Module 6: How To Prepare For A Quick Camping Getaway

You have established your home storage system in the previous module.

Now it's time to get ready and organized for your next camping trip.

How exciting – you can't wait. 

And when does that start?

When you return home from the previous one.

And if you want to be able to head off for a quick camping getaway at short notice, then at any time you need to be organized and ready to go (or as ready as you can be).

While the 1 Hour Pack might not be achievable yet, the better organized you are, and the better habits you form early, the easier and more natural packing for camping at short notice will be.

Step 1:

Download the 1 Hour Pack checklist - either the PDF or the Word version if you want to edit the document. (Note that some of the items on the checklist will relate to other modules).

The checklist is broken down into the following categories:

1: THE FOUNDATIONS: STORE AND ORDER (See Module 5): ⃝

2. AT ANY TIME: BE READY TO ROLL

  • Planning: ⃝ 
  • Car-keeping:

3. LET’S GO CAMPING: THE 1HOUR PACK (part 1)

  • Camping gear
  • Clothing and bedding: 
  • General 

4. HITTING THE ROAD: THE 1HOUR PACK (part 2) 

5. AFTER EACH CAMPING TRIP

Step 2:
Familiarize yourself with the steps and consider if there are any additions, or amendments based on your circumstances or other practical considerations. Make changes as you go along as well.

Note the checklist also includes what to do when you return home as well as in between camping trips.

At the end of this module
You will have a personalized packing checklist based on the 1 Hour Pack program. You can check out the 1 Hour Pack Program if you want more ideas to reduce your packing time.
