As the kids get older, our summer vacations are moving away from the beach. The kids and the parents like to stay active and as much as we love the beach, a week is just too long for this active crew. Last year we took Cruise to Alaska and this year we took a Dude Ranch Vacation. A far cry from the beach. However, it is hard to pack for since the mornings are cool and the day can be in the 80’s. I thought I would share some things that were essential for our trip.
-Jeans–Several pairs, Save one just for evenings as they get very dusty from riding
-Lightweight, breathable shirts (I prefer anything with a SPF rating)
-Riding boots with a 1″ heel and smooth sole
-Light windproof jacket and fleece jacket
-Long socks for riding, wool or wool blend is ideal My husband found out the hard way these are a must.
-Rain jacket and fleece jacket
-Cowboy/ cowgirl hat
Accessories and Other Items to pack for a dude ranch vacation
-Day pack– if you plan on hiking
-Comfortable clothing (yoga or relaxing)
-Socks (wool or wool blend; feel the best)
-Gloves and warm hat (chilly mornings and evenings)
-Lip balm with sunblock
-Flashlight -our ranch provided them in the cabins, but it gets dark
-Camera and memory card– WE used our phones the most.
Whenever I travel for a couple days, I pack a disposable razor that I can throw out at my destination. However, all disposable razors are not created equal.
The Venus Disposable is for the On-The-Go-Girl because it’s perfectly suited for the active lifestyle. Just shave, then toss it out – no need to find replacement razors! Venus Disposables give a close shave for sensitive skin and has 3 blades surrounded by soft, protective cushions. The pivoting rounded head fits easily into hard-to-shave areas.
You can find the Venus Disposable at Walmart.com.
