Are you looking for a list of essential items to pack for your next camping weekend at the cabin?
Each time I go camping or on vacation, I always forget at least one thing. So I’ve learned to enjoy the ride and not sweat the details too much when it comes to packing for a road trip.
I’ve been fortunate to enjoy many getaways across the USA and Canada and with these experiences, I’ve accumulated a fine-tuned camping trip packing list.
My next weekend getaway includes a cabin reservation at Black Hawk Lake Recreation Area near Cobb and Highland, WI for myself and a friend and so below, I’m happy to share my cabin camping packing list.
Keller and I had a chance to ride the longest zipline in the lower 48 USA States, called Windrider at Ski Apache in Alto, NM, near Ruidoso.

This adventure experience was wrapped up during our family vacation from Wisconsin to New Mexico and we’re happy to let you know that the Ski Apache zipline tour near is extremely fun and well worth your family time.
The day before we left on our family roadtrip from Wisconsin to New Mexico, we were blessed with a double rainbow over our house. We left on our family vacation with my 3 boys and adorable wife from Mineral Point, Wisconsin and drove into Kansas City, MO where we crashed hard! The next day we […]

Last week, we hit the pavement for a fun, adventure-filled family vacation at Breezy Point Resort near Brainerd, MN. We left the pets with family and traveled from our home near Madison, WI to Breezy Point Resort, which we found to be relaxing, enjoyable and, an all inclusive family destination (which we chose for its proximity to Wisconsin.)
The Breezy Point Resort is a 4 season resort located just outside Brainerd, MN in central Minnesota. There’s many services which are included with the timeshare we booked via RCI at Breezy Point Resort which included use of the shuttle, multiple indoor swimming pools (with hot tubs, kiddie pools, etc), numerous restaurants on site (or favorite was the Dockside Lounge which overlooks the beautiful lake) and our boating tour on the Breezy Belle!
Please note, our family went on a free tour of Pelican Lake aboard the Breezy Belle with yummy pizza from the Dockside Lounge thanks to Breezy Point Resort in exchange for this review.
Thanks to Breezy Point Resort for providing accommodations for our tour of Pelican Lake aboard the Breezy Belle in exchange for this review (and the Dockside pizza!) we loved our stay, big time!
The arcade at Breezy Point Resort was a hit!
In addition to the Breezy Belle, Coffee House and arcades, other highlights at Breezy Point Resort include multiple swimming beaches; boat rentals at the Breezy Point Resort Marina (non-motorized aka kayaks, canoes, paddle boats, paddle boards,etc and motor boats, including party barges); and the Spa.
Our family loves spending time outdoors to rough-house (or wrestle as we call it), play sports, ride bikes, take walks and when it’s dark outside, build a campfire, watch the stars come out or catch fireflies. When I found out that we’d have the opportunity to try out a new glow-in-the-dark basketball called Reactorz, I […]
