It's Memorial Weekend, finally! We've been patiently waiting for this since the last holiday weekend...when was that again?

For those headed on an adventure this weekend, we've put together 5 must-haves that everyone has forgotten at home one time or another. Warning: these are everything-but-the-kitchen-sink types (probably not for the ultralite crew).

Memorial Weekend Camping Item #5: The perfect camping chair. Whether it's Big Agnes' 6oz pad-into-chair kit, or thee ultimate chair with all the bells & whistles, it doesn't matter. Everyone needs it.

 Item #4: PLENTY of Ice, preferably in a YETI so it doesn't melt. Haven't heard of YETI? Watch this epic battle between a YETI & a Grizzly:

YETI vs. Bear

Item #3: Fire starters. It's never the firewood that gets left behind, it's the small stuff...like a lighter. Who knows how to start a fire from scratch these days?

 Item #2: Sun protection. Hat, sunglasses, SPF ~ you need it all, make a sunshine kit that's easy to grab and go.

Item #1 Reese's Peanut Butter Cups.

<----- Any questions?

Drive safe & have fun this weekend. If you have any must-haves for us, we'd love to hear them!
