Fall is upon us and that means 2 things, pumpkins, and camping. Fall is the perfect time for camping because the weather is cooler at night and in most states, the bugs are far less prolific than in the Spring.
According to recent reports, about 40 million Americans enjoy camping every year and more than 34 million go hiking. Chances are you’re one of them and you probably love the outdoors as much as I do.
But anyone who’s been out beyond their own backyard knows how quickly a good adventure can turn bad. Especially if you’re not prepared.
Let’s look at 5 items that are easy to forget but very important to a successful and relaxing camping trip.
Lots of people will tell you that you don’t need toilet paper. They are right, but life is way better when you have a roll for when you are out camping.
You might think that carrying a pillow too much or you might forget a pillow altogether. There are small camping pillows that fit right in your bag and way a couple of ounces.
Lots of people can forget about simple entertainment. It’s tough but it happens all the time. Board games and books are about the best options that you can bring.
After hiking its nice to get out of your boots and put some flip flops or crocks on so that you can get around the campsite without having to lace and unlace boots when you want to kick back and relax.
A big mistake is forgetting a quick answer for rain gear. You can find yourself in a downpour on your next hike or at the campsite. Sure, the tent can be cover but you also have to be careful because something might happen when you are away from camp.
Don’t forget these items when you are on your next trip. A little goes a long way.
