I was just in contact with a good backpacking friend of mine, Jason Klassand he has turned me onto a simple, cheap way to inflate your non-inflatingsleeping pad. No more getting dizzy, or out of breath while inflating your pad. No need to waste room on a 12v, or battery operatedair compressor.

Pretty good idea/deal, for $3.95

We've got a coleman camping kit... It includes a fairly spacious tent, a couple of folding chairs, a coleman propane "stove" and a couple of sleeping bags. We gave the sleeping bags to the Girl Scouts (my wife is the scout leader), and we pack one of those inflatable beds, sheets and blankets in the trailer. Since most parks have fire pits or something similar, we also pack a small frying pan and a small coffee pot and fire-starting stuff.



We don't pack charcoal (it makes a mess), but we do buy it in small quantities if we think we're ready to cook.

I will tell you what I have learned from many years of tent camping on a bike.

whne you think you have everything you are going to need to go.

lay it out in the middle of the room.

See how many times you have doubled up on something. take those things out.

look at everything again. then remmember what you did not use last time and take those items out.

3rd look. what food are you taking? will you eat it? will you cook it? do you really like it? take those items out.

Now you are getting down to reality.

Last thing, when you go to buy equipment. buy the best you can afford at the time. If not you will buy the same stuff next year and the next year and next year, you get my drift. Also the cheap stuff will fail you when the rain is coming in on you at 2 am and at that time you will be cussing yourself.

Hail the size of golf balls, at Mt. Rushmore? You must have been there the same time I was! I was there in May '09, and had to hit a KOA because of hail.

Looks likewe missed each other by a year. Here is a pick of a hail stone next to a souvenir coin that measures 1 1/2 inches across

I agree with waltharper. Buy the best you can, and pack as light as possible. I keep whittling down the pile and I still have yet to use everything I bring. Clothing is something I always over-pack and under-use.
