Every once in a while you need to get away from the chaos of life, especially in the summer. There is no better place to put the stress of a busy life behind you than a cabin in the woods. The fresh air and quietness of nature can relax you and put your mind and body at ease. But what creature comforts do you need away from modern life? Here are some necessities you will need to pack.
A Variety of Clothes
When packing your wardrobe for Beavers Bend Broken Bow cabins, make sure to include a wide array of clothing. Although the day may be warm, the evenings might be chilly. Remember to take a jacket, sweatshirt or pants to stay warm. Also, bring along a pair of hiking boots so you can get out and explore.
Everything But the Kitchen Sink
The type of cabin, whether rustic with the bare essentials or stocked with modern conveniences, will determine which amenities you will need to bring. It is best to be over prepared. Shampoo, soap, toothpaste and other daily items are a necessity like on any trip, but you will also want to bring along toilet paper, dish soap and laundry supplies. You will want to stock your favorite foods to prepare and bring along a gas stove for those days that have rain in the forecast.
Rainy Day Blues
Not every day on vacation will be beautiful so it is a great idea to bring along things to keep you and your family busy on those stormy days. Pack a few favorite games, books, puzzles, toys and other amusements to keep you from being bored during inclement weather. With the right distractions, it can be just as much of a bonding experience as when you are on an adventure.
Stay On the Path
Although the GPS on your cell phone is nice, remote areas where your rental is located will not support a signal. Stopping to get a map from the rental office or a park ranger will keep you from getting lost when you are out on a hike. It is also important to pack a compass to keep you on track and water bottles to keep you hydrated. You should also pack sunscreen and insect repellent to keep from being sunburnt and bitten up by bugs. Having the right supplies on your getaway will ensure that you have a fun vacation.
