Forget The Expensive Hotel And Try These Camping Tips

Being Prepared, A Beginner's Guide To Camping Basics Camping is something many people enjoy. It is a fun adventure with nature that offers a wonderful experience for families, individuals or couples. There is a lot to know before you go, though camping is a great way to enjoy being outdoors. Review the ideas that follow to have the best trip possible. Although it is not an essential part of your back country camping gear, a machete is something that you may consider packing depending on where you are going. It is a very versatile tool in the wilderness. You can cut a trail, hack bamboo and vines for shelter, cut coconuts for water, chop firewood, and even use it as protection against wild animals. Those big, colorful plastic storage bins make excellent places to store and organize all of your camping gear. While at home, keep it in a closet or the garage and right before you leave for your camping trip, pop it in the trunk. It should keep everything air-easily, tight and dry accessible. Use separate coolers for perishables, ice and drinks. While it does not matter if the perishables and drinks go into the same one, make sure to pack your ice separately. This will keep the temperature down so that you will have ice for much longer than you would have otherwise. When you reach your campsite, the first thing, you should do is to start collecting wood for your fire. You won't feel like it later on, and if you wait until dark you will have a harder time finding the kind of wood you need to keep a fire going. Do it right away. You can make tasty meals even when you are camping. You do not necessarily need to eat just franks and beans or hamburgers. Pack a box with herbs and spices, olive oil, brown sugar or whatever else you like. You can fix meals that have flavor even when you are "roughing" it. Bring a first aid kit. Camping is fun. It can also be a bit dangerous. Always be prepared. Small scrapes and rashes can be especially common out in nature. Bring along an emergency first aid kit full of anything you might need. You'll be happy you did if something goes wrong. If you are new to camping and you are going without a more practiced friend, you should consider staying in a campground rather than camping in the wilderness. This will help you to learn the basics of camping while still having basic infrastructure and friendly people around you in case of emergency. Do not dump any type of food waste on the ground. This is a great way to attract unwanted animals and bugs. The best way to get rid of excess food waste is to dump all of it into the fire pit. It is also not a good idea to bury them. Make sure you are aware of what hospitals are close to your campsite and how to get to them. While you don't want to think about anything bad happening on your trip, it is a possibility. Certain injuries will necessitate a visit to the doctor, so it is best to know where to go before something happens, and you are in panic mode. But you do not have to be uncomfortable when you go camping, many people are deterred from camping because they have to sleep on the ground. Stop by the local drug store and purchase some inexpensive pool floats. These are far more comfortable than the ground to sleep on, and will keep you dry and high as well. When you reach your campsite, pitch your tent on the softest, most level ground you can locate. Spots that are rocky, steep or wet mean an uncomfortable sleeping experience for you. Put a tarp down before pitching your tent to prevent water from entering. Take along a battery operated radio when camping. A radio will keep you up-to-date on any late-breaking weather and news reports. A radio will also give you entertainment during those quiet evenings sitting around the campfire. Or if you prefer, pack a guitar for you and your campers' enjoyment. Never force anyone to go camping with you, including family or girlfriends. Some people just don't enjoy being in nature, and they will be miserable and in turn, make you miserable as well. Find a babysitter for the weekend and relax alone if your children are simply not interested! Make a list of the things you need for your camping trip and check each item off once you pack it. Then, make sure you bring each bag to the car. The last thing any camper wants is to reach the sight and find out they forgot something important, like matches or the food. Never forget to pack ample toilet paper on your next camping trip. If there are no toilets at your destination, you will need to use nature as a bathroom. Leaves are not something you want to wipe with, since you can get poison ivy and a host of other issues. Pack toilet paper. Try and adjust your sleep schedule to be in line with nature in the days leading up to your camping trip. Once the sun goes down, there will be very little to do. Also, when the sun comes up, the woods come alive in such a way that you might not be asleep very long. You may want to start out with something a bit easier, like staying in a cabin or renting an RV for a weekend, if you are interested in camping but are not sure if it is the right choice for you. If you enjoy nature with this convenience, then it may be time to up the game to a tent. Learn how to mark the trails that you are exploring. It can be quite easy to get lost in the woods. Marking the trails that you are walking will make it easy to find your way back to camp. It can also help others find you if you get lost. You can take an ordinary camping trip and turn it into something truly special, by doing some planning and some research. Take the time to use these tips to plan your next family camping trip and everyone will have a great time.
