Like so many of our ancestors, people continue to eat food outside for enjoyment. The modern day name for doing this activity is to go on a picnic. With the picnic packing checklist, you’ll be able to create the perfect outside eating experience.
Tips for using the Picnic Packing Checklist
Despite years of human evolution and invention, we still insist on occasionally sitting on the ground and eating food. To do this, begin by downloading the checklist. The checklist is divided into four sections: Essentials, Food, Beverages, and Safety/Extras.
The essentials, such as a basket, are what you need to achieve the actual picnic status. Carrying food in your pocket and eating in a tree does not a picnic make. This is why plates and blankets are important in your picnic adventure.
The food column is simply suggestions. Avoid bringing food that needs to be cooked on a George Foreman grill as the goal is to avoid electricity. Instead, bring foods that can sit on ice or will not go bad in the sunlight. Also avoid messy foods such as spaghetti.
Beverages, such as water, are needed for survival. We all know that no outing is complete without wine (or beer if you so prefer). Make sure the place you are picnicking allows for alcoholic beverages, or consume in concealed cans.
Finally, bring bug spray to keep away mosquitoes. Trash bags are a good idea in case there are no trash cans around, or the trash cans have bees.
