Squirrels will eat through a tupperwear lid. Learned that yesterday. A plug-in inflator is so much better than the battery kind for air mattresses.

550 cord and duct tape can fix just about anything.

Where do you plug it in? Is this in the desolate woods like A Quiet Place where everyone had electricity?

I have to take my family to campgrounds that have water and electricity.

The Hampton Inn is a nice place to camp
I'd avoid places like Econolodge or Super 8 unless you are looking for a very rustic experience

Water always wins. So:

Don't wear anything cotton. Cotton takes forever to dry and you can end up getting hypothermia if the temperature drops. Quick drying synthetics or wool are much much better.

It seems counter-intuitive, but "waterproof" gear is often bad. Once water gets inside your "waterproof" shoes or pack or jacket, and it will, it will be trapped inside and take forever to dry out. Breathable materials are better. Just line your pack with a big old garbage bag if you're going to hike in rain.

Hang your food over a tree branch so the bears and wangdoodles don't get it.

You wont be saying that when all of nature decides to try and eat you and it rains so much you need a boat to float out of the campsite.
