should not count.

Hmmm, that's a toss-up between the small non-stick frypan and the tea kettle, for the reasons given above. Y'see we're waaaaay too young for beverages needing a bottle opener Happy camping to all, L 'n D

One of my favorite items to take camping that cost under $10 is the cooking basket, the kind that flips open and you put over the fire to cook with. We have made so many good meals using just the basket.

Also if you have a lighter, you can open a beer.Pop the top with the end of the lighter...

Your choice of bottle openers is way more complex than west coast or east coast!

Here's a good-old-boy bottle opener. It's simple, unpretentious, and gets the job done.

And last, though not least, the bottle opener for people who meet someone interesting on St. Patrick's Day in a Las Vegas supermarket, drink a case . . . or two . . . or three . . . in the parking lot, and wake up the next morning with a hangover and a wedding ring to commemorate their happy day.

And, yes, most of these are $10 and under.

A lighter for the obvious, but also works as a bottle opener for Donna's benefit.

Peter - What Ian said!

My favorite item for $10 or less? A GOOD, sharp knife. Oh, wait...do they MAKE those for under 10 bucks? Ok...no.

How about...garage sale dutch oven. Yep - I can cook anything in a dutch oven. (If it's dessert!)

This one's not for everyone but it works for us.

A large meaty marrow bone to keep our food-hound occupied while we enjoy the company at FG gathering pot lucks.

Just ask anyone who's sat near us at one of these events.

I have to agree with Christy, Toilet Paper! Why????
I remember my cousin wiped his butt with a poison ivy leaf.
Not a good idea!

I found a large coffee can the size of a TP roll and carry it to the toilet area in case the TP there has run out -- The can with plastic lid keeps the TP dry if it is raining a little (If it's raining a lot, and chilly, then I use the portly-potty, but I avoid that whenever possible as I am lazy and wish to avoid emptying it!).

BTW, if you have a bathroom and TP on a roll, squeeze the TP before putting it on the roller gizmo -- It is less likely to unroll on the road if it isn't round.
