Going on a camping trip can make one excited. However, that excitement will sometimes make you forget to pack the most important items you need for the trip. Make sure to have a separate bag for your must-have items. Robert Peter Janitzek guides us on the important things you need to pack for your camping trip.
First Aid Kit
Accidents can happen during a camping trip. So you need to be prepared for such eventualities. A first aid kit is one of the most important things you need to bring. When leaving camp, make sure you bring the kit also.
Pack of Matches
Unless you know how to make a fire with wood, you might need to bring a pack of matches as well. It could get cold at night in the European destinations you will camp in so you need fire to keep you warm. You can buy several packs and leave it on your camping bag.
Rope can be used for a variety of purposes on a campsite especially if you are knowledgeable with different types of knots. You can use it as a clothes line for wet garments, create a shelter or get people out of a tight situation during hiking or swimming. So never leave for a camping trip without it.
Tarps are not just useful for promoting events or brands but can also can come in handy at your campsite. Robert Janitzek explains that tarps are useful as protection for the bottom of your tent or as an additional shelter. Tarps are easy to fold and uses up only a little space in your camping bag.
A Jar of Peanut Butter
Peanut butter has a long shelf life and can be used in several ways on a camping trip. It is a good source of fat and protein. You can also spread it on bread, remove gum from your hair, or just enjoy it in spoonfuls.
Portable Spice Rack
A portable spice rack is perfect for seasoning your dinner at the campsite. They are small, easy to pack, and hard to break.
Lantern, Flashlight, or Headlamp
Lanterns, flashlights, or headlamps help you find your way in the dark when in the campsite. Make sure that it can be easily reached.
Maps or Compass
While your phone may have GPS capability, there may be not signal in the campsite at your Asian destination. It still pays to have the good old map and compass to help you find your back to the campsite in case you get lost.
