    Thank you

  2. TheMuddman74 on February 23, 2021 at 10:30 pm

    Jeez, what in the world do you drive? A U-haul truck? Seriously though, you guys have great tips but I keep seeing how much stuff you have for two people and I am actually wondering what you drive or how you pack/carry it all? Trailer? Thanks in advance for your response

  3. Jill Peterson on February 23, 2021 at 10:31 pm

    If you forget the bbq cleaner. You can take aluminum foil. Balled up. When the grill is hot, rub the foil on it. And it’s clean.

  4. afterstars on February 23, 2021 at 10:31 pm

    First aid kit with pain reliever/fever reducers could come in handy from my experience

  5. Lisa Bowe on February 23, 2021 at 10:33 pm

    The music is loud in the background of your video. Great info!

  6. Katherine Bishop on February 23, 2021 at 10:34 pm

    Great camping checklist! Thx! How about a lantern? I’m going to try the solar Luci light on our next trip.

  7. Jessica kent on February 23, 2021 at 10:36 pm

  13. Rick Sanchez on February 23, 2021 at 10:41 pm

    If on a budget, certainly me, goodwill is a hotspot for buying kitchen utensils, pots n pans, and other camping supplies.

  14. Kristy Burroughs on February 23, 2021 at 10:44 pm

    lmao! millennials first world problems.. electronic getting overheated while camping 🙂 Make sure you bring the electronics their own personal ice chest to protect them, hahahaha!

  15. Mr robot XX on February 23, 2021 at 10:44 pm

    I need a 110 inch TV.

  16. Mike Batterham on February 23, 2021 at 10:46 pm

    Fun video, thanks

  19. Redneck Girl on February 23, 2021 at 10:46 pm

    Hey, I’m just one person and use a 4-person tent. I like my space. One of the best investments I’ve made lately is a camp chair that sits on the ground. I paid more for that than I did the regular camp chairs. It’s dang comfortable, though. I’d also recommend plenty of ammo and a firearm you are familiar with. And, always carry with a round in the chamber. But I live in bear country.

    We are new to camping and will be taking our first tent camping trip in October! This may be a silly question but when all the ice has melted in the coolers…..what is your suggestion to get more?! Do people typically leave their campsite (everything still set up) to go drive to the nearest location with ice? I know some of the state parks here in TX have wood & ice kiosk but if they don’t? Thanks for these tips!!

  30. Jen Liu on February 23, 2021 at 10:59 pm

    Very helpful. Can you make a baby or 2 and update your essential list. 😄 I’d like to watch that video.

  31. socalled on February 23, 2021 at 11:00 pm

    U can use a half of an onion to clean the grill

  32. Har Megiddo on February 23, 2021 at 11:00 pm

    Subbed and a huge bike packer! Have fun on your trip

  33. Cassandra Castillo on February 23, 2021 at 11:04 pm

  39. Michael A. Jaccino on February 23, 2021 at 11:09 pm

    You guys are great. Thanks

  40. khelil charef Sonia on February 23, 2021 at 11:10 pm

    You guys just amazing, thanks for your helpful tips. There is one more thing which I personally think is vital, the matches or at least two lighters. I do have a sensitive skin therefore I would recommend a sunscreen, too

  41. Preston Tom on February 23, 2021 at 11:10 pm

    Omg…I love you guys…I’d so go camping with you…btw…I love your Canada chair. 🇨🇦

  42. eelnna la on February 23, 2021 at 11:14 pm

    Eliminate the grill brush…yuck.
    Grab a ball of foil with your cooking tongs…use the foil to clean the crud off of the grill. Works better than anything I know with no dangerous metal bristles that can break off. Great video!!

  43. Ivette Chin on February 23, 2021 at 11:14 pm

    You guys are very pleasant, good job!

  44. Addison Raven on February 23, 2021 at 11:15 pm

    Arnt you supost to have a pocket knife to?

  45. skyline on February 23, 2021 at 11:16 pm

    Condoms

  46. Charlene Roestoff on February 23, 2021 at 11:16 pm

    You can clean a hot grill using half an onion and rubbing the grill with it over the heat.

  47. Shellie Ramsey on February 23, 2021 at 11:17 pm

    Y’all are too cute thank you for sharing these!

  48. Marli Goes Camping on February 23, 2021 at 11:18 pm
