I like lists. If I go to the store for 3 things I make a list because inevitably I’ll get distracted and forget something on the list.
Since we are fairly new campers, and very new to kayaking, I went looking for a couple of lists to help plan an upcoming excursion. I found some great ones at REI.
I also found a Ten Essentials checklist that had some great ideas. If you are going remote camping – even in a vehicle – it’s smart to have a ten essetials kit.
By the way, check out other articles on REI’s Expert Advice page – really good stuff.
