Here is a checklist to make sure you have all the essentials while packing for your trip. Keep in mind this list can be altered to how/ where your camping. If backpacking, you don’t need the heavy stuff. This is an overview of what is important to me:
- sleeping bag
- sleeping pad
- food (dehydrated for backpacking)
- water/ water pump
- clothes (depending on the weather):
- cold weather- rain jacket (I use my snowboarding jacket), beanie, scarf, gloves, socks, long sleeve shirt, waterproof pants if in snow/rain
- hot weather- socks, light colored tee, hat
- waterproof shoes if in snow/rain
- comfortable shoes/ hiking shoes depending on your activity
- first-aid kit
- toiletries (toothbrush/ toothpaste, hair ties, deodorant)
- toilet paper
- wine/ wine opener
- parking pass (yearly adventure pass for national forests)

Hi Mandie, thanks for stopping by at my blog. When I walk outside of my apartment (whether I am going camping or not) I never leave behind the following: 1. My keys, so I can get back in, 2) something such as lip balm to relieve cracked lips if someone makes me laugh, 3) a few tissues, to blow my nose, so I won’t have to use my sleeves (it’s not socially acceptable, and toilet paper is too rough), 4) little baggies to pick up after my dog, and my cell phone in case I forget my keys.
I do wear a medic alert bracelet and I found out the hard way that medic alert bracelets are no guarantee. The EMT’s that transported me last August were too lazy to access the info I had taken the trouble to put up online. Partially these dudes are to blame. The hospital mixed me up with someone else who had a name similar to mine, and while inpatient I was given her medications! I plan to blog about this in the future…medic alert bracelets are not a guarantee…Best bet is being in the right place at the right time. Just wade into the river, open your mouth, and if it is your lucky day, a fish might swim right in. Dinner!
