Not a Happy Camper

ToT-Button

The topic for this week's Ten on Tuesday. . . Ten Things to Bring on a Camping Trip.  Uh-oh.  I don't DO camping.  The last time I "camped" was in 1983.  Too much work.  Too much hassle.

But.  I do have a cottage "up north."  It's like camping.  Only civilized.  At my cottage, I have electricity, plumbing, beds with sheets, a real oven, a refrigerator, a shower, TV with DVD (but no cable and no internet), and a washer and dryer.  It's not "roughing it."  Shoot, I have crystal wine glasses in my cabinets and Mr. Rick's cousin (The Storm Trooper) in the closet under the stairs.  So, no roughing it.  Not even close.  But it's as close to camping as I'll ever get!

So . . . what do I make sure to have on hand. . . up at my cottage?

  1. Knitting -- and plenty of it!
  2. Books and magazines
  3. My iPod
  4. Wine
  5. A comfy sweatshirt
  6. Movies
  7. Games
  8. Brownies (it's a family cottage tradition!)
  9. Beach towels
  10. Cozy afghans for long naps
And THAT kind of camping. . . I can deal with!

I'm with you! But, sadly I have no cottage. At least you can charge your iPod!!

Nancy

Me, neither! It's my cottage, a hotel, motel or nothing.

Back in my hey dey, I went camping with a pocket knife and a plastic tarp (yep, i was into wilderness survival)
I LOVE that last photo!

Cookie

That sounds so much better than camping.

Diane

Yes! Yes! YES! Camping sounds like so much fun. Until you actually do it.

Carol

It's funny to see so many of us outed as non-campers! Love your list. I think our ski house fits the same qualities as your cottage, complete with brownies!

Sue

I am so with you. Electricity and running water with a toilet you can get to without going outside are my absolute minimum requirements.

Stephieknits

That is my idea of camping! We do Condo/hotels which is also nice
