Paul asks…

What are the 10 essentials that I need for a three day camping trip?

I’m going on a three day camping trip and I need to know what I have to take. I’ll be in a wooded area in July weather

Martin answers:

The 10 Essentials is a list of basic equipment which will serve as insurance against the unexpected on any camping/outdoor activity. Every good Boy Scout and outdoorsman knows and brings the 10 Essentials with them on camping trips. They are:

1 Map
2 Compass
3 Flashlight/Headlamp
4 Extra Food
5 Extra Clothes
6 Sunglasses
7 First Aid Kit
8 Waterproof Matches/Firestarter
9 Pocketknife/Multi-tool (Leatherman, Gerber, etc)
10 Shelter

Note that this is not a comprehensive list of everything you should take, but a list of equipment that will help you get through unexpected events that inevitably occur.

Spiders hate chestnuts.

Get a few chestnuts, poke holes in the shell with a pin and put them around the walls and around your bed.

Martin answers:

Wear pants! Seriously, if its not super hot wear long sleeves and pants. And bring proper riding shoes.

Long sleeves and pants are important because it will protect your legs and arms from ticks, bugs, and any plants that may irritate your skin.

Also bring a good sturdy hat and camping/hunting strength bug spray as well as a sturdy poncho.

Unfortunately there is no real way of keeping spiders out of your bed. The best thing to do is make your bed every day, that will shake anything out and wipe down any webs you see forming.

Yes, you’ll want to look cute while there, but there is nothing cute about having bug bites and a rash.
