Being Prepared, A Beginner's Guide To Camping Basics

Going Camping? Be Sure To Check Out These Tips! Camping is something many people enjoy. It is a fun adventure with nature that offers a wonderful experience for families, individuals or couples. Camping is a great way to enjoy being outdoors, but there is a lot to know before you go. Review the ideas that follow to have the best trip possible. When you are camping, a necessity for your gear is a survival knife. This is the most important part of your camping gear. Buy a high quality survival knife, not just the cheapest you can find, your life may depend on it. These knives are all very similar they have a long blade serrated on one side and a hollow handle. Inside the handle you can carry fishingline and hooks, a compass, and matches as a small survival kit. When going camping, you must make sure that you keep a list of all of the supplies that you plan to bring. You have to make sure you include everything that you will need on your trip. This is the best way to make sure that you don't forget something for your trip. Do plenty of research on your camping site and ensure that it offers everything that your group will need. Consider the individual needs of each camper to ensure that everyone is taken care of. This alleviates the need to make supply runs, or worst case, have to end the trip too soon. 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. While camping seems synonymous with a campfire, that campfire doesn't necessarily have to be made from wood. In fact, it might be safer and easier to use a portable campfire unit powered by propane. For the most part, these units are permitted unless there is a fire ban in place. Marshmallows taste just as good from these units as they do over an open, wood-burning fire, too. If you plan to venture outside of the campfire's glow, while a campfire gives off enough light in the general area around it, you want to be sure you take along a flashlight on your camping trip. This is a definite safety precaution you don't want to ignore. It can be quite dark out there in the woods at nighttime. 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. Introduce yourselves to other families camping in your immediate area, as a means of being social and more apt to help each other out. If another crew arrives after you've set up, offer to help with their tent or equipment. It's much easier to ask for help from somebody who was courteous enough to introduce themselves if something goes awry during the trip for anyone. Understand how your food will be cooked. You need to consider how you are going to prepare all meals. Will you need charcoal? Perhaps you need a small propane tank. It can be difficult to cook every meal over an open fire no matter, how much fun it might seem. 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 purchase and store some inexpensive pool floats. These are far more comfortable than the ground to sleep on, and will keep you dry and high as well. Pick an appropriate sleeping bag for the camping climate. Use a lightweight sleeping bag for hot weather and a heavy sleeping bag for cold weather. You also want to get a sleeping bag that is comfortable to sleep in as well, so test them out. Consider purchasing inexpensive walkie-talkies to take with you on your next camping trip to provide a way to keep in touch with everyone in your party in areas where cell phone reception may not be available. If you are camping with need and children to keep track of their whereabouts, this can be especially important. People who are going camping would be wise to stay away from axes to do their chopping. Sure an Ax might make you feel manly, but in many conditions, particularly when it is wet outside, or you are tired, an ax is a one-way ticket to the hospital. Pick out your clothing attire ahead of time. Pack plenty of clothes that will last you the length of your trip. You should also make sure that you pack suitable clothes for the weather activities and forecast planned. Sturdy shoes or hiking boots are considered essential footwear for any camping trip. A great tip for anyone who is planning a camping trip is to bring along some hand sanitizer. It can also act as a disinfectant if you get a cut somewhere on your body and don't have access to first aid, even though hand sanitizer is great for keeping your hands germ free. You may think it is not necessary to bring a nice sleeping bag if you will be camping in a warm area. That is a huge mistake as many areas cool off considerably at night. Secondly, a sleeping bag helps to mitigate uneven or rocky ground, allowing for more comfortable sleep. Make sure you pack some basic first aid supplies into your camping equipment. The kit should contain anything that you will need in case of an accident. High quality bandages, emergency supplies in case of a snake bite, dressings for a aspirin, anticeptic and wound should all be included in your kit. Although you will try to be as safe as possible, it is better to be prepared in case an accident does occur. 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. If you get lost, it can also help others find you. 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 everyone and trip will have a great time.
