I got bought a 12 x 11 foot tent, some padding, sleeping bags, etc. for camping out. I live just an hour from the shore, but I got this idea to camp out closer by Friday and Saturday nights. This is Jersey, the bugs are not satisfied to merely outnumber the toilets. We will have toilets though and hot showers and of course lots of tables and chairs and an ice machine just in case. I'm not Paul Bunyan y'know. There are lots of camp grounds in the area to choose from so I'll be comparing prices, amenities, and distance from the shore for a while. This is not the first time I have been camping. However, this time I am not going to try to cook on the campfire as I find it too difficult. We are bringing a propane hotplate. Any advice will be welcome.
