My wife and I are going on a hike/camp soon. Help me compile a list of shit i need. I havnt been camping since i was a kid and I am Army now. I dont want to have my wife laying in dirt and fire ants, so what do I need for a comfortable camping experience. We will be hiking about 6 miles in, I will have a Gen2 ILBE on my back and she will have a 5.11 48hr bag. If you dont want to give a huge long list, just gimme some stuff that people forget

It was off topic now that i think about it. Has anyone here ever given themselves a hydration enema if they were not capable of drinking due to pain. I recetly had surgery and was stumbling around and shivering. I drank the only way I knew how

No need to get fanny sore about it bud :^).

Anyways Id work your first aid kit in accordance with fire ants, dehydration, swamp ass etc..
Id make sure your campsite is brushed away and clear so you dont wake up with any extra friends in your sleeping bags.
Other than that everything I listed before should be fine for you. Its Georgia so its not like its anything dangerous unless your allergic to fire ants

bring 2 epi pens with ya Id say too. Ive only traveled through Georgia so I dunno how their bee population is, but if youre 6 miles from your car it wouldnt hurt to be safe.

Wtf? Warren Oates as Sgt. Hulka from 'Stripes', the Big Toe of the Foot?

Whatever, you're fucked up on meds.

Here's your lust list:

2 - Nemo Noturne 30 bags. Zip together "couples" bags. Trust me.

2 - Big Agnes Q-Core SL inflatable pads. Comfort is key to climbing on top of her!

2 - Thermarest LuxuryLite UltraLite Cots. These are the key to getting her off the ground with those fucking fire ants! No stone will probe her backside w/o your permission! Under 3#'s, (2.65#'s).

Combine the cots with the pads and zip together bags and your on the inside.. if you know what Iean, wink, wink, nudge, nudge.

2 -Helinox Chair One. You will need to sit off the ground and ply her with wine first. These are just 2#'s.
