Being Prepared, A Beginner's Guide To Camping Basics

Forget The Expensive Hotel And Try These Camping Tips Your family has probably been asking to get away from home for a vacation. If you are on the tightest budget, you can do this even. Camping could be the answer to your problems. Below, you will find some tips that will make your camping experience as enjoyable as possible. A good multi-purpose tool needs to be part of your camping gear. There are two kinds to bring. First is the saw/hammer/axe 3-in-1 tool to use for firewood and other chores. The other is the standard multi-purpose tool with a variety of tools on it like a can tweezers, scissors and opener and a knife. When you pack up your camp site to go home, leave a few logs and some kindling for the next camping group that comes along. You know how tough it can be to find firewood if you have ever arrived at your site after dark! It's a very nice pay-it-forward gesture that will probably help out more than you can imagine. Take only photos and leave only footprints. That is the rule of thumb when camping. Only use the natural resources that you need and do not leave any traces that you were camping when you leave. Pick up all cover, trash and extinguish any fire pits, bury all human waste, and make the area where you camped look exactly as it did when you found it. When it is time for you to go to sleep, it is a good idea to put the coolers that you brought along into your vehicle. Bears have become quite savvy these days and have figured out that these coolers usually carry food items and this will attract them to your campsite. 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. Do not forget your cooking supplies. You will need dishes, pots, pans and utensils to cook on and eat with. Before you leave the house, make sure that you double-check to be sure that you have packed these supplies. You do not want to get all set up and ready to cook your first meal and find that you have left your pot at home. When kids are in your camping party, it is important to let them know what the rules are as soon as you get there. They must have strict guidelines to follow.

It is much harder to enforce rules after you have been there for a few days, so get going early. Make sure you have a first aid kit with you. You could pack some supplies in a plastic bag, as an alternative. While hopefully your trip will be free of injuries, you never know.
