The (Other) 5 Essentials You Need For Camping

The Other 5 Essentials Camping.POST

We’ve camped a lot and there are things you need for camping. Besides the tent, the sleeping bags and the matches to start the fire, we’ve found these to be the (other) 5 essentials you need to take camping.

We absolutely need our coffee to get the day started.  This has been our camping lifesaver.
  • 3 cup French Press Coffeemaker allows you to brew flavorful coffee in 4 minutes
  • 3-Part stainless steel mesh filter is included which allows for a premium extraction of your coffee aromatic oils and subtle flavors
  • No paper filters required, means more flavor without any waste
  • Patented safety lid prevents splashing of liquids while pressing
  • Dishwasher-safe for quicker cleaning
The absolute easiest way to get your water boiling.  Instead of waiting an hour or more for the campfire to heat up, have instant hot water for coffee and cleaning up those delicious breakfast tacos that were ready to eat in 5 minutes rather than 50!  Camping during the heat of summer often leads to open fire bans anyway…

…and yes, if you’ve read our post “How To Avoid Saying “Crap, I Forgot The…” When Camping“, you KNOW we have to include the rubber mallet!

On too many occasions, we have had to use rocks or bricks found around our campsite to hammer in the tent stakes.  It’s awkward, painful, and likely to break your stakes if you’re not precise enough with the strike.  Do yourselves a favour and make sure you have this with you for each and every camping trip.
  • Rubber head with wooden handle
