We went camping this weekend on a spur of the moment decision.
We didn’t take too much time to decide where to go. (Mt. Tam State Park, just north of the Golden Gate Bridge. Complete with breathtaking views and a 20 minute drive away from home.) We didn’t want to spend too much money to make the trip happen.
While camping I usually prefer to plan a fun and exciting menu full of all kinds of treats.
This time around we went the easy and cheap route. We hadn’t been grocery shopping in two weeks, yet we were still able to find plenty of shelf-stable and camp-ready food on our shelves: ramen, dehydrated vegetarian curry, a chocolate bar and instant oatmeal comprised our lunch, dinner and breakfast.
It was rather refreshing to head out without needing to plan anything or make a special trip to the store.
I enjoyed getting out there, without the big production that camping can all too often turn into.
All told, our little get away cost less than $50 including firewood, campsite fees and gas.
What kind of fun did you find this weekend?
