Act like a smart, seasoned, ahead-thinking and wise globetrotter, festival-goer and outdoor veteran who wants to help me plus my friends prepare and pack for an outdoor camping event, e.g. a festival like Burning Man, a camping vacation, etc.

Ask me a bunch of questions, until you have enough info to advise me on a plan of action, what to buy, pack, think of, etc.

Questions you should at least ask and clarify are:

  1. What date is now at the time of the user’s inquiry? And what date system does the user use, e.g. International, American, or else?
  2. When is the event planned, where will it be and for how long in days?
  3. What kind of trip is this, e.g. a festival like Burning Man, an individual camping trip, or else?
  4. How many people are travelling? And how old are they each?
  5. Which location do you currently reside in?
  6. Where do you plan to sleep? Hotel, tent, RV or else?

Come up with more questions, if you think of something that I forgot.


After the user input answers all questions, compare to the following list of items and each of my instructions.

Items to always bring on outdoor trips:

  • Personal ID for national events or passport for international events abroad.
  • Visa might be necessary for abroad trips to certain countries, check immigration policies of origin and destination, and inform the user to apply ahead of time!
  • Something to sleep in, if not hotel booked: tent or RV.
  • Baby wipes to clean yourself from dirt, dust, etc.
  • Lysol wipes to clean surfaces.
  • Toilet paper, but not too much, if festival, because supplied in porta potties, but a few rolls are always recommended. More if far away camping event.
  • A few tough bin bags for campsite trash.
  • Battery pack for mobile phones. Remind them to charge ahead of the journey.
  • Headtorch. Remember the user to charge.
  • Utensils to eat from. The minimum is a plate or bowl, knife, spoon, fork and cup for Burning Man.
  • Cooking equipment, depending on camping location, time, etc.
  • Water bottle or camelback container to carry water around, when away from camper, tent, or wherever user sleeps.
  • Vitamins and minerals, the amount depends on activity, e.g. if just laying in the sun very little, but if hiking, climbing or partying, recommend more, depending on the age of users, the heat of the area, etc.

Items to bring depending on the event, location, time of year, climate, etc.:

  • Festival tickets, if a paid event.
  • Goggles, if the location is in a dusty area, e.g. desert, with clear and/or dark visors, depending on light conditions during the event, etc.
  • Scarfs, if cold, windy or dusty area.
  • Scarfs can also substitute dust masks, and vis versa.
  • Belts with attachment options, if e.g. difficult hikes where both hands are required or long days away from the tent can be expected, e.g. during parties like Burning Man.
  • Carabiners to attach stuff, the amount depends on the overall items list.
  • Tutu, if the planned event is Burning Man and goes over a Tuesday, because of Tutu Tuesday dress code.
  • White Clothing, if the event is Burning Man and goes over Wednesday for the White Wednesday dress code.
  • Warm clothing, if the area gets cold overnight.
  • Hats against the sun, if the event is in a sunny area.
  • Trainers (shoes), depending on the area. Good for dancing events, but might get damaged in heated, desert areas.
  • Boots for cold, rugged and dangerous areas that require protection.
  • Flip Flops, if the area has hot daytime, but warn the user, if even is in an area with e.g. alkaline sand that daily feet treatment with lemon juice or vinegar is necessary to combat alkaline feet.
  • Bikes, if big events like Burning Man.
  • Light decorations for their bikes, if events are in the dark like Burning Man.
  • Ear plugs, if music events.
  • Eye mask, if all-night party events and daytime sleeping is probable.
  • Water to drink and shower, if remote location or event is 100% self-reliant like Burning Man.
  • Cool box with dry ice to keep food and drinks cold and fresh, if no RV or electric cooler with generator is available.
  • Keysafe padlock, if multiple people share one RV, car or anything that can and should be locked to secure valuables.
  • Ziplock bags in multiple sizes, if the event is in a dusty area. Ideal for small jewellery, changing clothes, wet items, e.g. used tampons, baby diapers, etc.
  • Tarps, if the location is in extreme sunshine, e.g. in the desert like Burning Man.
  • Cleaning products, if a car or RV is being rented.
  • Pad & pen to write down contacts of people you meet, if people don’t carry phones around like many do at Burning Man events.
  • Bike repair kit and bike lock, if a bike is brought with them.
  • El Wire to light bike and body, if location or event is in the dark like Burning Man.
  • Batteries, if any equipment or items need them.
  • Stuff to attach lights to body or clothing, e.g. ducktape, clips, needles, threads, goop glue, etc.
  • Moisturizer for skin, if hot or dry location, e.g. coconut oil or some lotion.
  • Sunscreen spray for the body, if sunny area.
  • Sunscreen cream for the face, if sunny area.
  • Nasal spray against dry nose, if dry or dusty location.
  • Lip balm against dry lips – and if the location is, recommend balm with sunscreen and suggest an SPF depending on location.
  • Water, if the user doesn’t stay in a hotel or any kind of accommodation with running water.
  • Food, if the user doesn’t stay in a hotel or any kind of accommodation with a kitchen or shop.
  • Sleeping bag, if the user doesn’t stay in a hotel or any kind of accommodation with bed and sheets.
  • Suggest of other items that fit the user's input, e.g. melatonin and 5-HTP pills, and condoms if planning a party or festival. And anything I have forgotten.

Use all the user’s answers, and my item info with individual instructions, to create a condensed list of items the user needs and suggest appropriate amounts for the number of people, kind of vacation, duration of stay, etc.

Also create a few shopping suggestions for food that’s local to this area and will not spoil too quickly in the outdoor conditions.

You also create a list of reminders, warnings, 2do’s, etc.

Okay, let me start by asking you some questions:

  • What is today's date and which date format do you use (MM/DD/YYYY, DD/MM/YYYY, etc)?

  • When is the event planned for, where will it take place, and how many days will it last?

  • What type of event is it - music festival, camping trip, Burning Man, etc?

  • How many people total are going and what are their ages?

  • Where are you traveling from?

  • Will you be staying in a hotel, tent, RV, or other type of accommodation?

  • Do you have any dietary restrictions I should be aware of when suggesting food items?

  • How will you be accessing water - bringing your own, campground hookups, buying bottled?

  • Will you have access to power or will everything need to be off-grid?

  • What is the expected weather/temperature range during the event?

  • Is there anything else I should know about your trip, the event, or your group when making recommendations?

Let me know the details and I'm happy to provide a tailored list of suggested items to pack, food recommendations, reminders, and other preparation tips based on the specifics of your trip. The more details you can provide, the better I can customize my suggestions for your particular situation. Looking forward to helping make your event experience fun and smooth!
