Start the camping checklist from scratch.Sitting down, create a list of anything you would like brought and everything you would like on your next camping excursion. Keep the list handy so should anything be thought up, it can be easily written down. Also, online camping checklists can be used as a guideline. These are typically free to use and easy to print right from the website. How can this work for you? Add to this list you own ideas of what you need and don\'t need. Most of the lists available on the Internet are generalized in nature so adding a bit of your personality flair. To even find these list, you will need to do an Internet search using the Yahoo Search Engine or Google Search Engine. One of the more interesting things to do when trying to make out a camping list, is visualize what you would like to do and eat as well as fun activities associated with camping such as hiking, swimming or even singing. What will you be wearing should the weather be too hot or it gets colder?
Next, we transferred the information over to an Excel spreadsheet. It\'s not imperative that you use Excel, or even a computer for that matter, but I always have my computer with me. You can write it down on a piece of copy paper if you have to. I just wouldn\'t recommend Jill\'s Post_It method. That can be okay if you think of something while you\'re out, but don\'t have your checklist with you at the time. Just be sure to transfer it to your checklist as soon as you can. Once everything was transferred to the Excel checklist I had created for her, she told me which items on the list she had finished, and we checked those off. She even remembered a few more ideas she had about the menu, so we entered those in the appropriate section.
