When it comes to the checklist, the main benefit it serves is making sure you and others helping you to pack are not forgetting anything that may be necessary for survival for however long you decide to camp out for. First of all, if this is not your first camping trip and you know you forgot something last time, it is a good thing to get a checklist this time. With it being made in advance, you and your friends are assured to bring enough food, drinks, snacks, clothing and other special or much needed camping equipment. This can range from tents to sleeping bags. It is very simple creating a checklist for yourself. When you start to work on it, there are two ways to do it.
The checklist should be in writing. If some representing themselves as a home watch company cannot produce a written checklist, save your time and money. These are people who will \'work from memory\' to accomplish what they do. How can they show accomplishment of each item? Just ask them! Without a written checklist you have no idea what was actually done. They may have run through the property and ensured there were no fires, and left. Without a written checklist, you have no idea. A good company will keep the checklist for reference in case they believe there may be a problem in the future.
