What is On Your Camping Equipment List?from: Maxx Adventure Travel
What have you got at the top of your camping equipment list? All the experts say that if you want a well organized camping trip then be sure to have a list of everything. If you want to be sure of a happy and stress free trip then the camping equipment list is one of the best ways of making sure that you are properly prepared.
The camping equipment list means that you have a good idea of practically everything you can possibly need and can't get elsewhere. Not much use trying to erect a tent if you have come away without the guy ropes and the tent pegs. A good camping equipment list will have those items on it and this means that you check them off the list as you pack them away. Then there is less chance of them being forgotten.
What you have on your list will depend on the kind of trip that you have planned. If what you intend to do is to go backpacking round the country then you don't want heavy tents or too many extras to lug around. Top of your camping equipment list should be a strong, but lightweight tent that will hold you and your gear and protect you from the elements and from marauding bugs and wildlife. Then you need a good quality sleeping bag and sleeping pad -- the pad will keep the cold from getting to your back and waking you up in the middle of the night.
Another very important item that should be on your camping equipment list if you are going hiking or backpacking is a good quality backpack. Try to find one with curved and padded straps because they sit better on your shoulders. Nothing spoils a camping trip more than an aching back and sore shoulders from a backpack that is too big or that does not sit well once put in place. The next item on your list should be a good strong pair of hiking boots. Make sure that you break them in before you go away. Sore feet do not a happy camper make.
You should always have some basic first aid equipment on your list. Trips and bites and burns often happen no matter how careful a camper you are. Having these things on your list will ensure that you are ready to deal with any emergency.
The camping equipment list should be drawn up to match your personal needs. Some of the things on this list could be vital to your survival once you are out in the wilds -- not to mention the fact that good organization leads to a well planned and stress free camping holiday. Don't lose your list. You need it to check items off as you pack for your trip and you will need it again on your return in order to tick items off when they are ready to be unpacked and stored away ready for next time.
