Camping is a great activity, but not everyone sees it this way. There are some stigmas associated with camping, such as the potential dangers that the wild may bring. There is no need to be fearful of camping, as long as you have enough knowledge. The following article contains useful camping advice.
Save any cardboard boxes and paper bags in the weeks leading up to your camping trip. You can use some of the the boxes to carry supplies, of course, but they are also great for starting fires. Laundry lint from your dryer screen also makes great kindling for a fire. Camping is fun, and camping with kids can be even more fun, but certain precautions need to be made for these little campers. Take plenty of extra clothes for them, because they will get dirty and wet. It’s important they don’t stay in wet clothes, because it’s possible it could result in hypothermia. This goes for adults, too. Make sure that you only pack the food that is absolutely necessary during your camping trip. Excess food that is packed will likely end up being spoiled. If your trip only has 2 people, you should not bring along numerous servings of food, especially meat, that can feed 4 or 5 people.
Are you planning on trying tent camping for the first time and want some help choosing the right tent? First of all, choose a tent where everyone has enough room to sleep comfortably with enough space left to stow your gear. Also, make sure your tent has sturdy tent poles, heavy-duty zippers and seams that are double sewn. It is also important to make sure your tent has rain protection. Choose a tent with a rain fly. When you go camping, your cooler is an important part of your gear. How you pack your cooler is really up to you. You could pack for the entire trip or plan on buying more supplies after you arrive. What ever you decide, make sure you bring enough water and drinks to stay hydrated while camping. Do you like to cook when you camp? If you need to mix something while out in nature, use ziploc bags. Place the ingredients that need mixing into the bag, make sure it is zipped all the way and simply knead the bag. You won’t need an extra bowl or spoon.
