We’ve had a pretty great fall season over here in Northern California. Lots of good camping to be had and now that we’re in winter-mode, I really feel like I have my camping packing list down. I always used to struggle with what to bring camping, I know I’m not alone! I either didn’t pack enough or I packed way, way too much. So I figured I’d share with you, all of my must-haves when we go glamping/camping, some of which I found out about from my friends, who run a glamping location you can check out at https://whitehouseonwye.co.uk/. We went to Tahoe the week before last and I figured I’d take some fun pictures of my camping set up for you all.
Nothing screams glamping, like a beautifully decorated picnic table! I’m in love with my enamelware from Rove and Swig. So versatile: I use it for camping, backyard parties…and well, KIDS. Also a nice (easy-to-clean) tablecloth really steps up your camping table game, take note folks. That tablecloth was only $11 by the way, and what a world of difference. We’ve used it several times and every stain washes right out.
We were lucky enough to take this Lexus NX F Sport along for the trip. What a fun ride! I really, truly enjoyed driving it. It has all of the benefits of a good-sized SUV but with the sportiness that most SUVs lack. The two-toned red and black interior felt like a full on sports car and the fast acceleration helped too 😉 But when you turn your head around, you realize that you’re actually in a crossover not a coupe. It had all the storage we needed for a 3 day trip for our family of four and then some. And there was plenty of room for the kid’s car seats too! It was the perfect vehicle to bring for a glamping trip when you think about it…it kind of embodies the whole glamping philosophy, amiright? Thank you to Lexus for providing a vehicle for our trip.
