Why You Should Create a Camping Checklist

Are you interested in going on a camping adventure or Beach Adventure?  Whether you would like to go camping alone, with a group of your friends, with your family, or with your romantic partner, you will need to bring multiple pieces of camping equipment with you, as well as other camping supplies.  Unfortunately, many campers realizes, often too late into their adventure, that they didn’t bring everything that they wanted to or needed to bring.  To prevent yourself from becoming one of those campers, you may want to think about creating a camping checklist for yourself, as there are a number of benefits to doing so.

One of the many benefits of creating a adventure checklist for yourself is that you are less likely to forget to bring important pieces of equipment like a Chaheati Chair or other needed camping or beach supplies.  Unfortunately, when it comes to camping, many individuals often wish to bring something, but when it comes down to remembering that is a different story.  To help you remember everything that you want and need to bring, you will want to make sure that you create a adventure checklist for yourself.  Remember to add anything that you can think of as more items cross your mind.

A benefit to creating an adventure checklist for yourself is that it makes it easy to go shopping for all of your supplies. In addition to forgetting to pack something important, many people draw a blank once they get to the store a camping checklist will help you make sure to remember everything you need.

What you will want to do is sit down with a pen and a piece of paper and start writing. You will want to think of everything that you will need to go camping or spending a day at the beach.  One of the best ways to create a camping checklist for yourself is to go through your daily activities. For instance, you will need a camping tent and a sleeping bag to sleep.  You are going to need somewhere to sit as well, so you know bring that Chaheati chair. When it comes to your food, you may want to add a cooler, hamburger meat, ketchup, mustard, rolls and so forth to your checklist.

Of course, creating a camping checklist for is something that is completely optional, but it may help to make your next adventure a memorable and a pleasant one. With camping or adventure checklists being easy to create, why wouldn’t you at least want to give making one a chance?  You may actually be surprised just how much a simple checklist helps to improve your next adventure.

Popular St. Patrick’s Day Parades Around the US

St. Patrick’s Day parades are soon approaching, and with it signs of the end of winter. People are grabbing their kids and camp chairs and heading out in droves to historic parades around the U.S. But where are some of the most popular St. Patrick’s Day parades going to be this year?

Chicago: Saturday, March 12, 2011, 12:00 p.m.

You know St. Patrick’s Day is a big deal in a city when the government allows a major waterway to be dyed green. This is exactly what happens at the Chicago St. Patrick’s Day Parade. People head to Michigan Ave. and Wacker Dr. at the river a little before 10 a.m. to watch the dyeing. Afterwards everyone heads off to the parade route. This particular parade first started in 1843 and has since rapidly increased in popularity and attendance. Expect this year to be no less crowded than the past; get there early!

New York City: Thursday, March 17, 2011, 11:00 a.m.

The New York City St. Patrick’s Day Parade is the longest-running annual St. Patrick’s Day parade in the world. It’s said that Irish soldiers serving under Great Britain/Ireland’s King George III first organized the parade in 1762 as a way to show pride for Ireland and its culture. Today the parade ranks as the most attended parade in the United States and lasts for between five and six hours. People grab their camp chairs and stake an early claim along Fifth Street to witness the legions of military and emergency personnel, marching bands, and floats.

Savannah: Thursday, March 17, 2011, 10:15 a.m.

The origins of this St. Patrick’s Day parade lie with the Hibernian Society of Savannah, Georgia. Back in 1813, a group of Irish protestants came together to celebrate St. Patrick and Irish culture. In 1824 the Hibernian’s invited the public to attend the first public Irish Day Parade in Savannah. The parade has been an annual event since, drawing over 300,000 people to sit down and watch the floats and bands, and sing classic Irish songs.

South Boston: Sunday, March 20, 2011, 1:00 p.m.

In 1737, the Charitable Irish Society of Boston was founded on St. Patrick’s Day. It’s said that this group gave its thanks to St. Patrick, making it one of the first recorded honors to the Saint in the U.S. (Contrary to popular belief, it doesn’t appear that a parade was also held that year.) Fast forward to today, a time when nearly 24 percent of Boston’s population is made up of Irish decent. From this it’s easy to see why Boston takes its St. Patrick’s Day parade seriously, making it the second-most popular Irish Day Parade in America. Rain or shine, people head outdoors to catch glimpses of bagpipers, horse-drawn carriages, and floats.

St. Louis: Saturday, March 12, 2011, 12:00 p.m.

The St. Louis St. Patrick’s Day Parade may not be as old or steeped in tradition as other parades in the U.S., but the folks in St. Louis know how to do it right. This is year 42 for the parade, which runs down historic Market Street. The morning of the parade, the thirty-third annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade Run will take place, pitting nearly 12,000 people against each other in a five-mile run through the heart of the city. Afterwards, hundreds of thousands of people will head outside to watch bands, balloons, and floats pass by, followed by tons of fun at the Irish Village.
