We will be leaving for Fish Lake, which is here in Utah early in the morning. It's about a 4 hour drive from where we live.I am checking things off my list as I put them in the trailer. ...and when I say "I" ....I really mean my kids!I put everything on my kitchen table as remembered to load and they are my carriers!I thought I would show you a few things I am taking.
These are books that I just picked up at the local Barnes & Noble to take.As they are both about trailers and camping I thought they were the perfect choice. It's killing me to wait until I get there to peruse them...but I did open "My Cool Caravan" long enough for a little sneak peek...and to snap the above pictures.
I will be taking this large vintage tablecloth....isn't it sweet? Does anyone remember these?It's made from terry cloth and I don't think it's ever been used. I found it last week when I found my egg holder while thrifting.
We take these vintage tins every year....loaded with crayons.
I started this tradition several years back....this is what I do.....
I keep a big selection of coloring books in the trailer....and as I have told you before, we go with the same friends (several families) every year....and everyone of all ages colors at least one coloring book page while we are there.
I make sure they sign their page along with the year and I keep them in my trailer.
It's fun for all of us to look back on the pages every year!
My little vintage match holder goes out there.....looks like it needs a fill up! I found these little cuties last month during another treasure hunt. $1.99 a pair at the thrift store...love it! I knew they would go perfectly out there in the trailer. This is a set I usually take. It's not vintage but I still love it! Quirky little S&P shakers are fun to put on the table during our potluck dutch-oven dinners. I always take my cute little vintage fan along....sometimes it's needed for a bit in the hot afternoon if there is no breeze.
Hey girls...I said I was going camping...I didn't say I was roughing it! (my trailer does have a bathroom, shower, fridge and a cute little double sink!)
I just plug the fan in when we are going somewhere with electrical hook-ups..... but when we aren't....Mr. Honey turns on the generator for me.
Yes....Mr. Honey is a good man to have around...especially when camping.
At night when it gets cold...(as it always does in the mountains)...we have a heater and plenty of quilts to make our bed comfy cozy warm. Mr. Honey and I have spent lots of enjoyable hours fixing up our trailer. I love it! It's just like playing house! We keep lots of games in our trailer and play them often...Racko, UNO and Phase 10 are a few favorites. I found another set of Old Phase 10 cards at the same thrift shop last week for 50 cents....not a card missing and even still had the instructions. But our very favorite card game to play is Hand & Foot. You just need 6 decks of cards to play it....(and some good snacks)! This year Mr. Honey and I are heading up a tournament (double elimination) for all those 18 and up. I'll tell you how it went when I get back....we are a pretty competitive bunch! Even though I love all things vintage....I also love new technology!
As a family....we always listen to books on CD on the drive there and back.
This trip we will be listening to these 3. I've heard fabulous things about this series.
Of course....I also have my kindle to take. I have downloaded a few new books for my own reading time....if I get any!...if I do, I'm prepared. I also made 4 batches of these...."Hello Dolly's" to take.
I made these the first trip we went on and everyone there insists that I keep up that tradition too!
My sisters and I would make these alot while we were still at home and they are still one of my favorites to take camping!
I took pictures when I made them and when I get back I will share the recipe and a tutorial with you....
