ESSENTIAL CAMPING ITEMS
It is easy to find out that you forgot some vital thing to your camping trip while you are already at the camping site. This is why you must pack the essential items in a bag. The absence of those things will cause your trip to get sour. They are as outlined below;
First aid kit
Scratches, burns, bumps, or cuts may happen on an active camping trip. Therefore, a first aid kit is one of the essential items in your camping trip, one you should never forget. You should have it on your field excursions as well.
A rope has many uses at a camping site, especially if you can tie a variation of knots. You can use it to make a clothesline, create a shelter, hang coolers from a branch at night, or tow people out of tight situations.
Pack of matches
Fire is an important aspect of the success of your trip. Without it, you will face limitations in your food options and experience colder nights. This is why, unless you are an experienced boy scout, you should buy matches in bulk and place them in your essentials’ bag.
Tarps are very essential in a campsite for they can be used as extra shelter or protect the bottom of your tent. They take a small amount of your camping bag because they are easy to fold.
Portable spice rack
A badly seasoned meal is unacceptable at home, and so you should not suffer the same thing at your campsite. Small, hard to break, and easy to pack, a plastic portable spice rack should make it into your camping bag.
Maps and compass
Phones may not get signals at remote camping sites, making their GPS unreliable. This makes navigation essentials, a map, and a compass, a vital part of your luggage.
Lantern, headlamp, and flashlight
To avoid accidents in the dark, you should have a flashlight and a lantern with you and be in easy reach.
The Swiss Army Knife takes almost no space in your bag, and is an essential part, together with corkscrew, small scissors, saw, and the likes.
