A lighter… It may seem incredible, but a simple lighter can ruin our trip in a CAMPER. We may have an adventurous spirit, and even like TV survival programs, but if you have to light up the camping-gas to cook spaghettis by rubbing two sticks… Let’s accept it, we are not freaks. We don’t want to eat worms, but if you are in the middle of nowhere, as it should be, in your Camper and excited because you are going have your meal with a view to the horizon, and you forgot a simple lighter… you’ll end up eating worms!
This is why before closing your suitcases desperate to start your hundred-mile trip as soon as possible, stop for a second, breathe and check.
One of the things I do is to imagine how a normal day of the trip would be like, from the moment we wake up until we go back to sleep at night. Let’s do it, and this way we’ll see everything that is important and, apparently, not important.
