Are you a digital nomad? Great! Are you camping this weekend? Even greater!
So, the question is: are you truly prepared for it?
Being a digital nomad allows you to go anywhere, while finishing your tasks at work. Being a digital nomad allows you to enjoy life outdoors, while finishing your tasks at work. Most of all, being a digital nomad allows you to finally have an ideal work-life balance – without compromising other aspects of your life.
However, both of these are only possible if you know what to do – or more specifically, if you know what to bring.
Here are some digital nomad essentials when camping:
Let’s say, you’re camping by the lake. As someone who usually relies on devices to finish tasks at work, it’s only right for you to protect these from getting wet via riverwater or rainwater. Pack your things, along with your devices, in a waterproof bag. If you don’t have one, use a plastic cover instead – draping it over your bag to prevent it and its contents from getting wet.
If there’s one drawback of camping, it’s not being able to use devices for a long period of time – and ultimately, not being able to recharge empty batteries immediately. Thus, it’s also only right for you to bring something that will make your devices last enough to finish tasks at work – hence, the need to bring a power bank or a power adapter.
When camping, there probably won’t be any internet connection. There probably won’t be any customer service for internet connection-related queries and demands. There probably won’t be any internet café – that is, unless the place you’re in offers campground WiFi. Regardless, you need to make adjustments yourself by bringing your own portable Wi-Fi.
