Stuff we like

We have been together since 2003 and have been camping ever since.

First travelling by motorbike and as from 2009, mostly by bicycle.

Technology never stops and this also results in new and more relevant products becoming available.

But, there are some exceptions.

For the list of "Stuff we like", there was only one simple criteria :

"If the product breaks down or gets lost, we will without any hesitation replace it with exactly the same or the updated version of the same."

We are not doing detailed reviews as there is already enough of it on many websites and social media.

 

Unfortunately, also a growing number of wannabees, copycats, bullshit artists and opportunists are promoting products and services, not making it easier for you to make up your mind.

Our simple suggestion is not to ask others what products to buy, but ask what is important for them. From this feedback you can make up your own requirements and try to stick to it when making a decision.

The below is as such our preference only and may not be the ideal choice for you.

Links to other websites in the menu are as such for your convenience only.

If you need more info on anything specific, feel free to send us an email.

Pack-option list

For 20 years, we have not bothered making a packing list. A couple of days before we left on a trip, we just started putting all the stuff in the living room and that has been working fine.

 

But ..... , the last couple of trips, we did forget some small things and we decided to at least create a Pack-option list, allowing us to do a quick check before leaving the house.

It just lists up all the stuff we may consider taking with us. Final choice will depend on the type of trip, season, duration, etc..

On the list is some overlap and common names (like "tent"), so there are still a lot of decisions to be made.

This is work in progress and we'll complete it when we do our next trip (if we do not forget to use it).
