If you are thinking about going on a camping trip this weekend, it is critical to research your destination.
Find the answers to questions like:
What is the weather going to be?
Will it rain?
Are there wild animals in the area to watch out for?
Are fires allowed?
Do you need a reservation for the campsite?
Learning about what the environment and regulations in the area beforehand will help you be properly prepared. You want to make safety a priority every time you decide to spend the night outdoors.
Once you do your research on the area you can begin to create a list of items you want to bring with you.
Here are some essentials that you will want to bring to make your weekend in nature comfortable.
1. Instant Tent
The instant tent is a must have camping essential. It will save you so much time during set up and take down. Plus they are super spacious, especially if there are just two people camping.
2. Sleeping Pad
As we get older sleeping on the ground becomes more and more painful. I highly recommend getting the cot pad from Cabela's to use as a sleeping pad. The foam is thick so your hip bones won't be against the hard ground all night (if you are a side sleeper). It also rolls up quite easily.
3. Sleeping Bag and Blankets
I like to bring old blankets from home to lay on the sleeping pad and over my sleeping bag on cold nights. It makes the sleeping arrangement a lot more comfortable.
I save old bed pillows and use them as camping pillows.
9. Lighter / Matches
10. Kitchen Tools
Skewers (to roast marshmallows)
16. Hatchet or Small Saw
17. First-Aid Kit
