Things you always have when camping

I always have a shovel, an Axe, at least 10 gals of water, and a first aid kit when camping.

The axe and shovel go on the roof rack (fourtreks mount) on the side opposite the hi-lift jack.

The water also goes on the roof rack.

I keep a first aid kit in the FJ at all times, but I supplement this kit with a more complete "trauma kit".

Many national forests are requiring you also have a bucket if you are going to have a camp fire.

Other items always in the FJ that are useful when camping:

Gloves, hatchet, knives, flashlights, tarps, rain ponchos, deck of cards.

There's more, but this should be a good start for discussion...

Maybe we can work up a recommend list of equipment for camping / expeditions in the FJ...

Black Cherry "WartHog", DR suspension (front and rear), ICON UCA's, AFE CAI, ARB full length roof rack, Hella 500's on bumper and roof rack, Toyota Brush Guard & lights, Scuba Driver Mod, Baja 540c, body mount chop, Demello Sliders,Moto Metal 0951B wheels, Nitto Terra Grappler 285/70/17's

Re: Things you always have when camping

A cooler full of cold beer, food, a lighter, and a comfy chair! That with everything above and we are in for a good weekend!

Toilet paper.

Stove, plenty of food,kerosene or propane lamp, tent, air mattress, and a cooler full of beer. Oh yea, bug repellant. Gotta have that.

Headlight, not the kind on your car.
