First off we did not reserve a camp spot. Bad idea for the last weekend before school starts again. We drove through six or seven camp grounds before we found a spot. This spot happened to be a mile away from the nearest water. We went up into the Uintahs by Mirror Lake.
We got there in time for lunch... we forgot to pack the lunch meat. As good as lettuce and mustard sandwiches sounded we improvised with hot dogs on bread... Yum. After lunch, we set up the tent. At least we tried. There were no stakes in the bag, and this tent requires stakes to stay up. So we quickly made stakes from sticks.
Anyway, long story short we forgot to pack several useful cooking utensils and paper towels. We all had a great time and will always remember our first camp out.
Yummy camp food!!
