What to bring camping is a topic that will include alot of common sense items, as well as, some things that can easily be overlooked, yet are potentially crucial to your camping adventure.

A simple list by a young friend, provides an overview of essential things to include in your pre-camping checklist:

When we go camping we should bring our own clothes. Certainly, also bring our own towel to wipe when we need. It may be helpful to also bring our own comb to comb our hair. A lightweight flashlight will always be useful to us so that we can see things when the lights go out. We can carry our own pillows so that we can rest our heads comfortably in the night. Some sheets to cover ourselves so that we can protect ourselves from the chills in the night. Taking our own soaps can prevent skin problems while away on your hike. We should also take a mosquito coil and a matchbox with us so that we can sleep peacefully in the night if there is lot of mosquitoes, although some prefer a bug net. Think about taking general medicines to help from sickness during camping. Take your mug with and you will be surprised the many uses, for instance bathing and other activities which require the carrying or use of liquids or water. Take your own handkerchiefs so that you won’t get unneeded germs from other people, in the event one falls ill. Bandages are lightweight, and helpful in case of minor cuts or wounds during camping and hiking. Some also suggest to take ear plugs with us so that we can sleep peacefully in the night if there is lot of noise. We should also have our own cell phone with us so that we can keep in touch with friends if we are lost. We can even keep in touch with family members during that time.

Of course, these are only a few of the items which can provide you with a fully prepared pack for your trip, but at least you get thinking about what personal items you feel are essential for you. And if this is a get-away trip, to relieve you of stresses from the daily work environment, you may consider keeping that cell phone off for the entire trip, and only use it for emergencies. Either way you can cut camping headaches with advice from experienced experts. Start by checking out these “12 Steps”
