Sierra Trading Post Tip: Most camping gear stores sell kits of essentials like soap, sunscreen, and such, make just for campers and backpackers. Check to see if your local store carries these kits, or look for kits online. They make it a lot easier to remember all the essentials you need when you camp. Keep your knife handy by placing it in a knife case or hanging it on a lanyard. Most camping and hiking gear stores carry accessories like these, so check when you purchase your knife to see what they offer. Also have your knife professionally sharpened from time to time to keep it in the best condition possible.
