What I find essential is my coffee press and good coffee. Nothing, I mean Nothing happens until I have my coffee--even speaking!!! I can heat the water either on the stove inside, or the propane
stove outside, or even the microwave
if in a blind hurry. Once I have a couple cups sitting in my chair outside--life is good and I might be able to speak a few words.
2. We have a teeny mobile bar--those 50s kind in leather--too cool!--and I consider a good drinky at the end of the day pretty essential.
3. Add to that our new tiny port-a-potty that fits under the couch. If you have ever awakened in the night with the ickys, believe me, it is essential!!! We now have a little shower tent that we can erect behind the Scamp
when we have room.
4-5. I agree with the cell for sure, and the repair kit. We have all our essentials like that in a little rollable rubbermaid 3-drawer thingy. We put it behind the trailer and it seems rainproof so far.
6. Also we bring a folding propane
camp stove from our tenting days, also nice collapsible chairs and table.
7. personals like Shower-after-Shower powder, a gallon of water (in case), and a washcloth!
That's it for me. Although we do not full-time and have never camped these days without electricity--I do not leave the driveway without these items above. I do bring along too many clothes and shoes, and I love having our little rug to place on the ground outside our camper just to keep dirt from following us inside--plus it looks cool and matches the Scamp
logo color! When weather is bad, I really enjoy my laptop and the TV and I usually bring my little radio/tape player (I'm a little old school still).
I envy you full timers and might want to try for an extended travel date with my Scamp
, but I don't know if I can leave my pakrat ways that far behind! I know hubby will not pay storage costs for all my 'stuff'. ha!
