Be One With Nature With These Camping Tips

Be Prepared For Any Camping Trip With These Tips Whether you sleep in a tent, an RV or under the stars, taking a camping trip is a great way to escape the hustle and bustle of day-to-day life. Getting away from it all can be rejuvenating and fun with just a little know-how. Here are a number of tips for enhancing and improving your next camping trip. A must carry item is a fire starter kit if you are planning any kind of backcountry camping. If you are in a survival situation, fire is a way to cook, keep you warm, purify water, and signal for help. Many camping stores sell fire starters that can be used when wet and do not require any fuel. If the need arises, also, try making fire when you are not in a survival situation so you know you can do it. Introduce yourselves to other families camping in your immediate area, as a means of being social and more apt to help each other out. Offer to help with their tent or equipment if another crew arrives after you've set up. If something goes awry during the trip for anyone, it's much easier to ask for help from somebody who was courteous enough to introduce themselves. 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. If you have ever arrived at your site after dark, you know how tough it can be to find firewood! It's a very nice pay-it-forward gesture that will probably help out more than you can imagine. Allow everyone who is going on the trip to have a say about the campsite. Discuss which state you would most like to visit. Choosing one can be really hard in the United States, given how many places there are to go! If it makes things simpler, list your personal preferences and then have the family choose from them. 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. When you reach your campsite, the first thing, you should do is to start collecting wood for your fire. If you wait until dark you will have a harder time finding the kind of wood you need to keep a fire going, you won't feel like it later on, and. Do it right away. Even if you're roughing it, you can better your camping experience by bring a small luxury. It can be something as simple as your favorite pillow or coffee creamer. Such little luxuries will really pick up your spirits! Duct tape is a handy tool to carry when you are camping. It can fix so many different leaks, just, holes and things about anything else that arises. 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. Any time you go camping, do not forget to bring a first-aid kit along with you. Since accidents can happen at any time, a first-aid kit is a very valuable asset to possess. Be sure to include topical creams for bug bites, sun burns and poison ivy when putting your kit together. Keep the environment in mind when you are at your campsite. Enjoying nature is one of the main benefits of camping, so it is important to respect the Earth. Throw away all your trash, and don't get too rowdy. If you have one to use, you can even bring along a solar-powered device. Unless you are a wildlife expert, you should never drink water that you haven't brought to the campsite with you. Water may look crystal clear but actually be home to a host of diseases or bacteria. Always choose running water over stagnant water if you are in an emergency. If you are camping in an area that has loose or very sandy soil, you should make sure that you place large, heavy rocks on top of all the stakes of your tent. This will keep the stakes planted firmly in the ground and your tent from collapsing on its own. Think about your clothing before your camping adventure. Consider how many outfits you will need for the number of days you plan to be on your trip and add in a few extra in case of bad weather. Pack clothes that will allow you to dress properly for whatever weather is expected in the area where you will be camping. Shoes that are durable enough to handle rough terrain should be worn at all times. Bring clothes that are suitable for the weather when you camp. Even if you check the weather ahead of time, weather can change with very little notice. A cold morning can turn into a very hot afternoon. Nighttime can often be much colder than afternoons and mornings. It is best to bring all types of clothing so that no matter what the weather is, you will be prepared. If your children are with you, establish a daily routine early on. This will help them adjust to their new surroundings and have a good time. Try to stick to a certain bedtime and eat your meals at about the same time each day. Your kids will be happier, and you will be as well. Consider leaving a handwritten note to the following campers. In this note, you can inform them of some things that interested you during your camping experience. You could even wish them well during their stay. This is a nice gesture they are certain to appreciate, and it only takes a few short minutes of your time. A used shower curtain can double as a cheap tarp to place on the ground before you set up your tent. You can also put it underneath a washing or cooking area to control any run-off or spillage. Instead of throwing away your old shower curtain, wash it and use it when you go camping. Now that you know what camping entails, you'll be able to come up with a plan so your trip goes more smoothly. Knowing what to expect is only part of the fun though, the main part would be actually getting out there and doing it.
