 Bear spray???  Where you going camping? I don't camp where you see bears on a regular basis and I don't think I've ever heard of a spray that's gona keep them away!  We have a pop-up camper and keep a lot of stuff already in it, and other stuff packed in containers ready to just load in the camper when we are ready to go camping.  I don't do tent camping!

LOL it's not my list - I just took it off the webstie (source). 

However, we do have bears where I go camping. I've never seen one up close but I've heard stories of those that have.

I've never seen bear spray.. The last time I went camping in NH they told everyone to keep food in their cars and the people across from us didn't listen.. Sadly they had NO breakfast the next morning.. I felt bad but that's what happens when you don't listen to what they told you to do at check in..

lol I think I'm going to use this and make little cards to put on my totes to stock up my camping supplies that way I can grab and go when we go camping. It's been forever since we've gone - I think DS was 1 :-/ lol He's going on 7 now. This summer though we plan on going atleast 4 times.

That's way too much stuff to pack. A hotel is way less hassle. :)
