Every year at this time of year I look forward to an annual camping trip. It’s a wonderful feeling to take a break from your hectic busy life and enjoy the serenity of the forest and nature. You want to pack lightly yet you don’t want to be stuck camping without any of the essentials. Here are some quick ideas for a great camping experience:
You need to be organized if you want to have a good trip. Make a camping check list before your trip so you don’t make a mistake of bringing food for the barbecue without the grill or bringing a tent without the stakes.
Figure out if this will be a backpacking trip or one that you’ll take a car or RV. Many more items can go into an automobile that in a backpack.
Think ahead. You need to know where you are going so you can plan accordingly. Bring insect repellent for areas with ticks or other insects. Bring rain gear for rainy or wet areas and warm clothing if the weather will get cooler.
Here is a basic camping supplies list:
Credit Cards/Cash/Permits for fishing-camping if needed
Sleeping Gear-Tents, sleeping bags, blankets
A great idea would be to bring a vinyl tablecloth along for your camping trip. It’s lightweight and easy to carry around yet strong enough to fold up and reuse as you move along. Its wipe clean cloth will give you a sanitary place to prepare and eat your food. I love the tavern checks design and they come in many colors options. There are also other fabulous vinyl tablecloth prints for you to choose from.
Planning ahead and bringing along the necessities that is needed will make for a great trip. Be careful of any bears, snakes and know what to do if you encounter one. Have fun, stay safe and when you return, let us know how enjoyable your experience was.
