    I'm not much of a survivalist, but my husband and I have recently taken an interest in camping. I thought it would probably be a good idea to join somewhere we can ask questions, so we can leave prepared.

    It's been quite a while since I was in the scouts, so I'm probably not going to be the greatest at outdoorsy things, but I do know my way around a kitchen.

    I hope you guys will welcome me. :)

    Welcome to the tree, ma'am. Here is the number one rule that comes before all other rules when it comes to camping. DON'T FORGET THE MARSHMALLOWS!

    Why marshmallows? Because it's important to have fun when camping, just as it is important to keep moral up when the world as we know it seems to end...so you gotta have something to lift your spirits at the end of a day that didn't go quite as planned. Marshmallows are just one option. Some choose a nice cup of coffee or tea, some choose a nice cup of spiked tea, some choose straight booze...;)

    chimo...[ know we must make allowanase for a jarhead but...............MARSHMALLOWS!???????

    Sarah, pay no attention to the jarhead, he has been out in the sun too long..

    the most important prep in camping is chocolate

    First of all, a hearty welcome to you.

    This site is a treasure trove of information, with members knowledgeable in many fields.

    Come on in, relax, and perhaps most importantly, interact. Ask questions as you see fit, offer guidance to those seeking answers in areas you are familiar with.

    ETA: Not all jarheads take marshmallows camping. I prefer Reeses Pieces ;)

    Welcome aboard, Sarah. Just remember to leave Falcon 15's bananas alone. He's pretty possessive about 'em.
