Ensuring You Have all the Camping Supplies that You Need

Mar 2, 2008
Before leaving for camp, it is best to check all the supplies that are needed when going on a camping trip. Try to make a checklist of the stuff that you will need so that your trip will be a success. Try to think of all the possible things that you will need in the trip and then cross them out one-by-one as soon as you have double checked if it is in your camping things.

Obviously you will not be sleeping in your house so a camping tent would serve as your home during the trip. Make sure that the tent is large enough to fit you and whoever is going with you. Sleeping materials such as blankets, sleeping bags and pillows are also needed so that you will be sleeping comfortably. A hammock can also be used as a sleeping place just in case you don't have any sleeping bag. These are among the most important stuff needed.

Radios, walkie-talkies and a compass are also needed in case you get separated from your companions. Just make sure that these means are working perfectly before setting out. Lanterns, lighters and light sticks should also be brought to ensure light of your camping site.

Other supplies such as axes, knives and saws can also be brought in case you need to cut down or clear something on the way. Camping furniture like chairs and tables can also be brought to camp as long as the location is spacious and if you can carry all these things with you.

Clothes such as t-shirts, pants or jeans and even a jacket is highly recommended to bring if you plan to camp for several days. You are never too sure of the weather and climate of the camping site you are settling in. So it is best to pack clothes for all seasons. Better be safe than sorry right?

In addition, because you are camping out, food is also a necessity. Coolers, to ensure freshness of the food; aluminum foils, to make heating and cooking food easier and even packing the food nice and tight to make sure that the food will not spill during the trip.

Another most important camping supply that you will need is a heavy duty backpack. Of course, without a backpack, you cannot possibly carry and bring all the aforementioned stuff by your bare hands. Just make sure that the backpack you are to use can carry a lot of weight and would fit snuggly onto your shoulders. It also helps to keep the things inside the backpack balanced so that you will not have any muscle strain.

Double checking on your stuff enables you and your companions to have the things that you need. This ensures that you will not forget anything and that you are prepared for anything that may happen during your camping trip. Being prepared and having all things in place will help you have a worry-free trip and that you will not panic in case you forgot something.
