Keeping a set of camping gear ready and waiting is the easiest way to head out to the campground on the spur of the moment. Most people keep a separate "stash" of equipment and camping gear, from pots and pans to cooking utensils, towels and even chairs and tables. It's just easier and keeps your camping equipment organized and all in one place when you need it.
You don't need to spend a fortune to create your own camping gear stash. Garage sales and thrift shops are great places to look for old pots and pans, towels, and even camping clothing and accessories.
Buy the best sleeping bags, tent, and backpacks you can afford, and fill the rest of your stash with eclectic and cheaper gear. That way you'll always be ready to hit the road to your favorite campground!
