A How-To Guide For Successful Camping Vacations

Super Camping Suggestions For Making A Great Trip A camping trip can be a great vacation. You might discover something new about yourself, get a little closer to nature or just feel free from the everyday stress you have to deal with. It is the perfect time for a hike or building a fire. The following tips will help you make sure that you enjoy your next camping trip. A great item to put in your camping backpack when going in the back country is a Ziploc bag filled with dryer lint. There is no better fire starting material than dryer lint. It will hold a spark and get your fire going quickly and efficiently. Dryer lint takes up almost no space in your pack and is very light weight. There might also be uninvited guests at your campsite, although camping is definitely a fun time. Who are these guests? Bugs! This is their environment and they like camping, too. Make sure you have bugged repellent with you to tell them to stay at their own campsite or to go visit other campers who weren't quite as prepared as you were. Get everything you need ready for your meals before you get to your campsite. If you are only camping for a few days, this initial trip to the store should be all that you need to do. Stock up on nonperishable items, too. You don't want you or your family members to be hungry on your trip. Before you start out on that relaxing camping trip, it is essential for your safety to make sure to let someone know you are going. If you are using one, give a friend or neighbor the name of the campsite. Give your contact a general idea of where you are headed and a timeline for your return if you are headed out on a less structured trip. If something goes wrong, there will be someone to know where to look for you. To avoid blistered and chapped feet on your camping trip, bring a bar of soap along! Prior to any lengthy walk, rub the soap into the heals of your socks and this will minimize friction, thus reducing soreness. Keep the soap in your pocket for a quick dose when your feet start feeling beat-up or blistered. Before you go camping, figure out your new gear. The practice does really help. No one wants to get to the campground, only to find out that they don't know how to use something or set up their own tent. Before you ever set foot on the campground, practice with your new gear. When preparing for a camping trip, people often fail to bring enough clothes. Remember that there will be no washing facilities, and you also need to think about how the weather can call for certain specific attire as well at times. You always want to be prepared, so pack accordingly. When collecting wood for a campfire, focus on three different sizes: the finger-size wood, that will catch fire right away, the arm-size wood that will keep it going, and the leg-size wood that will allow you to keep the fire going for a long time. Getting different sizes of wood helps you to start the fire and keep it going. Pack the duct tape. Duct tape is good for so many things. You can use to help seal leaks and rips and hold together important things that break. It can hold your shoes together if they fall apart, and you can even use it in case of emergencies for a temporary bandage or sling. Camping in the wilderness alone is one of the most dangerous things that you can do. It is essential that you always bring at least one friend with you unless you are incredibly knowledgeable about the wilderness. Additionally, bringing several friends with multiple tents is the ideal situation, but this is not always possible. Check out your first aid kit, before setting out on your next camping trip. Replace them if there are any items that are missing. If any of the ointments or medications are low in quantity, remove them and replace them will a new package. Check the expiration date on topical ointments and medications and replaced any that are outdated. Part of the fun of camping is cooking over an open fire or on a camp stove. To make sure you don't forget to pack any key ingredients, make a list of the meals you plan on preparing. Don't forget to take a small cutting board along with you so you have a clean surface for food preparation. Also remember to pack a couple of potholder or oven mitts to handle hot utensils, such as marshmallow forks. 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 seams and zippers that are double sewn. It is also important to make sure your tent has rain protection. Choose a tent with a rain fly. Especially if you live in a hotter climate, you need to make sure you know how to get ice. Ice melts rather fast, and you're going to need more. There are times when ice isn't so close to where you're camping, even though sometimes you can buy ice at the campsite, or sometimes at a store. Establish a daily routine early on if your children are with you. 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. If you have other people sleeping nearby your campsite, do not bother them by leave your awning lights on during the entire night. Instead, use a timer that you can set to turn the lights off after a certain time period. You won't bother others with your lights, by doing this. A great tool to take whenever you go camping is duct tape. If you get a cut, Duct tape is a very versatile tool that can be used from anything to mend broken tent poles, to patching up tent holes, all the way to serving as a band aide.
