spent an hour today going through the camping boxes in the garage, ticking it off against the 1 A4 page of 10font (3 columns) list of equipment that needs to be crammed into the Volvo. Realised there are around 150 items - ok, it includes food items and games for DSs.
We're off with friends from school when the boys break up and they aren't regular campers. Thought about sharing my list but then felt they might think it a bit anal and wonder if I had camping OCD?
You could just say you want to compare lists so that you don't double up on stuff, for instance you would only need one washing up bowl and washing up liquid wouldn't you, and there must be other things. Say you want more room for wine. That way they won't think you are mad OCD just that you are an alcoholic.
