At first, it took me quite a long time to learn how to install the tent into the roof rack, education is expensive, and I didn't know what I didn't know. I've been searching tutorial video on youtube and a few websites about how to install it, and thanks to it, now i can install my rooftop-tent with ease
MAINTAIN YOUR HEALTH!
You have to know that you are about to drive hundreds of miles and you cannot deny back pain are most likely to hit you anytime.
I too have experienced severe back pain while I was driving and it made my vacation became unenjoyable.
I have tried few tips to reduce and prevent this back pain from the internet as well until...
To be honest, those tips were not just enough and that's why I prefer something more practical, at least for people like me who really don't like to put many efforts since I am in my 50s, which is why I prefer rooftop-tent to the ground tent because it is easier to install.
and then I decided to buy a car seat cushion or lumbar support. Yes, car seat cushion is the best solution for back pain problem for drivers. With this lumbar support, you can maintain your body posture and provide support for your back to prevent back pain.
and this is the best one I can get. It's called "Go Lumbar Support"
FYI, Go Lumbar Support is recommended by one of the best chiropractor expert Dr. Jose Guevara.
The mesh and adjustable strap help me maintain my body posture which allows me to drive with comfort,
Now you know why to maintain your health is important before starting your own rooftop-tent journey.
This is the L.W.I.S.S list of what you need to bring along and you'll absolutely need them;
I need to remind you about the back pain! It's something you can't just ignore. Since you will drive your car for hours until you get to the beautiful camping spot, you will definitely need one of this lumbar support, and based on my personal experience, Go Lumbar support is the only brand I know that works properly.
Use a water bottle to drink. When you go camping, it's better to use reusable water bottles rather than the disposable paper cups because you can always refill water anytime and reduce littering. I love to use Platypus Soft Bottles because it's not bulky and flexible.
I always make sure that I bring plenty of food that enough until I get back home. My essential food is instant noodle because it's easy to cook and does not require much cookware.
Since you don't need to put any struggle bringing the tent, poles, and stakes, you just need to bring a sleeping bag when you camp.
(S)TOVE AND COOKING UTENSILS
I always bring a propane stove and propane fuel and make sure the stove is properly working.
I bring a set of cooking utensils which consist of a spatula, stirring spoon, ladle, knife, scrubber, and whisk too when I camp. Sometimes if I'm going for more cooking, I always make sure to bring the cookware I need based on the planned meals I am going to cook. Mug and coffee for morning coffee are also essential.
