BYOT (bring your own toilet)

This weekend we’re heading out for our first camping adventure in Oregon! I’ve yet to camp north of the Redwoods (Santa Cruz mountains) and I can’t wait to explore a new plot of PNW land. We’re headed to Cape Lookout State Park on the coast. I’ve read great things about the hiking, old growth trees and whale sightings. And I’m crossing my fingers that I can suit up in my bikini if the weather forecast holds true.

We haven’t gone camping since the move from California. The moving company was super thorough and actually went through our camping containers, wrapping the contents in enough paper to stuff a king size mattress. Anyways, I’m sorting through the contents, taking inventory and making a list of anything I need to grab before we head out on Friday.

Truth be told, as long as we have a tent, blankets, firewood and mini toilet, we will be just fine. Yes, a mini toilet is now a Bodie camping staple. This is the world we live in. 
Isaac, my genius husband, brought the mini toilet with us the last time we camped and it was a game changer. Because camping with kids is awesome. But walking kids 100 yards to the campground bathroom in the middle of the night is not.
