A few camping must haves:
1. REI Campbed 3.5
This camp pad was AMAZING...so amazing that I didn't even hear the nearby campsite(maybe a 1 minute walk from our site) that was being so loud that the police were called around 11:30pm by the camp host. HA - Mike even responded to the call and I didn't even know it happened or woke up until Mike got into the tent for the night. Like I said, the sleeping pad was amazing!
2. Wet wipes - I used the Wet Ones brand for my hands and Neutrogena for my face. These were CRITICAL due to all the blowing dirt and the fact that the power went out on Saturday so there was no running water. The Neutrogena wipes were great to wash my face right before dozing off on my sleeping pad.
3. Tuna Salad - It was so windy, any type of fire was out of the question but since I make an impecable Tuna Salad, I did not starve without a grill. Soooo yummy!
4. Walk Easy - This is a harness/collar/bra thing for Boulevard. The camp host actually saw Boulevard dragging me around the camp site so he brought this Walk Easy over and it was fabulous. No pulling or yanking my arm off any longer! I will be purchasing one.

We live in an amazing place - New Mexico really is the 'Land of Enchantment!'
