Camping Hacks Series: Packing Hacks

 Just a few ways to maximize space!

By Anne McCarty 

Packing before a trip is probably the most crucial thing to do before setting out. It is a chance to check and recheck that you have everything you need and take out the things you don’t need. The phrase many stand by is “Bring what you think you’ll need, then take out half of it.” So to help you out a little bit, this time on camping hacks we’ll give you a few ways to make sure your pack doesn’t weigh you down!

The Great Towel Debate

One thing people debate about bringing is a towel and the primary con is that it takes up too much space. The solution? Pack a shammy towel! It’s a thin towel used primarily by swimmers and divers. It is lightweight and super absorbent!

Eggcellent Solution

Backpackers and campers alike usually pack dehydrated food because it’s lightweight and can turn into a full meal with just water. One of the not as famous choices are the dehydrated eggs. If you are one of the people looking for an alternative we have something for you! Try putting cracked eggs into a water bottle. One bottle can hold eight eggs!
