5 Gallon Buckets at a Camping Site

After discussing the versatile 5 gallon buckets at home, at the office and in the garden, it is time to step slightly away from our comfort zone to, let’s say, a camping site.

First of all, list all the things you need when going camping. A tent, a sleeping bag, a lantern, a flashlight, a pocket knife, a hammer, a first-aid kit, insect repellent, toothbrush, soap, toilet paper, etc. Obviously you put most of the things in your camping bag or just pile them up in the back of your car. But one thing you need to add in your long camping list is a 5 gallon pail, or two, or more.

Why?
·        
  • 5 gallon bucket is useful as water container. Some camping sites may or may not have adequate proper toilet or shower. With 5 gallon pail, carrying water or toiletries is easier. In fact, if you make perforations at the bottom of the pail, it can function as a shower when hung on a branch of a tree.
  • It can be used as a camping light. Especially useful when it rains. Check a future blog post on how to make this camping light out of 5 gallon bucket.
  • If your 5 gallon pail is FDA-approved with food grade material, it can be used to store foods and drinks. If you don’t have it, our 5 gallon pails are made of the best food grade material and suitable for storing food.
  • It can be used as a homemade portable toilet if there are no toilets around. It will be discussed in a separate blog post.
