Depending on your situation, you will need: - Firewood and fire starters - Utility lighter - Sand to smother the fire - Shovel to dig a spot - Metal skewers for s’mores
You never know the water situation in a cabin and whether or not it is clean and good to drink. Consider bringing a large reusable water cooler, refillable water bottles, and a Lifestraw.
Chances are that there’s never going to be enough room in your cabin refrigerator (if it has one) for all of your food and beverages. This is why we always recommend bringing along a dependable cooler if you’re going to a cabin.
Anytime that you’re visiting a cabin by the lake or in the woods, I recommend that you bring along an insect repellent that contains a minimum of 30% DEET. Remember to reapply every 8 hours for effectiveness.
Bringing along a durable flashlight is important for both convenience and safety. Whether you’re headed out after nightfall for some stargazing, or if you happen to lose power, it’s always good to have a flashlight or two just in case.
