Although not really hunting related its close because I will use this as a scouting and fishing trip. The GF wants to go camping and the only camping I ever did was backwoods deer hunting stuff where we didn't take a bunch of stuff and pretty much roughed it. I haven't done this in probably 5yrs or so and not really sure how to go about just doing a state park camping trip. Below is some of the things I am kind of thinking about but need some advice. 1) I have a eureka 8 man tent that is in about 70% good condition. The only concern and issue I have ever had with this tent is the floor is made of polyester and gets wet. Thoughts on spraying a couple coatings of waterproofing on it? Tarp underneath? I'm also looking at a cabin style tent so we have room to stand and get dressed. Not sure what to get though. 2) I cant sleep on the ground and usually do a cheap air mattress. Anyone use the higher air mattresses that sit say 3ft off the ground? I'm afraid they will sink through the night. 3) Should I spring for cast iron pots and pans or will normal ones work for cooking on an open fire? Also, don't you have to season the cast iron pans or something like that before use? 4) She loves coffee and cant go without it in the morning. Any tips on making coffee on the fire? 5) I also don't want to spend a fortune on this stuff above or on a fire grate to cook on. I thought about rigging something up with rebar to sit pots on.
