Thread: My Car Camping Checklist

  1. #1

    Default My Car Camping Checklist

    Maybe it can help someone else out
    UPDATED
    Stuff:
    Wristband-MOST IMPORTANT! You cant get within a mile of Coachella without it.
    Canopy- Putting it over your tent is very nice! The more private your campsite the better. In my opinion.
    Sheets (to hang for shade) or for sleeping.
    Clothes-Duh.
    Shoes-Duh.
    Tent-VERY ESSENTIAL!! place to keep your stuff and sleep.
    Tent Fan- it can still get pretty hot in your tent.
    Rubber Mallet-To spike down yo Tent!
    Mattress pump-Blowing it up with your lungs would really suck.
    Folding Table-Have breakfast on it. Play PB. have a smoke sesh around it. What im getting at is.. ITS USEFULL!
    Battery for Mattress- Blowing it up with your lungs would really suck.
    Blow up Mattress-I use this plus a sleeping bag. Quite comfortable. Had 1 in the tent and one in the car.
    Sleeping bag/or sheets-sucks to sleep on the ground.
    Pillow-Pillows are greattttt
    Hat-If you like to sport em i suggest u bring em! lots of sun!
    Bandana- to cover face while taking nap
    Phone charger-they have charging stations in the camp site. but car phone chargers are great to!
    Phone-Essential. Keep in touch with fellow campers. Pictures and videos.
    Ipod-See below
    Headphones-if you like to sleep with beats? otherwise dont bring em. There are too many real life greats acts playing
    Walkie Talkies- Phone reception is terrible. Walkie talkies is an easy way to keep in touch.
    Grill with Propane- Feels great to wake up and make your own breakfast without having to leave your campsite.
    Trash Bags-Dont litter at Coachella fool! Well get you.
    Lighters- What chu gonna light your cigs with?
    Your Favorite smoking piece(leave bongs at home)

    Tickets
    Sunglasses- Alot of sun in your eyes. bring em!
    Lots of Cash-Its always good to bring extra. Just dont lose it.
    Cooler-Keep all your food items and other stuff cold!
    Wallet-Money, ID, Credit Cards. BRING IT
    Condoms- Very important. Have fun. be spontanious if you want. But at least be safe
    Ibuprofen
    Benadryl
    Aloe Vera-Alot of people get sunburned.
    Sharpie-Get some numbers.. Do work! or have it ready for when you meet (Insert your favorite Coachella Artist here)
    Bungie Cords- Tie down your stuff in or on your car. As well as a quick fix on makeshift Car camping ideas.
    Earplugs- People can be loud in the campsite. Some much more than others. If you want guaranteed sleep then bring these.
    Jumper Cables-My car died last year when Coachella was over. Jumper Cables are a must!
    Duct Tape- Great on the fly tool for camp ideas!
    Towels- Dry yoselfffff off!
    Sandals for shower-There is a thread about pooping in the shower....Need i say more?
    Flashlight-The night is wild. And you will be inebriated. Not too dark cause of all the movement but itll come in handy.
    Foldable Chairs- Sucks always sitting on the ground at your camp ground.
    Video Camera- You can relive the awesome after its all finished.
    Picture Camera- So when you run into (Insert your favorite Coachella Artist here)
    Rope - Very usefull for on the fly Tent ideas.
    Tarps- Can give you privacy or can provide shade with your tents.
    Backpack: Sucks caring stuff in your hands. Leave it in your tent if its not necessary.
    Wet Wipes
    Hygiene Stuff
    Deodorant-Please use this.
    Comb
    Mirror
    Toothbrush
    Toothpaste- Your breath will smell bad after all the substance you may consume
    Shampoo
    Soap- If you even shower. Had to wait in a line for 3 hours one year to take a damn shower!
    Face Wash
    Sunscreen-Trust me. Youll need it. A Ton Of Sun!
    Razor, Shaving Cream
    Chap stick

    Food and drink is really up to you.
    But
    Some ideas:
    Ice or dry ice. Will last the whole weekend. And ice at Coachella is around $10 for a small bag.
    Water- Stay Very Hydrated. It gets very hot in the morning-Afternoon
    Boxed wine
    Hard Alcohol
    Beer
    Weed
    REDBULL
    Apples, Oranges, Grapes
    Cup Of Noodles
    Chips
    Crackers
    Trash Bags
    Chaser Limes
    Salt
    silverware
    Peanut butter an jelly (NO GLASS JARS)
    bread
    Napkins- Coachella can get messy
    Granola bars
    Orange Juice
    Coke (the drink) or if your into the other....
    Burgers
    Buns Ketchup, mustard

    you got sleeping pills... don't forget waking pills, too

    wet wipes are for the toilets when they inevitably run out of toilet paper....

    they're also good for wiping the sweat off!

    well slap my ass & call me a bitch.

    i'll be sad to have to remove the rusty hammer that's been a staple in my car for no apparent reason whatsoever before i leave.
    & also inconvenienced when i have to temporarily replace my car windows with saran wrap. no glass, guys.

    Baby powder, gold bond, or that body glide stuff for runners so you don't end up having a bad time!
