Camping Checklist

I’m off again for a few days – there may be blog silence as I’m not sure if I’ll have a phone or net connection. I’m heading back to Broken Hill to hang out with my poets and get some wind in my hair. My sister and I arranged this a few weeks back – now it’s happening that the trip will be my version of a break away in hospital. Out bush does good things to me, good things to my soul.

If you love travelling or camping too, you might find my checklist a good place to start in creating your own. I don’t take everything for every trip, and most trips we come back and add something new we hadn’t thought of, or rearrange how items are stored a little bit. But it’s good to have a quick checklist, and a basic system of grouping stuff makes it much easier to find.

Murphy’s Law is that if you forget an item from your first aid kit, that will be the injury that happens that trip. You have been warned! 🙂

I’m hoping the time away will be worth the admin hangover it will give me when I get back, and the unhappiness at leaving Rose behind because she has to work. 😦 She’s going to be looking after Zoe while I’m gone… so I’m not real sure what state her mental health will be in by the time I get back at the end of the week… 😉 I’m lucky to have such support around me.
