Bug Spray and an IPhone!
My family and I love hiking and camping in Eastern Carolina! Back when my husband and I worked for the National Parks, camping to us was backpacking with everything you needed. A small tent, sleeping bag, water filter, and a little food! Now adays, we are so exhausted from packing up the truck with all the necessary gear, that once we get where we are going, we just want to sit back & relax! It's funny how things change!
Each year, our tent gets bigger, our cooler gets fuller, and we add one more thing to the ever growing list of "things we need". Air matresses, pump for the air matresses, a larger camp stove, a larger camp table, an extra lantern, an extra flashlight, blah, blah, blah. Heck, we even take the checker board and a deck of cards.... just in case it rains!
If I had to pick just 2 items to throw in my backpack for survival purposes these days...... They would be Bug Spray and my Handy, Dandy Iphone! Not only do I prefer to play Angry Birds without being eaten alive, but I can still work.... If I need to!
Gosh, I love being a REALTOR®.
