"Turn around, I forgot to pack the X"


Planning the trip itself is a rather straightforward process. Decide where you are going, for how many days and nights, then decide what you want to do during that time. Plan it out in advance and it's easy as pie. If you want, you can even leave the decisions of the camping activities to be mulled over en-route. A nice little car journey activity as a matter of fact.


However, when it comes to camping gear, everything you bring with you is everything you have for the entire camping trip. Better pack smart.


Don't Get Lost in the Details - Before you get overwhelmed, just remember, camping is meant to be fun. If you wanted, you could whittle this list down to only the bare minimum. In reality, if you have the clothes on your back, a tent, a sleeping bag, some food, and drink, you are pretty much set.
