A few years ago when we really started camping a lot I made this camping journal to keep a record of our trips. It's just a simple blank journal with added Thickers letters, a ribbon tied around the front cover and a picnic table charm bookmark. Every trip is documented with where we stayed, campsite #, highlights and things I want to remember. Below is the entry for the very first trip we took with our new pop-up camper. Greg forgot his clothes, it rained most of the weekend, and we had hot dogs for dinner one night. All things I will enjoy reading about many years from now don't you think?
Somethng new I am going to start this year is to collect a stone from every trip and write the date and place on it like this:

I have the perfect glass urn for them in my dining room. One of our favorite places to go camping has a huge lake so rocks are easy to find.
Camping is something my family did together a lot when I was growing up and I want to make and remember those memories with my own family as well.
