  5. Lawn Chairs
    • Enjoy the fire from a chair not the ground 🙂
  6. Axe and Matches/Lighter
    • You might need the axe to chop wood and the matches to light your fire, don’t forget to put your matches in a water proof container so they don’t get wet if it rains.
  7. Spare Water and Food
    • Don’t forget to pack in case of an emergency and you’re stranded. A little extra food and water can go a long way.
  8. Toiletries and Antibacterial Wipes
    • Remember your bathroom items you might need them.
    • Bring Antibacterial Wipes they are more convenient for soap and water when around the fire for your sticky marshmallows or around other messes.
  9. Garbage Bags
    • Go green don’t forget to pick up your garbage. Use a different bag for cans/bottles to recycle later.
  10. Camera
