This article from Australia’s Fraser Coast Chronicle, starts off with some good points: when heading out on a camping or backpacking trip, you should always make a list!
The best way to make sure you’ve got everything you’ll need for a camping trip is to make a list and save it. We keep one for camping trips that includes any gear we’d need for biking, hiking, etc. We print out a copy of the list before each trip and check it TWICE before leaving. The last thing we’d want is to get 10 hours from home and realize we don’t have a tent.
How do you make sure you’ve got all your ducks in a row before setting out on a trip?
