What's on your "camping" list?
- January 10, 2017 at 5:42 am #65211
A while back, a friend of mine that was new to prepping, asked me if I could give him a list of items for him to accumulate for an emergency (make that “prepping”) situation. I put together a list of recommended items (see below). This is not a complete list. I know that other things can be added to the “camping” list. Feel free to add any items you deem necessary.
Anti acid (Tums)

Fantastic list and great topic. Think I might do a video on this subject next week when I get my voice back (sick).January 10, 2017 at 9:38 am #65226
Eric – Let me know if there is anything I can do to help.January 12, 2017 at 4:13 pm #65373
I’m new so pardon me if I am out of line. Are we talking about camping or a “bug-out” kit?January 12, 2017 at 5:05 pm #65375
You are not out of line.
Either one…there are pretty much the same.
“Camping List” is kind of tongue in cheek.January 14, 2017 at 2:26 pm #65482
Okay, well I kind of figured it was but wanted to make sure. I made up survival/emergency fanny packs for my friends and I to carry on our ATV’s in case of an accident in the middle of nowhere but I’ll grab it in a bug out situation as well. I’ll get a list together of what is in it. I would love feedback on it of anything anyone else thinks it could use. There is very limited space being a fanny pack so it will only hold so much.January 14, 2017 at 6:28 pm #65490
Get that list, get that list!!!! 😛January 14, 2017 at 7:03 pm #65491
@ Freethinker – I would like for you to list what you put in your ATV packs. It would be a great help for everyone. I’m sure, we all know there is no “one” list for every prepping situation. I carry my personalized kit with me everyday. It’s designed to accommodate my daily activities and sustain me for 3 days should something go wrong. Within my kit, I include a first aid kit. Even the contents of my first aid kit are personalized for my daily activities and what ever first responder needs I may have.January 15, 2017 at 11:13 pm #65511
Survival blanket & Survival Sleeping bag
folding knife and sharpener
water purification tablets
magnesium fire starter
small first aid kit
3×4 gauze pads
Now I’m an EMT so I feel pretty comfortable with the medical stuff and having to stitch myself or someone else up although it is not what EMT’s do in the field.
I would love input on what others think would be valuable to have that is small and doesn’t take up much room. I’m going to add some tie wraps and super glue too.January 16, 2017 at 6:41 am #65515
@freethinker – That is a great little pack. It is well thought out and will cover a lot of “on trail” urgent situations. It would also be a great pack for day hikers or even kept in a car. As for me, I would add bug repellent. Biting insects can get pretty nasty here in south Florida.January 16, 2017 at 2:39 pm #65560
Thanks, it was originally meant as a “on trail” pack that could double for a camping situation. The bug repellent is an excellent idea and even a bug net for my head would take up no room and or add any weight. I’m also going to add a small roll of electrical tape and small pack of baby wipes as well as Ibuprofen. There is already bug repellent, sun screen, toilet paper, a coat, gloves, hat, water bottles and small jumper cable pack on my ATV in the side packs.
I’m thinking that your geographical location could greatly effect what you might want in your pack for extras. I live out west so I hadn’t thought of the bug issue as much as you do in southern Florida. Everyone should think about their local conditions and how they effect what you might need.
