With the Labor Day holiday nearing, I thought that I would share my very thorough camping list with everyone.  Growing up on the east coast, my family never camped.  It wasn’t until I was married and had kids here in California, that I went camping for the first time.  Having never done it before, I wasn’t really eager to go.  I actually had a lot of anxiety about it, but I persevered and made it through.  Many years later, I am now very dialed in so I hope that this list can help many.
