Hi everyone! :) (sorry for my english, french is my mother tongue)
On Instructables i saw many many BoB or EDC bag, but what do you have to buy if you are not a survivalist?
I'm gonna share you my backpack for a one night bivouac, not for a survivalist or pro-bushcrafter, but just for wilderness lovers.
Step 1: My Backpack
My backpack is very simple, because i don't need a sophisticated bag for 1 night.
I bought it in a famous sport shop in france (Decathlon) for 20€ (25US$) or a little bit more.
It's a 40L bag, and that's more than enough!
Step 2: Time to Sleep!
After a long day of trekking, you just want to have a good sleep so, for one or two nights, i just take my ultra compact sleeping bag and my ticket to the moon hammock.
that the best things you can take with you for 1 or 2 nights, simple, small, efficient.
Step 3: Security
For small problems, you MUST have an emergency case, compact and useful.
You can buy that for only 5 euros, so don't DIY it because inside a 5€ emergency kit, everything you need will be inside.
Step 4: Security
For your security, try to keep lights with you.
I always have with me 2 frontal lamps (petzl) and a camp lamp (that's a bluetooth speaker to lol)
I can charge my phone and the camp lamp with my small solar charger, and that's so useful!
I always keep my small military shovel with me because that is a tool i can need in an extreme situation, or exceptional problem.
Step 5: Secondary Things You'll Need
There is many secondary things you will have to bring with you:
- A knife , i use an Opinel N°8 outdoor
- a waterproof box (for matches, lighter etc...)
- a firesteel, but you always have to take a LIGHTER
For me that is the essential things you have to bring with you, now feel free to add things you want.
As you can see, with my stuff, i have a big backpack for not so many things to put inside, that's normal, so please don't forget to take something to eat and clothes to wear ;)
Thank you and see you soon :)
(Sorry again for my english)
