A first-time camping trip in the Sierra can be nerve-wracking to plan. It’s easy to fall into the trap of not getting everything you need the first time. Well, we’re here to help. You may not realize you need these items on your camping trip, but they’ll certainly enrich your experience.
While it’s tempting to go “completely off the grid” into nature, portable generators are indispensable to camping life. For instance, the last thing you want is not to be able to charge your phone if there’s an emergency. You could need to contact someone, or someone could be desperately trying to contact you. Regardless, it’s useful to have. You should and shouldn’t do many things with a portable generator. But if you learn how to work it, you’ll quickly wonder how you ever went without one. Whether you’re trying to power a monitor or charge your portable electric stove, a portable generator is essential to your needs.
The last thing you want is to get to the end of your camping trip and wake up the next morning with a dead car battery. The portable jump starter can give your car the jolt of power it needs to start again if it’s dead. It essentially offers you an independent way to jumpstart your vehicle. Roadside assistance services and others’ help on the road force you to depend on other people for your needs. Do yourself a favor and get a portable jump starter because you may need it on your camping trip sooner than you realize.
Portable Toilet and Shower
Camping showers and toilets both offer luxury no matter where you camp. They’re particularly useful when you’re away from any public restroom facilities. Like the jumper cables, the key boon of a portable toilet and shower is “independence.” You no longer need to stick to a camping site near a restroom facility; you can go wherever you want and reap all the benefits of a private at-home restroom.
In short, having these items with you can save you in emergencies. You never know when you may need them, so it’s best to have them on hand. Get these items, and you’ll be ready for whatever comes your way.
