This summer's great new camping things

1. Solar outdoor string lights. I usually camp where there is no electricity. The solar lights are awesome for providing just enough light to get around and make the site kinda fun. Best part, the LED don't seem to attract bugs!
2. Super large tarp. For long trips, I got a super large tarp that covers the whole site... 20x30. It really was nice on the long trip when it rained.
3. Wood decking. I got wood decking tiles 2x2 feet. Just six of them. It made a great deck at the door step...and inside the outdoor shower. I got them at a Christmas Tree Shop.
4. Dahon folding bike. I really liked the folding bike....fits in the trailer and makes all the little trips so much faster.
5. Telescoping ladder. It is a real luxury... not used often...but the right tool for the job of putting up the tarp. Best way to get the lines up really high.
6. Large power pack. I got a Wagan power pack... the deluxe model. I was able to recharge it with my solar panel. Was great.
7. Osprey backpack. Love em...got 2 sizes. Got the 35 cu size.

Getting ready for the last camp of the season. Columbus Day in the Catskills. Hope the leaves are at peak. Looking forward to the view from Hunter Mountain!
