Campfire

  • Updated

With no campfire to light-up the campsite, you’ll need to bring battery or solar-powered light sources if you want to see anything after dark. Definitely don’t skip the headlamps and consider lanterns and touch lights for softer lighting as needed. Don’t forget additional batteries.

My personal favorite, however, was the pie. I wasn’t sure how good I would be at camping or at cooking over a fire. But when I served up a variation on our favorite cobbler, fireside, at the end of a long day of hiking, the genuine delight I got in return was enough to keep me coming back.
