1.Fire is a must

2. swag yes must sleep well

3. chainsaw saves cutting wood by hand

4.good food consists of manly meat, eggs, bacon (also meat but better ) onion, shrooms mixed with beer and gravy    NO SALAD. you dont make friends with salad

5.BBQ or hotplate need something to cook all that meaty goodness 
after that much protein you wont need a toilet for a few days

5 1/2.  good company no-one wants to go camping with a pain in the ass

Hi All
A good fridge or 2, good shelter from wind sun & rain, fresh water, spares for breakdowns of any description & the skills to fix any problems.
Keep your camp clean!!!

Long term camping in a remote area.
Collecting rain water from the tent or annex or from some other method.

Use a portable shower unit that plugs into the cigarette lighter, for those that haven't use them stand in a plastic container with hot water and place the small pump in the container, the water is recirculated.
Heating the water can be from various means but for showering I use a heat exchange unit that is fitted under the bonnet, takes about 10 minutes with the engine running to heat enough water to have a good shower.

I have puddings everyday, the amount of stuff in the supermarkets today in small packets, UHT milk, cream, custard, rice, yogurt and fruits and a heap of other stuff that doesn't need to be in the fridge.
You can even get freeze dried steak and meals from good camping shops.

We must go to different fields there XIV. I quite enjoy a bunny or 2, but I very rarely ever see any, so I never bother taking the old rifle with me.

If intending to sleep in the back of the wagon, don't be lazy, clean the back out, and stop tryen to sleep in the passenger front seat No Q05  not!

Even worse when you try sleeping on the drivers side and realise your feet have been on the brake pedal all night flattening your battery. Rolling Eyes 

Remember when sleeping in the back of your wagon to check for spiders after carting wood. affraid 

Always remember to keep a window down a little when sleeping in a vehicle as the build up of Benzene from plastics will kill you. study

  1. To eat well
  2. To sleep comfortable and warm
  3. To have a hot shower
  4. To have a reasonable toilet setup.
  5. To stay dry
