With summer in full effect, there’s no time like the present to head off into the wilderness on an adventure! Whether you prefer to travel by car, boat, or plane, or whether you like to rough it out or stay in chalets, nothing beats the outdoors! If you’re planning your next camping trip or ATV road trip and don’t know where to start, you’ve come to the right place! Here’s a list of essentials and everything you need to know to make sure your next overnight adventure goes off without a hitch!
Food can cooking equipment
When you’re in the wilderness, finding food will be tricky, so you’ll need to bring your own on your overnight adventures. Start by planning out your journey and figuring out how much food and drink you’ll need for everyone on board. Lightweight non-perishables are your best bet if you want to travel light in terms of food, but bring what you need. Make sure you’ve got all your cooking essentials from knives and matches to oil and propane cookers. Plot your route so you can pass by safe, drinkable water, but don’t forget to pack your own too!
After food and drink, your next adventure essential is a hauling option. Let’s face it, if you’re planning an extended stay in the wilderness, you’re going to need some place to store and carry all your things. Finding the right utility trailer is key when traversing the outdoors, especially by ATV. When choosing a utility trailer, the most important factors you need to consider are intended use, suspension, and safety. Once you’ve found the right trailer, you can start packing and get your show on the road!
Gas and power supply
Another essential every good ATV traveler needs when on the road is enough juice to keep going. You’ll need to make sure you have a secure gas and power supply in case of emergencies. To make sure you’ll have enough for the road, be sure to calculate how much you’ll need for your vehicle, and plot some stops along the way to refuel and refill. Even though your ATV can charge your devices, bring an external power source or some batteries just in case, and you’re good to go!
Protection from the elements
Last but not least, if you want your wilderness adventure to go off without a hitch, you’ll need to be ready for whatever it has to throw at you. Make sure you’ve got some rain gear, waterproof tarps, tents, and hiking shoes for starters. Whether you’re up in the mountains or out in the open, make sure to bring some layers and thermo sleeping bags to stay warm. Depending on where you’ll be going and the time of year, the elements can be harsh, so be sure to pack warm, dry, and safe!
So there you have it! With this guide in mind, you’re all set to set off into uncharted territory this summer! For starters, make sure you’ve got enough food and provisions to last you on your travels, and make sure you have some hauling options to carry them. Chart your route to refill on gas but don’t forget to bring your own and some extra power. Last but not least, keep safe from the elements in the area you’ll be traveling in, and you’re good to go! Good luck and safe travels!
