The GINerator

And a Turbo Toilet. It's sturdy and fits perfectly in the walk through. Collapses thin and fits above the head banger. No getting up in the middle of the night opening doors and waking everyone up.

I guess I'm just different than other people. (Really?) I have a competition with myself to discover what NOT to take. On every trip I try to eliminate one more thing from my gear kit. The less I bring, the less I have to keep track of. I do, however, bring my electronic fartcloud generator for the jackass with the generator, or the shitbrain with the Times Square light array, or the Bozo with the headbanger sound system. If you need all that crap you might as well stay home. In my view camping is to get AWAY from all that.

Stainless steel french press coffeemaker is #1, followed by a cast iron frying pan for bacon.

Camping *supplies* .. bacon, beer and coffee.

Lil'Lulu, if I'm going on a week long road trip bouncing from place to place I travel light. Less crap in the way. If I'm camping in one spot for awhile I load up stuff.

I bought a Yeti cooler with all the gift cards I've received over the years. I wouldn't of spent that kind of money normally. But since it didn't cost me anything I went for it. Haven't had a raccoon break in yet and it keeps things cold all week.

Sorry to step on all the old guys' grass. Let me repeat myself - there is camping, and there is music festivals where I live in the bus for a week.

If you think I'm gonna lug a generator/lights/stereo out into the woods, well, I might as well stay home lol. Read the thread please

Fine, here's a happy medium. I'll lug the 85lb radio, we can all listen to Journey or Boston's "greatest hits" album for the 200th time, and I'll bring everyone a beer.

All is well again Wink Laughing

Don't be bashing on "THE VOICE", Mr. Steve Perry. As far as Boston, please bash away.. Laughing

Funny how so many of this young generation wish the current music of today was half as good as the 80's. Wink

Well, you do have Justin Bieber.... LMAO!

I wish "popular music" today was anything other than what it is. And when I say music, I use the term loosely Crying or Very sad
