Hi Guys, here is a handy checklist of things you might want to think about bringing for our campers.
Credit: This is totally modded from SOLAR‘s camping checklist, and if you ever end up on the East Coast they’re a fun game to play.
Most Important (lol!):
Clothing & Garb:
[__] Costuming (at least two outfits and make sure they are weather smart)
On weekends where we will have VERY cold, wet weather… Bring layers, you can always remove layers. If you like to wear skirts/kilts, wear pants underneath when the temperature drops.
[__]Extra Costuming, it just helps to be over-prepared.
[__] Real world clothing (If you have to leave site, try to do so in civvies)
[__] Makeup (don’t forget ears, horns, spirit gum/remover)
[__] Pouches, packs and bags
[__] Weapons and armor
[__] Belts, quivers
[__] Comfortable footwear (for monstering/NPCing)
[__] Extra socks and underwear. Twice as many socks and underwear as you think you need. Really.
[__] White headband
[__] Orange headband (for if you partake of adult beverages)
[__] Spell/Poison packets
[__] Sports bra or jock strap if you need the support
[__] Cloak or cape
[__] Gloves or Gauntlets
[__] An extra pair of boots or shoes, in case your main pair gets too wet.
[__] Boffer weapons.
[__] NPC blacks that are WARM.
[__] Warm PJs.
Snacks & Drinks:
[__] Bottled Water
[__] Easy to make camp food.
[__] Sports Drinks
[__] Energy bars
[__] Trail mix
[__] Nuts and fruit (Don’t let game be an excuse for not eating right)
[__] Napkins, cups, plates, utensils. Prefer non-disposable for character immersion and trash management: Like wooden plates you can pick up at any thrift store. Keep them oiled and they’re magnificent.
[__] Paper towels
[__] Toothbrush, toothpaste, floss and mouthwash
[__] Soap or Body Wash
[__] Scrubby or washcloth
[__] Toilet paper (never know when there won’t be any, white headband in emergencies)
[__] Shower shoes
[__] Shampoo (Also, conditioner, hairspray, etc.)
[__] Brush and/or comb
[__] Hair ties
[__] Eye Glasses or Contact cases (WITH solution!)
[__] Small mirror
[__] Trash Bags for pack out, also for keeping your stuff dry and keeping your shoes from getting water all over your tent.
[__] Bedding material (sleeping bag/ sheets, pillows, blankets, etc)
[__] First aid kit (bandages, aspirin, antacids, allegies, etc)
[__] Personal medication
[__] Notepad and pen
[__] Sewing kits and safety pins (costume upkeep & repair)
[__] Credit Card/checkbook/cash
[__] Tape (duct/electrical/colored)
[__] Pocket knife
[__] Extra lighting for cabin
[__] Alarm clock
[__] Extra Batteries
[__] Energy Drinks, Caffeine, B12, etc.
[__] Tarps for under your tent, and over stuff you don’t want to get wet.
[__] Tent heater
[__] Ear plugs, if you’re a light sleeper.
[__] Camp Stove to cook with
[__] Hand and feet warmers.

[__] Lores, letters, and other misc IP knowledge reference
