RE: What basics are needed for 1-2 days camping?
Someone mentioned groundsheets/tarps under tents. One key point, ensure that they DO NOT stick out beyond the perimeter of the tent body else rain will collect on the stuck out tarp edges, get in through the tent wall and cause a flood inside. Years ago a guy I knew caught hypothermia this way after a heavy rain one night, luckily we were car camping and could just toss him in a vehicle and crank up the heat.

Also for showers, most car camping sites should have facilities, though you'll have to bring your own towels, soap, flip flops etc. If you're going to freebie camp or something though, you can actually give yourself a proper shower with only one bucket of water and a cup/mug. Pour 2-3 cups on yourself to wet up, lather, and use the remainder (probably won't even need it all) to rinse. For a hot shower, just boil up a pot or two of water (goes fast on gas stoves) and dilute the temperature with cold water.
