It's been a record-breaking summer of heat on the East Coast, but the Jersey Shore cast doesn't seem to have a clue.

Those crazy kids, who've been filming the sixth season of the hit MTV reality show in Seaside Heights, N.J., packed up their cars for a fun camping trip (sometimes you need to get away from a crowded shore house ... and the oh-so-sanitary Smush room).

Save for the ridiculously warm boots and extremely micro shorts and skirts, the crew seems to know what they're doing. Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino, Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi, Jenni "JWoww" Farley, Sammi "Sweetheart" Giancola and Ronnie Ortiz-Magro all helped drag the giant suitcases out of the house and stuff the car full of goodies like Kettle chips ... and what we can only assume is tons of beer in those coolers.

We're ignoring making fun of the boots (again) to pose just two questions: how long are they going for with that many suitcases, and where were Vinny Guadagnino and DJ Pauly D? Help out, boys!
