Wow, this pandemic has really shown that I've been becoming a 'prepper' without even realising it!
I suppose that's what camping is really all about. Having everything to hand when you have to survive on the basics. Plus, anything can happen when you're away from the 'home base', so first aid and cooking pots are a natural thing to add to the list.
But, have you ever wondered what you need to survive over the recommended 72hrs without basic essentials? Here's my list of valuable items that I had been gathering over the past year for my vanlife adventure:
You can get most of it from your local Superstore, but here are some links to Amazon:
