  • Looking for safe and fun places to go camping near NC

  • Great tips! Alot of people think they have to pack half their house to take camping with them. Just a few items will do especially when it's a short trip. Thank you for the video!

  • cool video MOD. the fact that your from NC is awsome, from NC myself, been to same area many times hiking but not camping. one day take family up there.

  • Number 10: A firearm (unless you're a soy-boy Democrat).

  • You forgot the most important thing you need to go car camping.......A car !

  • Dude. Your content is fantastic. I lived in/ traveled in a van for a few months back in 2015 and back pack often but this was a great refresher for my upcoming trip to the Colorado back country. Keep it up!

  • You definitely need a car.

  • Wasn't expecting to see Best Damn EDC when I clicked on this video!

  • So, in PIshah, you can just pull your car over and camp somewhere? Are there designated places to do car camping?

  • كيف تذهب الى دورة المياه ؟

  • A car should be on the list

  • Beer.

  • Throw a sleeping bag in the back of the rig and a couple of bags of jerky. Done! Oh and a first aid kit, Oh and toilet paper. Welp, I'm going to the store.

  • Do you just poop on the ground and put the used toilet paper on top? Maybe cover it up with leaves. Maybe you should add a shovel to the "must have" items. Alternatively if your camping next to a lake or stream you could just take a liquid duce. 😁

  • Would you recommend bringing a small cooking stove instead of using fires for cooking? It seems like a simpler and cleaner option.

    • Yeah, like the one burner model from Coleman. Doesn't take up much room either.

  • I make a point nowadays of looking for canned goods with pop tops so I dont have to have a can opener. I do carry a can opener, but I try to get stuff that doesn't require me to have one.

  • Xclnt list! There are times I’m ready to take off and the work of planning, shopping, cooking and cleanup of food bog me down . You can just eat very simply without cooking or a big heated washup. It’s also pretty liberating to just plan on sleeping in the car. Even in the warm summer days, depending on where you are, fog can roll in and dampen and chill whereas the hard shell of the car can protect and give a cozier atmosphere. Whatever slows you down from taking off and getting out there, find a simpler way bc days outdoors are just too precious to miss!

  • Yes, other people sometimes don't bring what they need. A warm hat goes a long way to peaceful sleep if it gets cold. As for fires, so many places don't allow them now and they are hard to put out. It can take gallons of water to put out out embers in some fires.

  • Really good video eh bud

  • My boyfriend, his daughter and I went camping for the first time together last weekend and it was great. Definitely would love to try car camping.

  • Gotta cook something on the camp fire.

  • I am a first aider

  • How many guns should I carry and what types +

  • Came here to hate one whatever list you came up with and tell you how wrong you were going to be, but you straight up nailed this! Nice work!

  • Thanks for this! I have finally decided to stop waiting for others and just do what I enjoy. Working on planning my first car camping trip and this was very helpful !

  • helpful but this is about camping not car camping

    • I haven't been camping since I was a small kid, and now I'm an old man. To me, "car camping" is just camping in a big metal tent!! Easy peasy, and safer, more secure for those nervous about first camping experiences. So like the man says,, JUST GET OUT THERE!! Thanks for all the comments on a very good video. :)

  • thank you for mentioning a trash bag

  • I only need two things: 1. A Car 2. A giant Bag full of gear.

  • I've been really wanting to get out there and this video gave me my push to go. Thanks bro!

  • I am new to camping and found this video to be interesting with info that I will actually use. I like that the first aid kit was a good size, your info about safety and bring a trash bag, lol

  • Pack it in, pack it out. Simple rule.

  • Love my Lucis!! Why is water not listed?! Thanks for the video.🙂

  • I'm watching this because I'm planning to go car camping this weekend

  • #1 - A car. Sorry, just had to. Isn't it sad how classless people can be leaving their trash behind for others to enjoy?! I give you a thumbs up just for using the word "Onomatopoeia." LOL Oh, and another thumbs up for exhorting all to pick up after themselves. Let's all act like the adults we claim to be. Be well, all.

  • Define car camping. I see a tent?

  • NC baby!

  • You don't need 9! You only need one: stuff you need to camp with. If you're going to combine several items into one item on the list, why stop there?

  • Nice video. Short, to the point, and informative.

  • Bugsoc window screens for your car.

  • I like this guy short, sweet and to the point, no nonsense of narcissism we see a lot of. Great job!

  • Great video! Your suggestions of key things for car camping are very thoughtful. If the bugs are out, don’t forget to include spray to keep the mosquitoes and other bugs away.

  • Car not included

  • Great video my friend, thank you so much for sharing. You brought out some great pointers. Take care out there and always be safe. 🤗

  • Please, please, please do NOT bury toilet paper. Animals tend to dig things like that up and your efforts are for naught. put them in a sealable bag and dispose of them in a proper disposal site,

  • i got my first light my fire utensils at forecastle fest in 2005. still got em.

  • I've done a lot of car camping but usually bring a tent. Some suggestion, hopefully they haven't been mentioned; Instant coffee and some sugar packets you get in restaurants, evap milk for creamer, canned soups, Dinty Moore beef stew (oh yeah!), canned pork & beans, ravioli, spaghetti O's and the like, and a Can Opener! Potatoes in the fire. Aluminum Foil rules! an onion is great. Some butter or margerine, salt and pepper packets from where you got the sugar. The stuff all fits in a box. Not exactly back packing, but car camping is different. And a deck of cards. Trash bags of course!! Have fun!

  • Did anyone mention Aluminum Foil? Should be on your list. A tarp and some paracord can come in very handy. And they take up little room.

  • One suggestion. Toilet paper is fragile and if it gets wet, you're back to using leaves. What I did in the Alaskan bush was to take paper towels and even if they got wet you could still use them.

  • Thumbs DOWN 👎 You promised in the title NINE things for car camping. In your video you add more w/o counting them: 1. First Aid Kit 2. Sleeping bag 3. Sleeping pad 4. Cleaning supplies 5. Trash bags 6. Food 7. Water 8. Cooler ( you seem to be always taking it!) 9. Eating utensils 10. Flash lamp or light 11. Headlamp 12. Sharp Knife 13. Fire starter 14. Appropriate clothing

    • So he over delivered? Probably something you've never done.

  • OK, but stating the obvious a bit. If you have a car why not take everything you need or may need? For me a stove and a pan is a priority. Hot cooked food makes for a better camping experience.

  • Firearms? :D

  • Great video! thank you!

  • Car camping.......I like this idea. 🤗

  • Great video man! I miss WNC!

  • So nice of you thinking about other people that might get cold. I remember one trip I had last summer and somehow the temperature dropped near 0 degrees celcius. A friend of mine had an extra coat that I could borrow and I was so grateful. I've learned to better check the temperature and bring extra clothing! ;)

  • Your video was awesome. Loved the expression, Don't get caught up in the details!! I agree and shared this with my husband who always makes many excuses. Really to me camping isn't about the food but about the great outdoors. You really can keep it simple and have plenty to eat. Thanks again.

  • Number 10 should be camp chair! I even take one on cruise ships!!

  • Fleshlight?

  • You forgot about the 3 gazillion ton winch, grappling hooks, night vision goggles, 18 light bars, percussion grenade, pocket swimming pool, full kitchen, custom drawer system, gps beacon, short wave radio, cb, flares, harpoon etc. Of course you all that stuff should be provided free of charge for by the manufacturer. Well, at least that's what the other channels show.

  • Great video!
