Without much to do these days, taking to the great outdoors is the perfect way to enjoy the weekend. Maybe you are not a regular camper but just want to unwind in nature for a night. Here is an easy 20-item packing list for those wanting to take a quick getaway with only the necessities, and (bonus!) a few ideas for easy foods for you to cook over the fire.

  2. Tent or covered hammock if you trust the weather and want to walk lighter
  3. Waterproofing spray (I’m telling you this works wonders!)
  4. Sleeping bag
  5. Garbage bag
  6. Towel
  7. Extra pair of clothes
  8. Bug spray (ALWAYS)
  9. Sunscreen
  10. Foldable iron grill top and spatula (to easily put over the fire and scrape off food remnants)
  11. Aluminum foil
  12. Matches
  13. Lighter Fluid (trust me on this one)
  14. Medicine Kit
  15. Flashlight
  16. Extra batteries or portable charger
