"How to camp with four kids" OR"How to move your house to the woods"

Not completely sure of how to title this post I left the options up to you. We are now officially less +Stone Mountain Park camping experience! The trailer's packed... over-packed, and well, now that I think of it we may have over-over-packed.
than a week away from our

I took a tip from a couple of different sites but since I'm a #checklist kind of guy I found myself going back to YourOwnHomeStore quite regularly. She has printable/editable checklists that I like. Beyond that, I used my own judgement. For example; OVER-PACKING+CAMPING=#GLAMPING. That's a mathematical equation. After assembling a #checklist you need reviews. Besides, who's to say what works for one person works for another? For this I always use #blogs. Blogs are social media for people with brains. It's the instant and personal feedback I look for! I found MyRealReview to be the most concise.

Lodging? We're tent people for now. When we get closer to retirement we're going to buy a school bus and convert it into a #schoolie. If you don't know how awesome that is, check out +Schoolies.com. So... being tent folks I submit this review. We've got a +Coleman tent that has seen the end of almost a decade of use. She's a reliable product, like most other things #Coleman puts out. For this trip we'll be using a new +Ozark Trail Tents that we picked up from Wal-Mart. It's the XL Vacation 3-Room Lodge and it's less than $150! +Amazon.com has some reviews on it as well. At this point I CAN tell you that it's been setup in the backyard for the past week while the kids camped in it while I was away. No bugs, rips, or tears... so far, and excellent water repellant.

That's about it for now! There are tons of sites to explore but I encourage you to get personal opinions before spending your hard earned money and winding up in the woods without the right equipment.
