Prepare For Your 2022 Adventures

Prepare For Your 2022 Adventures

28th Jan 2022

Are you ready for your first adventure of 2022? If you haven't planned out your next trip yet, now might be a good time to start thinking about where you want to go and what you might need to take with you.

The first thing that comes to mind when planning an outdoor adventure is the equipment and kit that you'll need to survive in the wild. It's important to have enough food, water, shelter, and clothing on hand so that you can stay safe whilst on your adventure.

Here are some of the essential things we would recommend to purchase before starting your adventures, it includes all of the items needed to survive in the wilderness.

Waterproof backpack or duffle bag (for storing extra clothes)

Having a waterproof bag on you is important for protecting yourself from the rain and other unexpected weather conditions. You should also make sure that the bag has plenty of room inside to store everything you'll need while camping.

Sleeping bag

We would suggest taking a sturdy sleeping bag with you, this way you won’t have to worry about having a warm place to sleep at night. This could also be used as a pillow if you don't like sleeping on the ground. Being comfy also allows you to have a good nights sleep to recharge for the next day of adventures.


You should always bring a tent along with you for shelter from the rain and wind. They also provide protection against animals such as snakes and insects, allowing you somewhere to go and re-energise.

Matches / lighter

A lighter is essential for creating fires, which will help you cook food. They are also useful for signalling to people who may come across you during your adventure. Or simply, a lighter can be used to create a fire to keep you warm when you're camping or hiking.

Multi tool

Carrying a multi-tool or knife with you can be useful when camping or hiking, to cut food or to help with your day to day survival, when needing to put up shelters.

First aid kit

If you are going to start planning your first adventure of 2022, it is important that you have a First Aid Kit with you. This kit may contain bandages, antiseptic cream, painkillers, splints, and other medical supplies that you may require. Having a first aid kit on you means that you will not have to search around for medical supplies when injured.


Food is an essential to take with you on your adventures, but there are different types of foods available depending on what type of adventure you're doing. If you are camping or hiking then you should consider bringing dried fruit and nuts. If you are fishing then you should bring energy bars and protein shakes.


Make sure you pack a compass, this will help you navigate safely through unfamiliar terrain. It will also keep you oriented so that you know how far away you are from home.


Take a camera with you on your adventures, especially if you're going somewhere new. This way you can capture memories of your adventure and share them with friends and family back home.

We hope that these essentials will help you on your first adventure of 2022. If you have any questions please get in touch with our experts here at Heinnie Haynes.
