RE: What is your latest first world problem ?
Another overnight shift, 3 portable electronic devices with which to entertain myself, only 1 charger and the closest plugin doesn't quite reach where I need to be most of the night.

This will require some juggling if I am to avoid getting paid to be bored.

I know that feeling!! I am a hotel women married to a camping man.

Tent, air mattress, bedding, drinks, ice, food, ALL the stuff you need to make that food (this is the hardest part me me - remembering all that stuff), paper towels, garbage bags, a roll of toilet paper, matches, one of those long lighters to light a fire, lighter fluid, wood for burning, chairs for sitting around the fire, clothes, toiletries, cards games and a good book for the day time.... I think that's everything.

I hope that the world turns, and things get better. But what I hope most of all is that you understand what I mean when I tell you that, even though I do not know you, and even though I may never meet you, laugh with you, cry with you, or kiss you, I love you.

Pffft! Facepalm

Beer, machete, sleeping bag. Everything else will be extracted from your surroundings or else you didn't need it in the first place. Dodgy

But now I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.

Laugh out load I had a feeling of hear that from somebody. Hey, for a hotel girl I think that's pretty minimal. At least I'm not one of those types with a huge ass camper with tv, ac, a toilet, and wifi Dodgy

I dunno about bedding or chairs... that stuff... too heavy.

If I go camping I like to just have enough that I can carry. 2 man tent, sleeping bag, thin foam sleeping roll, change of clothes, fire, water, knife, torch, map (depending on whether or not I wanna get lost), food, rain gear, medical kit... You can be pretty comfy... Oh fuck I forgot coffee - never leave home without coffee...

What I meant by bedding was a sheet to cover the air matress, a blanket, and a pillow. All that can be stuffed into a garbage bag for easy carrying. Also with the chairs, just lawn chairs. You gotta have something to sit on Tongue

RE: What is your latest first world problem ?
Pretty much the same except minus the tent and plus a tomahawk and 550 paracord. For shelter, if it's even necessary, I just spread out my poncho and use some of the 550 to hang it over my sleeping bag, which has a waterproof liner to keep out moisture from below. Saves me from having to carry a tent, weighs a lot less, requires less setup space, saves time.
