So, I'm going camping...for the first time in my adult life...eeek! Thankfully with my boyfriend, who is the more camp-y-outdoor-sy one. We're going to a campsite on Mt.Rainier (WA), and will be staying in a tent.
So far, all my list includes is:
-cast iron pans (we both collect them)
and even more so, what do I wear!? I'm the sort of gal that if you saw me on the street and I said I was going camping, ya'll would LOL. I'm actually not opposed to it, just haven't been/never had the time or people who wanted to go. I'm OK with not having a shower, and with getting all up in the woods but have no idea of the type of clothing one wears (I live my life nice tops & heels...which I most def. will NOT bring)
thanks much :)
Update- Thank you so much guys!!!
I'm borrowing the following from my folks:
-sleeping pads (inflatable)
-axe (for breaking down wood)
-hammer (for putting the steaks in the ground for the tent)
I bought a jacket (waterproof, fleece lined), shorts (knee length, so the booty isn't hanging out when I'm hiking around), and tennies (couldn't find mine, but I bought used ones) and a few tees
Planning on getting water and food fixings the day before. Any tips as to storing meat in a cooler? Or is it just a bad idea? We're planning on turkey dogs (wrapped in bacon, with a jalapeno slice) - both of which I think will be ok if we cook on the first night. But what about the next two nights? We're also OK with going veg, but I just wonder
thank you again- so so helpful :)
