What is it about camping that makes it so wonderful? Is it the fresh air, cooking over the fire, the freedom? I actually can’t pin point exactly why I love camping so much, I just know that during the warmer months it is always in the back of my mind.
Before you head out the door on your next camping adventure make sure you pack the right supplies to create less stress out in the middle of no where! Here is a camping checklist guide to help you out. Click here to download the camping checklist guide.
Plastic bins are a great place to store your camping supplies and are somewhat waterproof. The best part is most of your camping supplies (if you don’t use them elsewhere) can stay in the bins until they are needed again.
If you decide to camp at a campsite find out what they provide, such as picnic tables, bathrooms, showers, and running water. Also find out about any possible bear activity, rules and places to go in case it rains, unfortunately I have some experience with this. Last year we (Tony and I) went camping in late summer, and the second day into our four day trip it began to rain. There was literally a stream running through our tent and there was no stop in sight, so we pack up and drove a couple hours to find a hotel. Even though we missed out on the campfire and hiking, we were still glad to be on vacation!
If you are camping with a group or family, split the supply list in half and try not to overlap your supplies, it will create less “stuff” for each group to bring and take back. Just think after your are done packing and once you get to your campsite you will be able to relax in the fresh air with the stars above!
