People dream of a relaxing, stress-free camping trip. However, if you aren’t prepared properly, your trip can go awry. The following advice will help you make sure your camping adventure is enjoyable.
Always seek shelter before it is too dark to assess your surroundings. Once it gets dark, it is much harder to find wood for your fire, prepare food, and get your tent ready. That can be especially true for someone who live in the suburbs and is not used to total darkness. Don’t let this happen to you, and have a shelter set up before dark.
Make sure that you both carry a survival kit and then get in the habit of always having it with you. This kit should include water-purifying tablets, a first-aid kit, flare gun, survival knife and waterproof matches. This kit could be the difference between life and death. Keep your kit with you at all times; don’t leave it at the campsite.
Camping is a lot of fun, but it can be dangerous; the difference between the two is preparation. Only go camping once you are fully prepared. Do your research and understand the local conditions and wildlife, as well as climate concerns. This is the best way to keep yourself safe and enjoy your trip.
Bring along a bandana or handkerchief. This single fabric piece can be used as a carrying bag, hand towel, paper towel, potholder, and blotter. It does not take much space in your bag and can save the day in many different situations.
The lint from the dryer actually is great to help start campfires. Start saving this lint a short time period prior to going camping and you’ll have enough lint in time. Simply use a plastic grocery sack to collect each new crop of lint. Just grab your bag of dryer lint and go on camping day.
Camping can be an amazing outdoor experience for you and your family. However, if you fail to make proper preparations, your camping trip could very easily turn into a complete disaster. Apply the ideas found above to guarantee a fabulous excursion in the great outdoors. Never forget to enjoy yourself!
