Finally heading to the lake tomorrow. Once we get there, I have a tree to take down and cut up before I can put my camper back in its spot, so it will be a busy day. We didn't get time this week to pack the camper, so will do that tomorrow morning, which should go quickly. My question is, as far as extra stuff in your food cabinets, what are your necessities to bring along? Salt, pepper, seasonings, condiments, etc.

Oh, and to clarify, I'm not taking down a tree so that I can put my camper in its place. This is the same spot I put my camper each year, but this tree has developed a large and dangerous split right down to the base, so it must go.

I can't really make any suggestions since I'm not a camper. I think I would have to duplicate most of what I have at home (I never could pack light! =D). Seriously though, probably some seasoning mixes like taco, Italian, Cajun, Old Bay, Greek, a hot sauce, garlic powder, lemon pepper - see, I told you I could never pack light! Have fun - although it's hard to see why you need to get away when you have such a beautiful yard!

Garlic seasoning, either salt, powder or fresh. Corn meal, in case you fish or want to make cornbread. Onions--I can't cook without those, lol! At least one all-purpose seasoning, such as Greek seasoning, Montreal, or lemon pepper. Flour and baking powder for biscuits, or not?

I season my meats prior to any camping tip and freeze them to pack so I don't need to many seasonings, but I usually keep the basics in the trailer. Salt, pepper, seasoning salt. I also have a small ziplock bag with about a cup of sugar and one of flour. A small container of veggie oil to.

I'd run with garlic, basil, dill and if nothing else montreal seasonings. hope this is a fishing/ catching expedition. cornmeal flour and butter! remember beer makes a great batter better!

All your suggestions run pretty close to mine. Keep them coming! Gary, no fishing this weekend. Too much work to do, plus the pontoon isn't going this weekend. If you need a break from the southern heat, come on up. I got room for 14 on the toon and I just put fresh batteries in the blender :)

And I can always find an extra chainsaw if you can make it tomorrow, lol!

"Chuckle!) I know how that works! More to your point, you figure out your menu for the couple of days that your going to be away from home, and the menu's...from that, you should be able to call up whatever you need, and maybe toss in a couple of "extra's" if you want to get 'exotic', but remember to pull them after you get home... Too many times have I gone to the cottage and found my seasonings were badly over aged, and did not get it done, fresh is always best!

It should Gary. I have a plan that should allow me to drop that tree pretty safely, but if I'm not back on Monday, you can have my pet rock collection.

i'll need the cage.

Take a lot of chilled beer with you; drive over the tree and let it either snap up into your motor mounts or be able to be sawed away by other, less urgent means, and claim a weak back or shoulder (given you have a winch to get you out of trouble)...good old redneck methods!

Beer and a cooler filled with ice....most important. Have fun Duboo, and get rid of that tree. I'm packing my camper up today too.

My favorite time of year Sherri. It doesn't matter what is going on at work when you're at the lake :)
