    I am very new to planning notebooks. My sweet husband has ordered my new Erin Condren planner for Christmas. I also ordered one of her journals for keeping track of the books I read and listen to. (158 so far this year) So I believe I have set up that journal just the way I need it for books. By month – favorite quote, books read /listened to, and note page.

    Now I want one for camping. We have a motor coach and we take 16 to 20 trips a year. (We are retired teachers.) Also in January through March we will stay in state park cabins for several weeks. So I want everything in this one bullet journal … favorite cabins, campsites, wish list for gear, recipes / favorite foods, hikes, day trips, actual camping dates and cabin dates, and finally meal plans for each day. (sometimes the nearest grocery store is far away – so I try to meticulously plan and shop before we leave.

    I don’t know anyone personally who uses a bullet journal to help me. I would LOVE an suggestions.

    Thank you!

      It sounds like you have every you would need planned out with that great list Deborah! I can’t think of anything else that I would add to your camping journal. Sounds like a really fun way to spend your time together 🙂

  2. That list of camping places would be a great collection in my bullet journal! I keep track of the packing list and to-dos in a Google Sheet so I can just print it quickly every trip… but it would be fantastic to keep a running list of spots we want to camp written out like that. Love the icon system, too!

    I enjoyed Big Magic, too. Such a powerful book. Did you ever listen to her accompanying podcast?

    It sounds like you enjoy traveling with your dog – I don’t know how big she is, but I make accessories for smaller dogs (20 lb. and under) and one of my new items is a cargo vest harness that I designed especially for camping with little dogs. When we go out with our two fur kids, we store extra bags in the cargo pocket, and there’s an ID pocket in case one of them gets separated from us that we write our campsite location details on. When I read your post I thought you might get a kick out of them 🙂 If you’d like to check them out there’s a picture in my Instagram feed.

    Happy camping!

    1. Thanks so much, Amy! And no, I never did listen to the Big Magic podcast, I’ll have to check it out sometime. Your dog vest sound like a great idea! We don’t let our pup off leash because she’s ridiculously unreliable, but that would be great for an adventure dog 😀

      1. lol Ours are ridiculously unreliable, too! I see these people when were camping with dogs that roam around but stay close to camp and I’m impressed by their training. I wouldn’t expect anything good to happen if we let ours do that 😛

  3. I also grew up camping in that area in Oklahoma. Illinois River, Lake Tenkiller. We still go there and are dear friends with people we met camping over 45 years ago. Great memories!!

    1. That’s so cool! Oklahoma has such gorgeous natural beauty 🙂 I’m happy to say I’m going camping for the first time in years over this coming weekend. Hopefully it’s as fun as an adult as it was as a kid!

  4. Hiya. New reader 🙂 I just wanted to point out that your link to the Trail Through the Leaves just links to the nepali notebook 😉

  5. I just planned my camping trip in my bullet journal and I wish I had seen this before I did! Thanks for sharing.
