On the first of July I will be leaving for my second stint of primitive camping. Last year we brought far to much with us and ended up suffering due to having to lug around everything. So for you nature guru’s can you take a look over my list of items that I will be bringing along. Let me know if there are anythings that I shouldn’t leave or that I may have forgotten.
Tarp- We plan to use a tarp as a tent. http://www.shelter-systems.com/gripclips/images/tarptent.jpg
1" or thicker dowel for erecting the tent end.
camp saw or hand saw
Small Camp shovel
Cotton Balls/Vaseline- I know that sounds messed up but it the best way to start a fire.
First Aid kit
Carton of Cigarettes :smokin:
Sleeping Bags/camping pad
Bug repellent/sun screen
Flashlights with extra batteries
homemade MRE (Meal ready to eat)
Water purification tablets or filter
a. 2 pairs of jeans
b. 5-7 t shirts
c. 10 pairs of socks/boxers
d. Long sleeve clothing (thermals and or hoodies)
e. spare shoes/boots

We will be setting up camp as we go along. Our hike will be about 25 miles to finish. The terrain will be very dense forest with some elevation changes.
