These are all items that I have personally used and recommend. At no extra cost to you, I may receive compensation if you decide to purchase these items for yourself. Thanks for helping to support my efforts here and my adventures!

 

Camping & Lightweight Travel Gear

My personal favorites for traveling and being comfy on the go.  Whether you're camping, backpacking, or heading out on a road trip, these are my must-haves!

Battery powered rechargeable USB fan

Need a breeze in your car or tent? This is an essential for comfortable sleeping on-the-go. I love them so much, I have 2.

Portable Shower Caddy

Super convenient mesh shower caddy for all your travel toiletry needs. Keep everything organized and ready to go!

Micro-fiber Quick-Dry Towel

Convenient to pack, dry, and use, this towel is a must-have. Easy to hang dry with a snap-on loop, and tiny to pack away. Never have a wet towel camping again

Jetboil Cooking System

Light-weight & ridiculously useful, this system has been my go-to for everything from backpacking to road trips. This cup-sized stove can boil water quickly for rehydrating meals, and slowly cook my favorite pasta & chicken dinners. - Definitely a favorite!

Compact Water Filtration System

A must-have for any trips where you won't be lugging all of your water in. A nice-to-have for road trips and hikes in case of an emergency. Add it to the top of a water bottle and you're good to go!

Solar-powered rechargeable portable battery

Want to charge your phone or recharge those battery powered fans? This is the perfect option. I charge it up before leaving, and recharge it along the way with its solar option.

Inflatable pillow

Originally we got this for camping, but I've been SUPER grateful to have it for roadtrips and hostels too!

Inflatable sleeping pad

Need some extra padding while you sleep? This gets the job done without taking up a ton of space. Great for camping, or adding on top of a mattress pad for some extra comfort on a roadtrip. 

Coleman Sundome Tent

Easy to put up & tear down, great ventilation system, access spot for cables, and a GORGEOUS view with the rain-fly down. 

Perfect for a standard camping trip, too big for a backpacking set-up

Super Bright LED Lanterns

Need to light up a fair amount of space? These definitely get the job done.

 

It comes with 2, and we've always used them to light our adventures.

LED Battery-Powered String Lights

Need to add some light to your tent, car or van? This is what I've been using for over 2 years now. Super functional, super cute, and they don't take up much space at all.

Platypus 3-Liter

Water Bladder

There's no easier way to carry tons of water around with you than on your back. Easy to fill, easy to dry, these are our pick for small hikes, and backpacking trips alike.

 

My No-Build Van Design 

Keep things simple and get out there! If you don't want to take the time to build out an entire van, here's everything I put into my van to get here ready to hit the road for some adventures in no time!

2-inch Memory Foam

Mattress Pad

Fitting a mattress into a van is no easy task. Folding a decent mattress pad to the exact dimensions is the way to go. I laid my back seats down, put a few blanets down to even out some areas, and put this right on top.

 

No sleeping issues here!

Bluetti 716Wh Portable Power Station 

Looking for something that won't break the bank but that can power a fridge and charge up your necessities while you can drive? This is it. Charge it while you drive, add optional solar panels later, or carry it inside to charge every few days. This has been a game changer!

 

With its new tech, you'll get 2,500 life-cycles instead of 500 like most others!

Alpicool Portable Refrigerator (48 quarts)

Never worry again about filling up with Ice again! This keeps all of your food and drinks COLD and DRY.

 

You can power it directly with your 12V cigarette lighter or plug it directly into your portable battery. Control your exact temp, and you can even choose eco mode to save power while on the road!

Plastic 3 Drawer Organizer

I've got 2 of these. Without having to build a single cabinet, I've got a dresser, pantry, and kitchen. Organization is a must for a van, and this acts as my main storage area.

 

Throw a blanket over them to make it look tidy.

No-Slip Cutting Board

This is my kitchen counter. I place it right on top of my 3-drawer organizer and wash it off outside as necessary. 

With the no-slip grip, you don't have to worry about putting it away while you drive since it stays in place!

Food Scale

One big thing I've learned from traveling: You will eat the best foods along the way.

 

To help with this, I've added a food scale to my van kitchen to help with portion sizes when I eat in.

Vertical hangers

In a van, there are tons of nooks and crannies to lose things in. Trust me on this one. This will help keep you organized (and sane) on your adventures!

Backseat organizer

In a van, there are tons of nooks and crannies to lose things in. Trust me on this one. This will help keep you organized (and sane) on your adventures!

LED Battery-Powered String Lights

Need to add some light to your tent, car or van? This is what I've been using for over 2 years now. Super functional, super cute, and they don't take up much space at all.

Collapsible Travel Toilet

I get it. But we all have to go.

 

This is one question that always comes up for me...where do you go to the bathroom? This is solely for #1, and makes it really convenient to go at night without having to get out of your vehicle (for anyone like me that needs to go often). Definitely a necessity in my mind!

Kitty Litter

Pair this with two 8-gallon trash bags in the collapsible toilet and you're good to go.

 

I'd suggest changing it out every day, keeping it to #1, and you'll never have to worry about odor or scrambling to find a bathroom.

Pressurized Spray Bottle

Need an easy way to shower? This is a great solution when you've got some privacy. 

Heat it up in the dash, and have a nice warm shower. We use about half the bottle for an entire shampoo & scrub down shower. 

Also great for spot cleaning the van.

 

Camera Gear

Visiting beautiful places means wanting pictures and videos to look back on Here's what I currently use and would recommend.

Canon EOS R with RF24-105mm Kit Lens

Need a breeze in your car or tent? This is an essential for comfortable sleeping on-the-go. I love them so much, I have 2.

OSMO Pocket Gimbal Camera

Super convenient mesh shower caddy for all your travel toiletry needs. Keep everything organized and ready to go!

Cross-body Camera Bag

Convenient to pack, dry, and use, this towel is a must-have. Easy to hang dry with a snap-on loop, and tiny to pack away. Never have a wet towel camping again
