After three successful camping trips in the last year, here are a few tips from the Schwartz book on camping:
1. Camp with another family more experienced than you and with more stuff. That way when you forget pillows and matches, they can help you out. It helps if said family is fun to spend time with and game for pretty much anything.

2. Staying at a campsite with showers? Plan to shower immediately after the daily cleaning. Otherwise on busy weekends, showers and bathrooms get pretty muddy and disgusting.
3. Chocolate Digestive cookies are the new graham wafer. If you are lazy like me, you are always looking for ways to simplify. To make S'mores, simply use chocolate covered Digestive cookies and your roasted marshmallow for pure gooey, deliciousness.

5. Don't buy the small bundle of wood for $6.00. Go for the whole wheelbarrow of wood for $10.00. When making a fire there is nothing wrong with a little lighter fluid to help things along.
|The best part about buying the wood, was the ride to return the wheelbarrow.|
