Hi, I just wanted to say thanks for all the great tips and advice on this forum. We had our first family camping trip a couple weeks ago and it was fantastic. We went to Neurum Creek with two other sets of friends and their families and dogs. We all had a great time. Our 19 month old son absolutely loved it. All our gear worked perfectly and much to my wife's suprise our morning toast and toasted sandwiches were spot on every time - thanks again for all the info on cookers, toasters, tents, lamps, kitchens etc.
The only downside was how jealous I got walking around the camp site seeing the amazing setups some of the veterans had. I watched one family setup their camp trailer. In the space of a cup of coffee, they nearly had their entir camp site up. It was great to see each of the family members jump in and get "their" jobs done. It looked like a well oiled machine. Hopefully that'll be us in a few years.
We can't wait to plan our next trip.
