Author: Stan Peter Date Posted:20 March 2019
The weather is crisp and one of the busiest camping holidays is near. With Easter around the corner, the pressure of the annual camping getaway must surely be getting to you. We can only imagine how stressful it must be; the major undertaking of getting ready for Easter and rustling up camping gear all at once.
That’s why in our blog this week we’ve put together a list of the most important camping appliances just for you. Feel free to use this as your very own checklist!
Let’s start with the obvious and most important component, which is shelter via tents. If you already own one, it’s time to take it out of storage and make sure that it is in working condition. However, if you’re looking to purchase a brand new tent, give utmost importance to its functionality. As tents are set up outdoors, make sure they are weatherproof and can withstand breezy weather. Keep in mind that the tent of your choice should allow ventilation and also be portable.
We get that campfires are a huge part of camping. However, a portable stove allows you to cook up dishes much faster and much more efficiently than a campfire. Take into consideration the unpredictable nature of the weather and also keep in mind that nights are usually chilly. As such, you’d be thankful for a portable stove and the warm dishes of food it can serve you in an instant. Given that Easter trips are most likely to be done with the whole family, having a stove will come in handy when having to serve a whole bunch!
A flashlight is an extremely important accessory to take with you on your camping trip given its innumerable different uses. While it’s most likely to be the only source of light after sundown, it could also aid in emergency situations. If you want to use the toilet or have trouble finding the walking path in the dark, this portable source of light will be your best companion. A flashlight that allows you to adjust its lighting radius is even better than the ordinary torch.
A must-have camping gear accessory, first-aid kits ensure that you are safe and comfortable during your camping vacation. When camping, you are bound to be bitten by mosquitoes and are likely to come down with a migraine or injure yourself. Therefore, gearing yourself with a safety kit, which consists of bug repellent, plasters and a few pain killers is extremely important.
Keep your hygiene in check - don’t forget the toiletries! Towels to dry you, soap, toothpaste, deodorant, toilet paper, seat covers, sunscreen to protect your skin from harmful UV rays should all be packed and kept ready for the trip.
While there are many utensils to choose from, keep in mind not to overpack. A couple of cups, spoons, plates, a knife, pots and pans are the most vital types of gear you would need. Make sure they are eco-friendly and are easy to take with you. Lightweight, multipurpose tools are ideal for camping trips.
