The more you do it the quicker it gets and it almost becomes automatic. A few weeks ago i had not planned a trip but had a rough week at work and on the spur of the moment thought i`ve gotta get out of here.I`d already made the decision not to tent it just tarp over the car,well that was the quickest pack in history and although i packed more basic than i would normally i didn`t forget anything that i needed,BUT i do have camp boxes packed and ready to go ,like a kitchen box,gets cleaned and repacked ready to go again,same with what i call my fire box,lights,candles,mozzie stuff,gas lighters kept in a box packed ready to go. Bedding packed ready to go so really it was just a matter of putting these boxes in, i grabbed bread rolls, cold meat, milk for coffee, fruit and some cereal, the dogs and their food and off i went.
so don`t stress you will get there... i guess i`m a bit better off as no kiddies....except fur ones
The Lord is my shepard,i shall not want......only sometimes.
