my mind is going blank for what I need when we have our first trip

Just the things that we will need to buy , (not things like cutlery, washing up liquid, smellies etc etc)

we have just got...(or on order)

tent!!!!!

sleeping bags

water container

blankets

beds

mini stove

kettle

chairs

(need midgie spray, pan, washing up bowl???)

surely there must be lots more?!

A radio maybe? We got a wind up one, but would advise getting one that you can charge at the mains before you go then just wind to top the charge up, cos we found it a pain winding it continuously

I think you have the main things there i can't think of anything else.

and washing up liquid/clothes/scourer to wash up said cooking utensils?
