    I honestly don't think I have anything in my pup that uses 110v nor a water hose other than a jug...

    I ensure I have food/water, extra clothes, first aide kit, fire pit, flash lights, wood, an adult beverage, sleeping bags, tire repair kit, tire pump, tools, and other might need stuff. This list is in no particular order!!

    Gee folks, most of the time we are out, we must be boondocking.

    We always have with us white gas 2 burner classic Coleman cook stove with 1/2 gallon of fuel. We also have single burner model we bring as a backup....

    Plus a white gas lantern, LED lights for the camper and our heads.

    A mini Fiskars axe, folding bow saw, folding fire ring, mini shovel, kindling and fire wood. I have been know to bring a pole saw (gas powered) but that's not the norm.

    A complete shower setup but we only use it when we have a water supply nearby. (and its legal)

    A 5 gallon fresh water container.

    We bring an extreme cooler stocked with some ice and filled with various foods and beverages. We do occasionally bring dehydrated food that the spousal unit has made and dried.

    If the camper needs heat, we have a small "Mr Buddy" heater we'll have along in the fall or spring if the temps get cool. We only run this to get in bed, or up in the morning. Our PUP is small and it heats her up in just a few minutes. Of course during cooler camp times, we bring warmer bags that zip together.

    We own a Honda 2000 generator (model?) we've never brought along yet. See above as to why.

    Here is some "boondocking" on the dogs blog

    Checked out your blog, ArlyA - that's a cool looking little camper. And thanks for your work on the NCT! As a Superior Hiking Trail thru-hiker I'm a big fan of the NCT as well. I've only backpacked bits of it in Western Wisconsin but the sections up in the U.P. are something I would really enjoy experiencing someday.

    First part of May 2005 I thru-hiked from North to South. I lived in Duluth for about two years and backpacked many, many sections of it again during '06/'07 too. Love that trail. Love the mountains and truly huge tracts of wild land proper more however so moved out to Montana in '08.
