  1. hey thanks….and if we ever share the same camp area, I want you over to my tent for drinks

  2. Love your video. Thanks for the info. Best to you and yours. :O)

  3. great idea with the trash bag at the entrance of the tent never thought of that…….btw….do I detect a slight Southern accent?….are you originally from the South?

  4. The trouble with tents is they work really great until it rains. Plus you have to bring something soft to sleep on. Tents are heavier than a Hammock, a hammock is more comfortable, keeps all of your stuff dry and quicker to setup. Oh did I mention that you can setup a hammock on a down hill slope when you always have to find a level spot for a tent.

  5. HGTV should really be using you as a weekend host! Thanks for the common sense tips! 🙂

    I would only add that a light sanitizer or lemon scented bleach will also cut down on unwanted smells and discourage insect activity.

  6. Add a set of Skyhooks to your camping gear to make hanging your tarps so easy!!

  7. Hey Granny…….nice video. Please tell me the brand of that nice beefy looking cot in your tent. I want one!!! Kenny C.

  8. youv a fantastic pair of jugs there young lady you can minipulate plenty of men into carrying your sacks and bags with those wobbeling up and down …yes very nice jugs

  9. Good vid. Thanks for posting. The idea of the plastic mat at the tent entrance is good. If you are car camping, a door mat works really nicely too!

  10. Great advice. Thanks for the tips. Never thought of the sponge. Much better than a towel.
    You seem too young to be a granny. Made me chuckle.

  11. I don’t know about lugging around a five gallon bucket for camping, even for car camping only bring the essentials so not to get inundated with household stuff which will only take away time from actually camping

  12. AlaskaGranny, this is Michigan Grandpa. Thanks for the great information.
