I've been a tent camper my entire adult life. Part of that is because I love backpacking and part of it is because nearly every memory I have of camping with my family in our pop up when I was a kid includes a lot of yelling and the last day of every trip being just packing and driving. I felt like it was more of an ordeal than it had to be, and packing up a tent never stressed me out in the same way. Flash forward 15 years: it's not so easy to just flee central Texas for the mountains during the months that sleeping in a tent here is terrible. I mean, we still do it, but with husband and stepdaughter it doesn't happen but like once a year now, so we recently got a pup to make the more accessible summer camping actually possible. Well we left our first trip that included the dog and kid this morning, and it took us what felt like forever to pack up. It was like when I was a kid all over again: we were frustrated and snappy at each other, and by the time we got the thing hooked up and ready to roll, we were all tired and annoyed and didn't even spend any more time in the park (we had talked about looking for a geocache before heading home). I know it will get faster and easier with practice and as we get our "system" down for where we are packing things, but I found myself missing our tent. We both kinda thought maybe for 2 night weekend trips outside of needing the summer a/c that we might stick with the tent. All that to say: any encouraging thoughts/advice about how to make packing up more efficient? We talked about doing more of it the night before next time but don't have many other ideas. Anybody stick to tent camping for their quick weekend trips? HELP!
