My GSI 9" wok (wish I had the 11" now) and camp kitchen. The camp kitchen is a 5 gallon bucket wrapped around with a multi-pocket apron that handi-people use to carry tools in. I carry almost everything in it including my kitchen sink.

My car camping and backpacking gear is now almost identical. However, I used to use a combination grill/one burner Coleman camping stove that uses the same Powermax canisters as the Coleman Xstreme stove and if I were staying a few days I would set up the wonderful paper towel, garbage bag holder, lamp, cooking implement and spice holder I found years ago at Cabela...it weighs a ton but is really practical...another wonderful car camping piece of gear is my Sterns shower...it sits on the ground and consists of an inner bag surrounded by an airtight outer one. Using a foot pump you inflate the outer bag which puts enough pressure on the inner one to send water up a tube to the shower head...it is so easy and allows you to take a shower in places where there are no tall trees to hang a bag from...it is wonderful in those hot, dry, dusty campsites you can find out West...not to mention washing off all that bugspray before you go to bed...I usually camp in primitive places even when car camping...nothing like no water and vault toilets for keeping the crowds away...LOL...

Number 1 thing: I love the old Coleman coffee perkolater
Star charts, I can never justify bringing one backpacking but love my thick astronomical charts book on car camping trips.
Large, stand-up-in tents
Diet soda and beer, cheese and whole eggs and a cooler to keep them in
Camp fires, s'mores, heavy and sturdy folding chairs
Full sized flash lights and gallons of water plus lots of books and magazines
In primitive camping areas, I bring my own little pottie. I hate digging holes.
My friend has a full portable camp kitchen the size of a New York apartment with drawers and cabinets and a place to set the Coleman two burner stove. It's pretty sweet but I'd never get one myself.

6 inch thick queen size air mattress and rechargable pump. This bad boy fits perfectly inside the T3! We have a fold up kitchen counter/stove set up that has a water basin and towel rack. This justifies the better fresh food and cooler. Coleman 2 burner stove and real pots/pans. We also have a portable privy setup as we like public campgrounds but the ones without facilities make for a much quieter stay. Most basic campers stick with the sites with potties. Coleman lantern and our own firewood. The sites we use still have fire rings available.

Rising fast on my list are my camp ovens. Been cooking cobblers mostly as of late and never fail to have a serving line form after pulling it of the fire. Gonna try some chicken and rice here first chance I get.

I couldn't agree more! The two real treats of car camping vs. backpacking are a dutch oven and a cooler full of things to bake in it.

A camp chair would be next on the list, though I've been known to carry a small folding three-legged stool on short backpacking trips.
