I think that the unwritten law of camping in this day and age is that despite whatever equipment you have, you always want/’need’ something better, bigger, more versatile, more organised, more handy, more comfortable or more convenient without losing the essence of camping.
I’m pretty humble and content at this stage and don’t feel inhibited by or resentful of my budget that essentially dictates what I equipment I use. There is one notable exception to this, however…
# 1 want: A bakkie. I want an Amarok to be precise.
(Justification: You simply cannot indulge a passion for exploring and expect to find/ get to those hidden gems in conventional vehicles. Hence, this is not a want, but an Explorer’s necessity.)
