Who would have thought that I would ever get excited about camping gear! As I said in a previous post, I don’t really do camping and you wouldn’t ever see me in an Outdoor Sports/Camping shop (unless dragged in by my long suffering husband). However, today was different – I went and bought my last bits and pieces for my trip. Most of the stuff I am taking we already own, but there were a few things I needed to buy. The shopping list consisted of the following items: Bear spray, mosquito net, small foldable table, camp mirror and most exciting of all the stackable cocking set!
So, let’s talk bear spray. For those of you who do not live in a country that has wild bears, this is essential to travelling in bear country. Now, I have no plans to get up close and personal with a bear, but you just never know and if this helps to keep them off me long enough for me to make a mad dash to my car, then I’ll be thankful I bought it.
Below are a couple of photos of the newly acquired cooking set that I am so excited about. As you can see, it has two pots, a frying pan, two lids with built in strainers, 4 plates and 4 cups. The bag doubles up as a washing up bowl; and all this fits neatly into the big pot and then into the bag. That’s what I call space saving.
The foldable table I was after just didn’t turn out to be what I was looking for at that particular shop. As it happens, I found one in Walmart of all places (you can just see the top of it in the photos).
And here is something my lovely husband bought for me the other week. My very own Snap On tools set! I must say, I am rather taken with this too, so nice and new and shiny! I know that this will come in really handy.
Only 19 days until I leave and still some research to be done, but I am really enjoying getting ready for this trip of a lifetime.
