    The beachside camping looks fun but you couldn’t drag me out to do the regular kind.

    After beachside camping in May in South Georgia, I’ll stick to camping in the mountains or near caves. I thought I would die from humidity.

    My #1 item? A lighter. Or beer. Or both.

      True– humidity and mosquitoes are a risk of beach camping 🙂 I’ve never tried camping in a cave– what’s that like? Any bat encounters? 🙂

    I’m basically a 1st time camper, so thanks for the good tips. BTW you’re engaging on video!

    What about a backpack? Is there a specific one you would recommend? I see a lot of campers with huge backpacks, but for many people that would be way too heavy to carry and also not necessary depending on where you’re camping. On the other hand, would a school backpack be too flimsy?

    My number one camping accessory is a bottle of whiskey. It is not feasible to bring a coolerful of beers when camping.

    In #2 you say to not stress out over evening activities because you will be too tired. This is true, but you will really not stress over them with a couple shots of Old Granddad. There is nothing like a whiskey buzz while enjoying a campfire. A plastic bottle of vodka mixed with crystal light also works.

    Very useful article! I plan on taking my first camping trip in September. Why in the world did I never think of camping on a beach?!? That looks like a wonderful experience.

    I’d like to take a boring picture of me or the tent whenever I Camp. Camera is a must! 🙂 I like the simplicity of camping. I’ve been staying at a comfortable bed for over 2 weeks now, can’t wait to get back to camping!

      Lol– stilettos and camping usually don’t go hand in hand. Although you can always leave the park at night and hit the nearest clubs 😉

    To add to the ‘bring the essentials’ point I’d say don’t bring the non-esentials. When you’re camping travelling light is good and you won’t need half the stuff you take on a normal holiday. I love camping!

      Thanks for your comment! Sorry for the delay– I was traveling 🙂 We enjoyed camping right on the beach in Australia at Ellis Beach in Queensland; we also camped at an RV park near Mission Beach, and at Cape Tribulation in a national park. Hope you enjoy your trip!
