As I've mentioned, we're long time tent campers, so have our gear pretty well streamlined and not a lot of extra stuff that we don't use. We kept most of the gear (lantern, propane bottles, liquid fuel, tablecloth&clips, paper plates, bowls, silverware, cooking utensils, coffee pot with filters tucked inside, a couple of pots (one is a pressure cooker), hot mitts&pads, cards&cribbage board, foil & two sizes of freezer zipper bags, dishwashing pan, wash cloth, towel & soap, laundry detergent (we usually go out for at least two weeks and are also gone for 6+ weeks in the winter), tent stakes and lines, and probably some other stuff that I'm forgetting all in a blue tote. Nesting and ALL empty space are filled with something makes this possible. We also have a camp stove (that uses the liquid fuel) and sleeping bags, but they are not inside the tote. Not to mention the tent and huge tarp with poles we would bring in case of rain that lasted longer than a day. Oh, and the folding bed and air mattress. We aren't using these with the PUP, so don't need to pack them. Anyway, finally unpacked the blue tote and packed everything in the PUP. I can't believe how much room I have and there is TONS of space that's just empty. Working REALLY hard to not fill all that open space with crap. Really hard.
