85 Long Weekend Necessities

From Drink Disguising Golf Clubs to Sustainable Lakeside Cottages

— May 11, 2013 — Eco
Long weekend necessities are key to being prepared for summer fun. The long weekends with our friends and family are what we live for, whether it be barbecuing in the backyard, camping, the beach or going to the cottage. Being well-equipped can make or break your experience.

From smooth sporty speedboats to liquor-filled fruits, long weekend necessities are something that you want to think about before you depart on your adventures. Having a great time on the long weekends after working hard at work or at school is certainly important to maintaining balance and happiness in life.

Making sure that you have all of the long weekend necessities will be greatly appreciated by whomever you are choosing to spend this much deserved time off with. Make a list and remember all of the important elements for a successful long weekend.
