1. My family most recently camped at Big Bay State Park on Madeline Island in Northern Wisconsin. One of the things I had least planned for was the wet. Everything was wet. Springs ran through camp between sites and naturally all the firewood was wet enough that the first night we ended up with smores via the camper stove. I was able to get enough wood split into enough small pieces that eventually we got a fire going each night but it was more hatchet work than I normally do in 4 camping trips. Nearly every piece had to be split. 2. The room inside my wife's Highlander has been getting pretty cramped as our kids get bigger so this time we took my Avalanche instead. The mileage obviously sucked more but it was more comfortable for everyone and there was a ton more space in the covered bed than the Highlander could ever offer. 3. We almost always camp at electric sites. This has been especially true since I put an electric on demand water heater in the camper so we no longer have to wait 45 minutes for dishes water to heat at each meal. 4. I own an electric log splitter. It's no bigger than a large duffel bag. I am very strongly considering the next time we go camping that I toss the splitter along with an extension cord in the back of the truck. I'm all about sharing and was tossing around the idea of each day placing the splitter out at the end of the driveway to our site, plugged in, and putting a sign by it to let other campers know they are free to use it if they would like. So, if you were in a campground and noticed that you could have free use of a splitter instead of hacking everything up with a hatchet and rock would you use it or does that cross one of the sacred lines of roughing it?
