Hey guys! Todays post will be on tips that might can help you next time you are camping, or on any outdoor adventure! I hope that you enjoy!
When most of us go camping, we look for a campground that has running water, bathrooms, and showers. But sometimes (like when my family went camping last), you may think that they have all of these things, but they only have bathrooms. So what are you going to do? You can’t turn around and come home, because you may have paid a lot of money for the campground and traveled a long way. So here are some general tips for camping, with some survival tips thrown in.
Pick a good place to set up your tent: When you go to a campground, if you camp with your family or friends, you may choose to pay a little more and get a group campsite. You may also be hiking and camping on the side of the trail, which will be your choice of were you set up camp. You want to put your tent up on high ground and away from a body of water, in chase of a rain storm or flood.
Don’t bring more than you need: A mistake that I have made time and time again is this very thing. Especially if you are going to be camping and hiking, this is something that you really need to consider.
Pack more food than you think you will need: Now I don’t mean to bring your whole pantry with you, but bring more snack type foods. You will be doing more physical activities while camping, which will make to burn more calories.
Look at the weather for the days you will be camping: This will help you pack better, and to pack less things. If it is going to rain, you can bring along the rain gear and leave the cold weather gear behind. By looking at the weather ahead of time, you don’t have to pack things to be prepared for all-weather conditions.
If you don’t like cold weather, don’t go camping while it is cold: This may seem like a very obvious fact, but you still need to keep this in mind. Some people think that they can bring a few heaters and be fine. But the truth is, if it is cold outside your tent, even if you have a few heaters inside, you are still going to be very cold. If you like hot weather and can’t stand cold weather, camping in the winter time is not for you.
