My oldest son and his girlfiend are going for a four day camping trip with some of her friends.  One of her guy friends (she's a tom boy), was killed and his parents had him cremated and they're going to go spread his ashes in some meaningful place.  However, they have not planned all that well and ended up shopping at the mom and pop store, they took our papertowels, DH made sure they took TP, andcour cooler, bread, bologna, condiments, hmmm.  LOL  I'll enjoy hearing about their little adventure when they return home.  Thank goodness it's summer.

 I'm sorry about the boy that died :(  I hope they have a very meaningful weekend.

 Our dd is camping this weekend too with a group of kids from a college age christian youth group.  She hates camping, bugs etc.  Should be interesting, lol.

the first time camping when you don't camp is tough...they will learn real fast what they were missing.  I remember our first time.  We didn't even have towels for anything...lol..camping is sooo much work..but I sure love being in secluded places.  they will have a blast no doubt.

It will be a learning experience. We took the kids camping at different state parks every year when they were growing up. We had a list of all the necessities and still always ended up forgetting something. These are the things that great memories are made of.

It's sad about the boy dying but I think it will be a meaningful trip for them.  As for the camping part....they will decide this weekend if they like it or don't.  lol  Could be some funny stories!

They really didn't plan well did they? You'll have to share the story when they get back :)

I'm wondering, did anyone take along bug repelant or sunscreen?
