a fan, no matter the temp. I sleep with a fan and it drown out noises. I must have my fan (good thing I have a rechargeable one)

Well, I came across a must have for my dog, a pop up crate made life so much easier. I did not have to worry if the this crate would puncture the tent or how to pack the metal crate, which was a bit of a pain. I also found really cool solar clamp lights for an umbrella, that I clamped onto my tent and they worked awesome.

Camp chair. It makes hanging out by the campfire much more relaxing. I never go camping without my chair. Plus it has a drink holder!

Default Things I can't live without

Definitely need sunscreen, as hubby has vitiligo and needs the protection. Bug spray, especially this summer. Music, a fan or two for the tent, and I won't go anywhere without at least one LED flashlight. They are so handy! I carry one in my purse and one in my car at all times!

this list is nuts, you dont need over half that stuff, this list is fine if you can drive to your site, but if you have to pack your way in more than half that list has to go. I belive the topic was must haves, i dont know if they mean thing a person must have or if they mean the exta crap everyone wants to bring because they saw it used on tv. I go into the boundrywaters in northern minnesota quite a bit whatever you bring you have to haul it yourself(unless your a chick then i'll give you the light stuff)
