Whether it’s your first time going camping or have done it before, carrying the right equipment will make your vacation more comfortable. Here is a checklist of what you’ll need:
- First aid kit
Accidents happen all the time, which is why carrying a first aid kit is vital. So, even if you don’t suspect it may occur, you’re better off carrying it for your peace of mind.
A rope has many uses in a campsite. You can use it to hang your clothes or burners, or pull people out when in danger.
- A flashlight
While having a generator to provide you with light is essential, some campsites might not allow you to have one. A lantern or flashlight, on the other hand, is an excellent source of light that you can carry effortlessly in your bag. Don’t forget to carry it, particularly if you suspect that you’ll arrive when it’s dark.
- Pocket knife
Some people prefer calling it a Swiss Army Knife while others prefer a pocket knife. Whatever the case, a pocket knife is a camping essential you must have because you can use it to cut or open objects.
- Waterproof tarp
So, the weather forecast predicts that there will be no rains, but you probably know how inaccurate this information can be. Even if you’re sure it won’t rain, get a waterproof tarp to protect your tent from the rains. The best part is tarps are foldable and portable, making it easier for you to pack in your bag.
When planning a camping trip, ensure you carry all these essentials. Other things you may need are toiletries, food supply, a pack of matches, maps and compass, alternate weather wear and many others. When you have all these, rest assured that you’ll have the best experience.
