    Your post reminded me of the days when we used to go camping. These are good tips for planning a trip to the woods. You addressed all the aspects of traveling in the wilderness.

    Its been ages since I last went on camping! It would take a few more years (till my gal grows up a bit more) for me to restart camping! Oh I miss it!!!
    Thanks for all the tips. You’ve extensively covered all aspects of camping. Yes, navigation tools so necessary in the woods and more important is having charge in it!!!

    This is a great checklist for camping in the woods. There seems to be a lot to consider, but you have to be prepared for all types of conditions. I am not the best camper and have not done much of it but it is one my list of things still to do to get me out of my comfort zone. This article helps. Thanks.

      Yes, that’s the point, Jane. You might not need ALL of these things most of the time but I just wanted to prepare a checklist that can easily be adjusted to one’s needs and requirements.

    Our family goes camping often, and I agree with the items you’ve listed. This is a great guide for campers, especially new campers or people who haven’t been camping for a long period of time. Your first aid suggestions was especially thorough. In my opinion, there is nothing more relaxing than spending time in the woods!

    As an outdoor enthusiast myself who loves hiking and camping in the woods, I could totally relate to this post.
    One should keep in mind regarding packing adequate layers, coz the temperature keeps fluctuating and yeah a first aid kit and some easy to cook energy giving foods should always be packed.

    The last time I was camping , was eons ago. How nice it would be to do so again. Apart from the very valuable informational checklist, I am tempted now to start camping.. in my garden to practise before I do the real thing. I love that you included backup plans in case of bad weather!

    Good to know Daniel. I was destroyed by bugs hiking in Connecticut yesterday bro. Insane amounts, like the jungles of Costa Rica. We’ve had so much rain in the Northeast US over months that bugs are in abundance. I need good repellent and a willingness to have bugs in my eyes I guess hahaha.

      I can totally relate, Ryan. Bugs can be a real pain in the ass. A good repellent is always a must when camping in the woods 🙂

    I used to go camping with my boys all the time when they were younger. Your list of what to bring is thorough. You’re right that first aid kits tend to be too small and you need to think about what you may need until you can get help. As I’ve aged and gotten aches and pains, I no longer enjoy it as much, but the memories we created will stay with us forever.

    I find it so interesting that people camp is such different ways. Reading your article, I found that I’m very much a lowkey camper compared to others. I hardly worry about all the extra and focus on the necessities: good hiking shoes, layers, water, tent, and easy food to cook such as “poor-boy” dinners and brats. I hadn’t even thought about bringing a first aid kit or cooking other foods such as pasta. I just might expand my horizons on my next camping trip!

      Indeed, Martha. Everyone is different, and hence, there are different ways for camping and packing for camping 🙂 The goal of this list was to give the ultimate checklist of all items one might need.

    I LOVE camping in the woods! Its one if my favourite childhood memories – camping with friends and family, just for one night, so much fun! We have never wrote lists, we managed somehow! But today I like to prepare a bit when I go to longer trips!
