Camping in the Mountains of West Texas

When camping is a part of every get-away you take, your camping gear tends to be packed in such a way that you only need to grab a few bins and head out the door. Kind of like a camping ‘go’ box, if you will.

Currently, my car camping bins are configured in such a way that I have lights stored in each bin for each type of use: a lantern for the table, a small collapsible light for illuminating space inside the tent, considerations for a work light when I might need to make a few quick gear adjustments in the wee morning hours before heading out, a quick bicycle drivetrain adjustment before an early morning ride the next day, a flashlight kept in the truck for roadside emergencies, and a trusty headlamp for just about everything else.
