Camping Roadtrip Checklist

• car wash, tire inflation, brake check, oil check, battery

• wallet, money, ID/passport, phone, phone cord

• prescription meds, essential OTC, daily vitamins, bandages, rubbing alcohol, insect repellent, sunscreen, antifungal, neosporin, toothpaste, brush, deodorant, soap, TP, scissors, nailclippers

• underwear, socks, pants, shirts, boots, jacket, gloves, sandals, reef shoes, swim trunks

• tent, air mattress (I hate air mattresses), tested air pump, sleeping bag, blankets

• camera, card, batteries, chargers, car USB charger

• flashlight, pepper spray, buck knife, lighter/matches, duraflame log

• maps

• Two pots, 1 pan, 2 bowls, 2 spoons, biodegradable camp soap … Prior to camping out: wash your boots, vacuum the tent, get all mud off the vehicle (to prevent spreading SODS – sudden oak death syndrome, which actually kills all sorts of plants).

• suitcase, backpack, ice chest

• beer, soda, gatorade, ice.

• kraft macncheese, pre-cooked chicken strips, canned beans, fresh onion, rice, syrup, complete pancake mix, smart balance, candy bars, protein bars, hummus, baby carrots, pre-sliced cheese, lunchmeat, bread. (Do NOT pack crackers, cookies or anything else that leaves crumbs – they attract species foreign to the area, and they go on to eat the eggs of local birds and cause other damage)
