In January and February I always start to really miss summer. It seems like the excitement for winter is starting to fade away and I am in serious lack of sunshine. Every summer we take a big team camping trip, and we meet up the night before at the store (http://shop.shredzshop.com) to pack the vehicles. When we left on our camping trip last summer, it was really interesting to see what everyone packed.
We ended up heading to Kelowna, Peachland and Pentiction this summer and had a great time. You can really get to know someone by seeing what they pack as essentials for camping. Some people came with nothing but a blanket and their wallet, to other people bringing a family sized suitcases and bags of extra supplies. People brought everything from hair spray to hunting knifes. I always pack pretty minimally apart from a weakness for brining technology to check my email daily. Here is a pick of my camping essentials (with some extra clothes thrown in the backpack).
