Challenge: Camping Equipment including Tent, Camp Stove and more.
I am looking for a freestanding lightweight 3-season, 3-person tent that will hold up in both wet & windy conditions (tall is a bonus...I am 6' tall). I am also looking for a 2-burner camp stove that isn't super heavy.
Honestly, it's been a while since we've camped on our own rather than with friends who have a lot of equipment. I am sure that there is a list of camping items that I should have & am not thinking of. I would love input on both items to buy & good deals.
While we will be doing car camping everything needs to be simple to erect/use & relatively lightweight (just me and my 10-year-old setting up camp). The plan is to toss the bikes on top of the car on May 30th & head West from St. Louis on a 5-week adventure through KS, CO, UT, NV, CA, OR, WA, ID, MT, WY & SD. We'll camp along most of the route but we probably won't camp anywhere for more than one night (we're making 2 long stops at friend's homes).
