If you’re one of the many blokes and Sheilas who enjoy summer camping in the bush alone or with friends and family, you probably know enough about what gear to take along. If you’re someone visiting Australia or someone going camping or trekking for the first time, you might be wondering how to equip yourself!
Basic Gear – What you’re going to Need
That apple pie your grandma baked last Friday, your wedding album, , and your favourite Master Chef Australia winner’s cookbook . . . yeah, maybe leave all of those out on that long awaited camping trip. It’s Bear Grylls mode on, definitely, but that isn’t to say you should be ready to eat frogs and not make any due preparations in advance.
While it is true that camping is just you, the bare essentials needed for survival, and Nature; it is important to remember what happens to people who slack in their backpack packing rituals. These are only a few of the things which could happen:
· A ruined camping trip
And the only thing these have in common is that none are ever in favour of a camper. This blog will therefore guide you through the basics of camping which you must carry in order for your trip to not be ruined.
“I’m going on an adventure!”
These iconic words were said by Bilbo Baggins of Bag End, who without a bag on his shoulders ran off to an adventure in the mountains. Everyone whose body is host to a restless spirit has shouted these words in excitement at least once, and good riddance too: camping is one of the most exhilarating experiences one can have in their lifetime. But unlike what they show in the movies, you don’t venture out into the woods wearing nothing but your Sunday best, and no matter how hard Disney tries there are no friendly Baloos or beasts waiting to take you under their protective wings.
Out in the wilderness, it’s every man for himself. And it is for this reason that your rucksack has to be chosen and packed just right.
And since you are no Bilbo Baggins, this blog is all about helping you choose the right bag for the right adventure.
