Rule 1 of camping: PRE-MAKE EVERYTHING. It makes enjoying your vacation so much easier when you don't have to fuss with preparation nor cleanup. I mean pre-make everything. Pre-cut your lettuce and tomato for burgers. Pre-package your sliced veggies for dutch oven cheesy veggies.
Pre-wrap your bacon hot dogs.
Premake your fire starters.
Pre-crack your eggs so don't have to worry about soggy cartons or cracked shells.
Freeze your water bottles so you can use them instead of as ice packs. Plus you always have cold water!
Pre-make, wrap and refrigerate your camporitos.
(Large tortillas, hashbrowns, bacon or sausage, cheese and eggs)
All you have to do is warm them up and add salsa!
Do as much as you possibly can before you go!
I'm a girly girl even in the woods. And I'm an over planner. And true to both traits, I've made detailed drafts of my best camping outfits for the weekend. So maybe this step is a bit overdoing it for most people. Certainly not for me. And at least it gives you a glimpse of what my personal camping comfort clothes are.
Leggings, t-shirts, and sweater boots. I mean, it doesn't get more cozy than this.
It is hot during the day, so a hat to keep the sun off my head and a swim suit under my tank makes it easy to strip down to once we walk to the lake.
It gets cold in the mountains the second the sun goes down. Be prepared. Bring a vest and a couple long sleeve shirts for staying warm when you're hanging out around the fire.
Thi is kind of redundant, but Colorado weather is bipolar. No joke. Be prepared and don't be afraid to layer.
I'm not even kidding. This is exactly what I'm packing:
Anyway, (I've done my Pinterest duty for the month) wish us luck this weekend and I'll let you know next week how it went! Have a good weekend everyone!
