Apr 15, 2008
If you are a first time camper, and you want to make sure that you are not forgetting those special things that will make your life easier in your trip. Check these top eight things a camper must not forget, when going camping.

Tent
We know this one is already on your list but just in case, remember that whatever tent you choose, it should absolutely adapt to weather conditions. Check out the size and how easy it is to assemble. You do not want to spend hours figuring out where the poles go. If your trip includes a walking trip, and you are going to be carrying your tent around make sure it is not too heavy for you. Your tent should be comfortable and safe. It should have protected seams, waterproof floors, zipper protection and it should be very resistant.

Sleeping bags
Comfortable sleeping bags are very important in your camping trip. Do not forget the size and material is important when choosing one. Remember that if it is going to be hot or freezing outside, you have to check how warm the material can get, so that you can have a great night sleep.

Camping coolers
Camping coolers come in all sizes. Your camping cooler will keep your food and drinks cold and in good conditions. I have seen some that come with small wheels and they are easier to take along. There are others that have divisions so that you can separate drinks from food. These are best so that there is no risk of finding spilled drinks on your food. As advice, Coleman coolers have lots of options and great prices too you might want to check those out.

Camping lanterns or flashlights
There are all kinds of lanterns to choose from as well as prices, materials and sizes. You can choose battery operated lanterns, kerosene, Propane or gas ones.

Camping chairs and cots
Camping chairs and cots have two special duties when camping. These items make camping a lot more comfortable. Because you do not have to sit on the floor or rocks, they keep bugs like ants and spiders away from you.

Camping stoves and grills
If you are planning to spend more than a day on your trip, you better take a camping stove. Cooking while camping will help you to reduce stomach illnesses, it will give you; delicious homelike meals and it will also help your budget.

Camping air mattresses
These are not a must but, if you have back problems or do not like sleeping bags, than you ought to take one of these. Air mattresses are delicate with your back and let you have the best camping sleep.

Camping aid kits
Campers look for adventure and fun on their trips. Eventually, people will get some scratches, fall, and get mosquito bites or sick tummies. Do not forget to include your kit in your camping gear list, this one is a must.

Camping can not be called so, if there is no camping tent or sleeping bag. Those of us that have gone for that great camping adventure know that great camping will not do without lanterns, stoves or camping coolers. My advice is if you want to spend a great time, remember to take these top eight camping things, and enjoy your trip.
