Going camping this weekend with the wife, kid (2 yr old), and dog. My nephew will join us for a night as well.
I don't think I can bring in firewood, and also can't even think of paying $5 for a bundle of 5 splits... so I need some hand tools.
Who makes a nice hand saw? Fiskars products haven't served me wrong, so I was going to start my search there.
I've got a hatchet, double bit axe (don't think I'll need to fell anything, but you never know), small (7") brush saw, pocket knife...
What else for firewood purposes? Is the axe even useful?
And since we're on the subject of camping... what gear do y'all find essential and conversely useless? i.e. cooking grate vs. propane grill, or whatever.
I'll be packing a Subaru Outback with the passenger compartment full of, well, passengers. Have a roof basket, and the rear hatch. So gotta be a minimalist but prepared. This is our first trip, so its only for 4 days, but there's still plenty to pack.
