I posted logistics in another posting, but this is the run-down of our favorite camping supplies. For those of you who requested the post, let me know if I've missed anything of interest.
Cots: Go-kots. They have children and adult sizes. We have the adult-sized with the therm-a-rest pads; they children have the kiddie version. They fold up about the size of a long Sunday newspaper, and are quick to assemble. I'm a huge fan of this product, and the company. Steel frames have a lifetime guarantee.
Sleeping bags: All 5 of us have the LL Bean, flannel-lined. I like the variety of colors - so they're easily distinguishable, and the kids can have their favorite color. :)
Pillows: I love our pillows. They're the flannel camping pillow from LL Bean, and they stuff tightly into a little sack. They're surprisingly adequate for a comfortable night's sleep, for how small they stuff.
Fly Trap: Yes, it doesn't quite rank up there with the tent and sleeping bags, but this thing is so amazing that it bears mentioning. It really works!
If you have something else you'd like mentioned, let me know!
