Furthermore, the camping equipment owns you as much as you own the equipment and so your first priority should be to take along only the most necessary items – nothing more and nothing less. In addition, you need to also factor in that you will need space to store the equipment, load it and then unload it and so it pays to understand the sagacity of the saying ‘less is more’. In fact, experts that know all about camping equipment will recommend taking with you less equipment than you really need though of course it does mean taking along items that will help with body maintenance, shelter and sleeping and those that involve food and water.
