    Let him know you're behind him. I don't know which boot camp he's at, but that's the hardest training any grown man will ever have to go through. The things that are probably best to send include modest pictures of you (everyone will see them), letters that encourage him to do his best, and cute little notes about what's going on in your life. Really let him know that you support him, I can't stress that enough. Always focus on the positive things that are going on in your life, don't give him all the bad news in your life (his stress is much higher). Good luck to you too, having a relationship with someone in the military is extremely difficult, and only a few actually come out together.

    Start with WATER, a shovel, and hatchet . matches as well at Toilet Paper, Damn CAN OPENER. MUSTS

    Now think your way through the day .. begin at waking up and and stepping out of the tent, clean up yourself or change .. toothbrush, cup to hold water ... WATER JUB!! Towel, washclothe....... will you need a chair? Breakfast. Try the COOLER CHEST. Maybe fishing .. you have a pole? Try a licinse to use it .... Now mid morning, what will you be doing? Reading (book) relaxing, how, maybe play a game. Then Lunch.. what will you make? You have plenty of ICE? Then afternoon activities, perhaps going for a walk, or collecting firewood. You have something to haul it in? Maybe more games? Then Dinner .. about this time the bugs come out SPRAY the tent with insect spray, Got that? What will you make? You have a GRILL,charcol, or wood? You have a bucket to wash dishes?

    Go on throught the day ..and write it down, imagine every step including the musturd on your hot dog. The Can opener for your beans ... step by step. I hope this helped. Have Fun!!

    Depends if your going "car camping" (campground or site) or if your going "back country camping" (middle of the woods, no facilties). I do both and you'll need certain things if your doing the second. You can google it and make sure you don't miss anything. But I can tell you one thing...air mattresses get really cold at night, so use a mat, like a thermarest, if the temp will dip at night. Trust me, I learned the hard way...

    If you're referring to Tent Camping, here's a good list:

    If you're talking about RV Camping, then here's a list for that:

    Either way, make sure you print the Printer Friendly Version, so you'll have checkboxes to check off each item, and blank spaces to write in extras you think of. Hope the lists help, and have a great trip! --Johnnie

    I googled a good camping checklist years ago and found this. I have changed it to fit my own needs and those of my family. I don't take everything on this list, but it's a great place to start

    Well a tent and some matches always come in handy. Some luxury items might include a pillow, a sleeping bag, some food, bug spray, and a good (but not necesarily nice) hat. Have fun!

    One of the most important things to take is "TOILET PAPER". You'll be sorry if you forget that.
