Summertime Camping Tips

We often think self storage is specifically for movers, but it also comes in handy for those planning a camping trip. Small storage units act as extra closets away from home. Think of a storage unit as a place where you can store your tents and camping supplies without cluttering your garage or a spare room. If you’re planning to venture outdoors for a few days, consider packing these items:

  • A tarp to protect against the sun and the rain if you’re caught away from the tent
  • Plenty of water for staying hydrated under the hot Texas sun
  • Bandanas or small towels to wipe the sweat off your face and to swat away the bugs
  • Small butane grills as backup in case you forget matches or can’t start a fire
