The Ultimate Camping Checklist
Copyright 2006 Karin Manning How much effort you put into adequately planning your camping trip will determine how successful (and enjoyable) your trip will be. Though some of these tasks may seem tedious and tiresome, the more often you put these tasks into practice the more fun you will have doing them. Here are just a few suggestions for you to try:
1. Gather all your camping equipment, etc, in a corner of a room and keep adding to it as you think of it. Start weeks in advance if you’re new to camping.
2. For easy storage in your vehicle, use basket shelves.
3. Use sports bags for clothes instead of cumbersome suitcases.
4. Place items at easy reach that you will have to use first when you arrive at your camping ground.
5. Place heavier items in the bottom of your car boot and lighter items on the top.
6. Make sure all heavy items are secure to avoid any nasty incidents when traveling.
7. It is far more important to have equipment that is durable and reliable than the flashiest and shiniest new-fangled way out gear.
8. Pack binoculars.
9. After every dinner under the stars discuss what the next day’s menu will be.
