We’re heading out early this week to the Kenai River to do our fishing for the year. We’ll be tent camping in between hours on the river. This is a once-a-year opportunity for us to stock our freezer with incredibly delicious and nutritious Alaskan salmon.
Going fishing is lots of work. It can easily become an overwhelming proposition to get all the gear together, pack it into the vehicles, drive 3+ hours on one of Alaska’s most dangerous highways, fish from 7-11 each day, pack it all up and come home only to still have the cleaning and processing work ahead!
How to Get it All Together Without Falling Apart:
To help myself stay organized and make sure I’m not forgetting something, I created this camping packing list. This is what I use as a base whenever we’re heading out into the great outdoors.
For our fishing trip this week I will add some specific items that I don’t generally take on a camping trip (like filet knives!). But I always take a few moments to write down what extra items I might need. There’s nothing as frustrating as showing up at your outdoor adventure location without a critical item (bug spray!).
I hope this list is helpful for you! What is your must-have for camping? Let me know in the comments!
