Our Favorite Summer First: Camping

Celebrate your summer’s favorite firsts! Camping, barbecuing, or traveling – what’s your favorite first this summer?

About 3 years ago I decided that our family should start camping. Neither my husband or I grew up in families that camped, but I always loved going with friends. It took a few months of convincing my New York City born and raised husband that camping would be fun, but he finally agreed to give it a try. We borrowed all the gear we needed and headed out to a campground near our home for our first camping expedition ever. We had a great time, but haven’t done it again – until this summer! Next week we are heading out on our first camping trip far from home and our first time camping in a national park.

Packing for a camping trip is unlike packing for any other trip you’ll ever take. You literally have to bring everything and the kitchen sink with you. You have to think about beds, food, bathroom, first aid – and this time we are hiking in a national park so I have to prepare for that as well.

With two active kids who love to climb and explore everything in sight, we always end up with a scrape or two. For this trip I’m packing a new product in our first aid kit – Puracyn® OTC Wound & Skin Care. Puracyn is the new “first step in first aid.” You spray Puracyn right on a cut or wound as soon as it happens, which is especially useful when you are camping or hiking and running water is not exactly readily available. I prefer to get those scrapes cleaned out immediately so we can avoid infection. I’ll be stashing the Puracyn in my backpack so we’re set to go. Puracyn® OTC Wound and Skin Care is available at your local Meijer, Rite Aid and Walgreen’s.
