    Never been to AZ in Sept.; I used to get out that way in March or April usually- I had a cousin living in Flag. I used to drive out there, pick him up and we'd go exploring for a couple weeks. I have been to Jerome a couple of times though; saw a concert there too.

This whole process is followed by getting far too little sleep before waking up, dark and early, to start my early morning "checking of the rig" process, which is basically another mad scramble through the house trying to figure out where my wife's keeping the batteries for the camera these days, and wondering if I remembered to pack the toothbrush that goes along oh so well with the toothpaste that I know for sure I packed... I think, in there next to the socks and chonies.

    Or something like that.
    It's every camping trip I've ever taken.

    WOW and i thought we carried alot of crap, well most of our stuff is already packed as we have a campertrailer and it's permanently in the trailer.

    All we do is pack some clothes, put food in the fridge in the trailer, 12v fridge/freezer in the car with food and beer and we are off.

    These offroad trailers are very popular in Australia because they go anywhere, where ever the car will go the trailer is designed to go too, they are tough and very flexable and designed to carry everything you need to go bush, and are self sufficient with LPG/Propane and 12volt power for remote travel.

    All up the trailer is 1.3ton approx, we also travel with our 2 dogs

    Baz, I think you should post these pics up in the Expedition Trailer section of the forum. I can say without a doubt that you likely have the most luxurious (and largest) bush camp of any who have posted here on the Portal (barring actual live-in 4wd RV's or hard-side trailers). Very nice!

    Good call, Baz. Like Chris said, post up some beta in the trailer section about your handsome set up.

    I tried once...ONCE...to make a list and I found out that it was a big pain to run through everything and check it off as I packed for a trip; and I just couldn't seem to make it complete enough. So, I can't pretend to be Mr. Super Organized on a piece of paper...like Baz, we keep everything packed and ready to roll. No trailer, but in bins that we toss in the truck and go.

    We're pretty good about cleaning up and repacking when we return. I suppose making an inventory list will help me know what we have, but so far a list on paper hasn't been helpful for packing. If I did have one, I'd be able to share it here like a good citizen of ExPo.

    I may have missed it on somebody's list but what about the pack it in, pack it out aspect of toilets. This is especially critical in areas seeing a lot of campers.

    Oh man, no worries! What we failed to convey was this: "WAY COOL set up! We want to hear more about it, and there's even a nifty section for trailers."

    Something like that, really.

    In Australia we have poo bags for dogs and cats when in the bush, and bury and burn for human waste, it's basicly a shovel and a box of matches, we also have a rubbish bag that goes over the spare wheel, any rubbish is put in this and put in the nearest trash can as you call them, there is a saying here, take nothing but photos and leave nothing but foot prints

    We love the bush and do everything to protect it

    ......now you know why we needed a 1 ton truck to haul all that junk around. The list was even longer for the return trip. Strangely enough Canadian Customs did not even look at the truck and camper when we returned, so all the detailed updates I did (by hand) to the inventory (not shown here) for our return were a waste of time.

    Cheers
