I’ve been wanting to put together a camping checklist for awhile now but since we hadn’t been camping in many moons I just kept putting it off. Well last weekend we decided sort of spur of the moment that we were going to be wild and crazy and just do it (we tent camp so the weather has to be VERY cooperative for us to even consider it). I got out my clipboard and went to work organizing for our adventure. I was definitely in my element. Nothing like the feeling of being a cruise director in my own home as I walked around pretending to be on very official business. It so doesn’t take much to amuse me :)
All our camping gear is stored under our basement stairs so as I pulled it all out I jotted down on my handy dandy clipboard what we typically take with us out to the bush campground and typed it all up fancy schmancy for the next time we go….which will most likely be never considering camping, as it turns out, is so not how I remembered it to be (if you didn’t get a chance to read my camping story, you can find it here).
But how comforting it is to know that should a sudden case of amnesia overcome me and I conveniently forget that camping in a tent is a slow and tortuous event, well at least I’ll be prepared with a list. The fact that I have medications on there should not be lost on you. Or the fact that I have included my hair dryer and straightener. There are just some things that this girl can not part with even for the sake of nature :)
So if you happen to be a braver soul than I (and God bless you for it), please feel free to use my camping checklist by clicking on the link below. And for real kicks, try putting it on a clipboard and bellowing orders as you walk from room to room. It’s really so very exciting!
