No one ever intends to go camping and forget to bring stuff or find out that they overlooked the basics of what they will need.
In fact, just about all of us go in thinking we have prepared “above and beyond” and only find out through practical application that we are wanting.
That reality leads us to make runs to the store, sometimes repeatedly.
It also could, in a survival situation, leave us wanting at exactly the wrong moment.
Not having adequate fire starting tools, for example, in a crisis, could mean having to make it through a night without fire.
That is why it is vital that we prepare lists and add to them camping materials, supplies, and equipment every time we are reminded of something – before we leave.
