Almost everyone has had the experience of going on a trip and forgetting an essential item. When camping, you can’t always run to the nearest store to pick up supplies, so we created a check list to help you get prepared and enjoy every moment in the outdoors. Use the list below as a guideline but don’t be afraid to modify for your specific trip. We’ve broken up the list to Basics, Nice to Haves, and Entertainment items.
The Nice to Haves
Note on Clothing:
The first rule of outdoor living is avoid cotton clothing wherever possible. Cotton absorbs and holds moisture, and its insulative value is severely reduced when wet. Synthetic materials like Polypropylene are recommended for their moisture wicking properties, and if you want a natural fiber, Wool is naturally deodorant and does a great job insulating even when wet.
Note on Food:
Trips into the backcountry can range from easy car-access camping to long backpacks. When you have the convenience of a vehicle nearby, you can afford to go gourmet. But, for longer trips away from civilization, always carry food for at least one more day than you’re planning to be out. Hope for the best; Plan for the worst!
