A Truck Camping Checklist is to make sure that you have everything needed for your trip. After arriving, would not be the time to find out that you left something behind, such as your sleeping bag. Therefore, even if you think you will remember, get out a piece of paper and a pencil and start planning.
Whether you are Truck or Car camping needs will be similar the difference will be the vehicle. The checklist will consist of subcategories such as equipment, supplies, food, and clothing.
When making any of your packing lists, start with the very basics and expand from there. Think about the space you have, this will not only help decide what you really need, but also decide what you need to purchase. Some of the items you purchase will have to be more compact. Pre-staging the items on your checklist will help you in determining what remove or add to your lists.
This will be time consuming on your first trip, but eventually you will develop a Truck Camping Checklist that can be used for every trip. Consider storage containers to hold some or all of your items on your various lists. We have use containers since our first trip. Taping the checklist to the inside cover allows us to quickly review the list and make sure we have everything. Not only can be transported quickly but can be used as tables to set things on.
Pages that maybe included are:
Camping Gear Checklist
Camping Supply List
Camping Food List
Camping Packing List
Below are two links that will give you an idea of some of the items on each of these checklists.
This will be a list that you determine what is included. There will be some basic food items that you will take on every trip and other just for the trip you are about to take. Camp Cooking page goes into more detail as to develop your Camping Food List, which includes Camping Menu and Recipes. Making your list will assure that you have all of the food with you and can be part of your packing list.
Other lists that may be useful are Clothing List, Packing List, and Activity List. These are lists that will be ever changing depending on where you are going, how long you will be gone, and what time of year. To easily create these lists, if you are computer suave, is to create a spreadsheet for each of them and edit them when planning each trip.
You may be going on vacation, but the chances are you are going to be in the middle of nature so be prepared.
