If you are going on a camping trip, or have ever been on one, you will know that a lot of equipment, accessories and clothing are needed to keep you clean, safe and comfortable. The only way to keep track of everything that you need, everything that you have and everything that still needs to be purchased, is to have a camping gear checklist,I go camping quite often, as its such a great way to relax, have fun and get in touch with the outdoors. Every time i go, i always make a camping gear checklist, and i have found that the same list will usually do me for most of my trips. In some of your trips however, you will need extra things, e.g. if its in the extreme cold, or if its in the Australian outback. These are two very contrasting scenarios, and separate lists will need to be drawn up for both.
General items that will be on your list no matter what are; firstly, and no surprise, a tent, a pair of walking boots, a coat, a pair of tough wearing trousers, a walking stick, a Stanley knife and some food supplies. This is a basic start, and you can then add other items that will be needed on separate occasions. If you ever have any problems creating your list, just leave me a comment, and i will help as best as possible.
