@Asia:  get one of those 2 person sleeping bags so you can snuggle!

something like this:


also, get an air mattress if your tent is big enough–you’ll sleep waaaay better! we go camping every year, and last year was the first time we had an air mattress (instead of those tiny camping pads) and it was wonderful! we had one of those crazy 12″ thick ones.

@pineapplez17:  Oh hell yes! We just got a queen size sleeping bag and it’s the bestest ever!  Get a really good air mattress too, or a couple of thise spiffy extra-wide, extra-thick thermarests.

Bring lots of firewood. Snugglng in front of a campfire after dark is pretty much the most romantic thing I can think of.

Bring a french press and a milk frother if you are coffee drinkers. You can make pretty awesome espresso drinks.

Bring a book to read together by the fire! We like short stories for camping, so we can switch back and forth. we like folk tails and Neil gaiman, but perhaps romantic stories, or something that’s unique to your shared interests as a couple! I also like a slow morning in the fresh air. French toast over the fire and just relaxing together can be so romantic!

While our company doesn’t offer anything like this, so we can’t offer any insight, I just wanted to say that, personally, that sounds like so much fun! (My husband would love for us to do a trip like that!). Have fun and best wishes!!!

Honestly, you really have me inspired me to do something different as my husband is hitting a “milestone” birthday in a couple of weeks and I’ve been at a loss for ehat to do because he keeps insisting that he wants nothing and doesn’t want to do anything special. He loves camping and I don’t. BUT… A backyard camp-out sounds like it would be a great surprise! Tomorrow I’m going to ask friends to borrow a tent, get some sleeping bags (probably just buy those), and get fixings for smores and make those in the firepit. Thanks again for the inspiration!! My husband will love it!

Get binoculars and make a list of things to look for, scavenger hunt style. Have little prizes ready- first person to ten gets a backrub, first person to spot a bison gets an ice cream, etc. 

Go to the Roller Derby in Jackson. Those girls kick so much ass. 

Rock Climbing in the Tetons. 

Take a fly fishing lesson. TAKE A FLY FISHING LESSON. Then cook your fresh catch that night over the fire. 

Get some of those battery-operated Christmas tree lights to hang in your tent or around your campsite. I can’t even imagine how cool a tent would look lit up like that!

Moonlight hikes out to open meadows are soooo fun. With bear spray, duh. 

Learn to read a topo map and go on an adventure together to find a secluded peak or a lake. 

Learn to geo-cache and do that around Yellowstone and in the Tetons. You buy a GPS unit, find the coordinates of a cool spot people have hidden a cache, and find it based on the coordinates on your GPS. It’s like an interactive treasure map. So, so cool. Take pictures at each cache and write a little note in the book about your honeymoon. Some people do a take-a-trinkit-leave-a-trinkit thing, so maybe bring along something little from your wedding to leave in the cache box. 

As you go on your trip, adopt a “why not” attitude. Ridiculous roadside attraction? Why not. Invited to a locals BBQ? Sure thing! An extra wine with dinner? WHY NOT? Route beta from that guy whose been camping in his van at the trailhead for a month? Uhhh… duh. It’s one of the best ways to open up and experience new things on trips. So many cool experiences! Especially when you’re invited to spend time with strangers. Sure, I’m concerned about the Craigslist Killer but I’ve only had amazing, awesome experiences.

We are huge campers and are going on a month long road trip from WI to NM, AZ, and CA!   I am so excited to hear other Bees are doing this too!  We spend all our nights around the campfire and cook all our meals there!  If you don’t already have one get a tripod for cooking on.  It makes it much easier to cook and you can controll the temp better by raising and lowering the rack.  Then you can also use a pan for bacon and eggs in the morning and cook right on the rack for burgers and steaks! 

When we go camping we always like to pick up brochures at gas stations or the rest stops to see what is fun to do in the area. 


What I would like to do is take all our addresses and labels with us and send out post cards as our thank yous from different spots we stop at!  That way we can write a few of them together each night.
