As it gets warmer, campers start their season to watch nature wake up and get loads of fresh air for their lungs. To make your camping as convenient as it can be, you need lots of essential gear to support your body, mind, and stuff you take along. Not every trip is 100% sunny, warm, and with easy-to-walk roads.
A Warm Portable Sleeping Bag
The nights are still cold, and it’s easy to catch cold during season change than ever. Besides, after an active day you must be tired and your muscles beg for some stretch, which is impossible in many sleeping bags. So make sure yours is warm, waterproof, and spacious enough to pocket your body perfectly while having desired sleep.
String Lights on Batteries
In spring, sunsets are still pretty early, and you might want to spend some more time awake, but the light from the campfire might be too dull for some. This is where string lights come in handy, working on batteries and lighting your evening (literally).
A Versatile Spacious Tent
The weather in spring is unpredictable, so rain may catch you anytime. This is when you may want to hide in a waterproof tent with enough place for you, your family or friends, all the food, and maybe even a pet. Consider transparent ‘windows’ as well, so you can still admire the view of the nature around you.
A High-Quality Insect Repellent
Some insects wake up pretty early, and surely nobody wants to cope with itching and inflammation from their stings. Do a research on the best working solutions out there and choose whatever is the most convenient for you to use. Just to mention, though, cream-based repellents don’t harm nature as much as the aerosol ones.
A Water Heater on Gas or Batteries
If rain catches you, a warm drink will be a great idea, but trying to make a campfire won’t. For such situations, get a water heater that works on gas or batteries to make sure you can have a cup of tea or coffee anytime. You can also cook with it or heat water to warm the tent up if it gets way too cold.
These are the essentials you might need, but there are also options like a portable kitchen, camping levels, a hammock, an inflatable kayak, and so much more. And of course, wear comfortable clothes and shoes, and make sure everything you need fits into the bags that are also convenient to wear.
