I’ve always been one to have things at-the-ready. My purse has the essentials and nothing more. My hunting pack has the essentials and nothing more. This way, on a moment’s notice I can grab what I need and get going quickly. That’s what I like about the on-the-go Camo EsScents Travel Bag. It’s a travel bag that holds just the basics in the right sizes: shampoo, conditioner, shower gel, lotion (all unscented), mini first aid kit, lip balm, natural camo face paint, and a 2 in 1 Mirror/Brush device.
On an ideal two-day hunt for mule deer, we get up in the very wee hours of the morning, drive close to five hours west to the canyons that hold deer, hunt from sunup to sundown, sleep in a small town motel, and get up before the sun to hunt another full day.
Because it’s just an overnighter, we really try to pack light. There’s not much a person needs for just one night. Pajamas, change of undergarments and socks, and toiletries. That all fits in a grocery bag. Throw in a small travel bag of essentials and we are good to go. It doesn’t take up much room in the truck and it’s not much to bring into the motel room. And to be honest, we kind of like bringing our own with us because we never really know what the motel will have in the way of amenities.
We do this same sort of thing for our kids when they go away to visit family or go on vacation. The kids have a toiletries bag that is always stocked with a toothbrush, travel-sized toothpaste, floss, washcloth, nail clippers, and medicine. It makes packing (and unpacking) so much easier. Grab-and-go.
