What camping gear should you bring?
One of the important things that makes for a successful camping trip is by equipping yourself with high quality, durable camping gear. Apart from your tent, there are a few other things you should invest:
- Just because you are away from home, doesn’t mean you have to compromise on your comfort. Invest in a good sleeping bag, or get yourself an air mattress, and bring your favorite pillow along so it still feels like home.
- Invest in your tent it is worth it. If you are ready to make camping an integral part of your lifestyle, it is essential you get yourself a strong, sturdy tent with enough room to accommodate your needs. Remember to try setting up your tent in your backyard or a park, and check you have all the accessories.
- Don’t forget kitchen essentials or seating options. Most campers take meals along with them, or source their own food options at the place they are camping at. Remember to pack kitchen essentials, cooler box, and furniture to sit outside and take in the view.
- When travelling, packing smart goes a long way. Start with the basics – socks and underwear. Always remember to have spare underwear (two extra ones at least) and wear comfortable socks (with two pairs extra) so that you can walk comfortably for hours. If you get new shoes that need breaking in, remember to do so well before you plan to go camping, to avoid being uncomfortable and in pain. Sunglasses made for the elements are also a great addition to carry along, especially if you’re going to be walking in wide-open areas with no shade.
