BTW-Do your forget the temps in NC? Honestly I lived in Ontario and it gets hot as balls at times. Not like it does here, but pretty hot. It's all relative. If I go home now and it's not 60 or higher, I'm cold like a little American girl. And by girl, I mean man.
Ha-Ha, nicely played, eh! I do remember the temps and your right, it was hot as hell. The nice thing about Wilmington (much like the Philly/Jersey Shore diffrences) is the breeze. Whether off the Cape Fear or the ocean, their always seemed to be a nice cool breeze. I had the good fortune of living on Wrightsville Beach for 3 years, what a blast that was. I know what you mean about being cold when you go home. My old man had a place on Marco Island, which is near Naples in South Florida. He spends the whole winter there and when her come home, if its under 80, he's bundled up!

I also keep about 10 feet of cord with me, it comes in hand for a lot of things. Tie it to 2 trees and put a towel over it and you got a tent. A great spot for kids to keep cool.

Wrightsville is pretty nice. We always head that way to the beach too. Hot ladies abound. Here it's just plain hot. It's 95 hear and a few degrees hotter with the heat index. Last week it was around 100. Some days it get into the 3 digits with heat indexes of 115. Now that's hot. Humid heat is killer. Although with the nice weather here, the ladies tend to be wearing skimpier clothes much earlier than the north. That's a plus. Unless your a Maddox. Geez Maddox. What do you do with that cord? Tie unsuspecting victim's up? Scary stuff. Flint? Really? You live in the Mountains of British Columbia? LOL

You never know. I have one in my diaper bag and one in my tackle box. We are going up to Vermont next month and it could come in handy. A flint and striker are very small and well worth their weight if needed.

Say the power goes out in the house and we can't find matches, I got a flint. Might never need it, but if I do I got one.

Just by a few of those gas powered lighters. I use them to start my charcoal starters.

oh please TT3 LET ME PLEEASSE *begs


I use the same one that 57 has. and pretty much has the same amount that quieso has. when my youngest charge was 18 months and the middle one was 3 and the oldest was four and was barely potty trained. i had more than one suit of clothes, my gear was as follows

2 bags of gold fish
1 bag of chex, gold fish and cherios
12 diapers
3 pairs of clothes
diaper creame
sun screen
box of wipes
a few toys for each
socks
spare keys
some tyelnol
first aid kit

for the both of them prezdad, i recommend another spare suit of clothes for each. and most of what the dads here have.

now that they are older (3, 5 and seven) i mostly use the diaper bag as their activity bag
2 bags of gold fish
1 bag of chex, gold fish and cherios
swimsuits
sunscreen
pullups for the younger one (just in case)
underwear for the younger one
a couple extra suit of clothes for the younger one
wipes if they need to use the bathroom at the park
a few toys

Now that the boys are a little older it is not so mucha daiper bag anymore.
2 changes of clothes one for each boy
1 bicycle tool kit (they really are multi purpose)
1 one teflon coated rescue knife
1 Flint and Steel( two bucks and any store that sells camping supplies)
one gallon bag of dried fruit strips and one gallon bag of granola
a compass and a map of oklahoma ( yes an honest to god map? no gps for me )
two pens two pencils and a small acid free sketch pad.
coupla baby blanket s and about 5 foot of parachute cord for impromtu tents, hikes and rides out and such


Really all thats missing is diapers and formula and you got a good go bag but we tend to venture in to the wild more than others around us so this setup might not work for you

the single most important kid item in the world is the baby wipe! my boy is nearly 12 and I still keep them around!!! Went thru a whole box of them just last week, was teaching a woodworking class for cubscouts, after building our picture frames we painted them, no towles, no paper towels anywhere to be found, 35 kids with paint on there hands, went to the truck and came back a hereo! NEVER LEAVE HOME WITHOUT THEM!
