LPT: Save the packing list from your camping trip. When you get home, add the things you forgot, remove what you brought but didn’t need and then save the list for your next trip.

    What camping item is most useful that people don’t usually think about bringing?

    I always forget how fortunate we are in New Zealand where we can go camping and not have to worry about poisonous insects, animals or fucking bears. The worst you’ll come across is a pissed off goat.

    Add the things you needed yes. But only remove things that were no help and had no purpose. Just because you didn’t need something last time doesn’t mean you won’t need it the next.

    I tried to do this (saw it on reddit a while back) and I just can’t feel comfortable without going through my itinerary about a hundred times each and everytime I go on a trip. That being said, a list of the necessaries is necessary.

    I have a shared Wunderlist camping list with my wife. Same for major holidays and recurring trips. You can check and uncheck items at will, and add new items over time while seeing which items you’ve removed.

    A friend of mine recently had to call a search and rescue team to extract him from an icy cavern in the PNW. He had everything he needed for a day trip in the snow, however he did not have what he needed for a day trip in icy conditions. Halfway through his hike rain started packing the snow to ice which in turn slowed him down. With fleeting daylight, he suddenly found himself in a very dangerous situation. Icy ledges in the dark and freezing rain. Luckily he had cellphone service. Conditions can change dramatically in a short period of time. Prepare for the worst, hope for the best. Also, one is none, and two is one (bring a backup headlamp, water filter, etc).

    I usually make a list for packing to go on vacation, then take the list with me and cross stuff off the list as I am packing up to go home from vacation.

    This LPT isn’t just restricted to camping trips. You could use it for any trip. Including to the supermarket… THAT’S WHAT LISTS ARE FOR!

    Or just keep everything in the trunk for the next trip!

    If you ever pick up backpacking, this is a great way to reduce you pack weight every trip.

    I do this with Google Keep. I check off the boxes when packing for the trip, delete the items that I didn’t end up taking, then I uncheck all when I’m ready to pack my things to return. Works beautifully.

    I do this in Google docs so that it’s a live document and I can update it immediately.

    The hardest part about this for my family is we do many different types of camping. One list doesn’t work for them all. Bonus is that We camp so often that I don’t really need lists anymore. My three kids usually remind me to bring what I forgot last time. They all had about 100 nights in a tent before they were 5.

    LPT: Have a packing list.

    I have an addition:

    Make sure the packing list isn’t exposed to sunlight under the transparent cover of your bicycle bag for your whole 10 day camping ride through sweden.
    The ink will be GONE and you’ll have to start over next time 😉 been there, done that.

    I travel a bunch and do the same. Have checklists for short, medium, long trips, and then national and international. Lots of list overlap so might seem redundant to some but even one or two items can make or break one trip vs another(eg photocopy of passport for international vs passport not needed at all for national). Really takes a lot of the stress out of it.

    If you’re backpacking, I would suggest coming out with extra food. You never know if you might spend an unexpected extra day in the woods. Shit happens.
