Going Camping? Here's What You Should Know

A How-To Guide For Successful Camping Vacations Camping is an activity that can be enjoyed by the entire family. Whether you're taking a family trip, or heading out to the wilderness with some close friends, camping can bond you to your loved ones like nothing else. There are many things to consider before venturing out on your next camping trip, however. Pre-cool your ice chest by filling it with loads of ice, at least six hours prior to departure. When you are about to leave, pack up your refrigerated cooled drinks and block ice, not cubed. Popping room temp beverages will take up valuable ice-life, and the cubes will melt much quicker than a block! Plan accordingly when it comes to food. It is a hassle to make room in your car for all the food you need. However, proper nourishment is crucial when you are in the woods. Also, items that are fairly inexpensive in your local store often carry a higher price tag near camping sites. Bringing enough food means that you will save money and keep everyone in your family in a good mood. While a campfire gives off enough light in the general area around it, you want to be sure you take along a flashlight on your camping trip if you plan to venture outside of the campfire's glow. This is a definite safety precaution you don't want to ignore. It can be quite dark out there in the woods at nighttime. While you have this vision of a fun-filled camping trip, many times scrapes and cuts just seem to come with all that fun. Be sure you take a first-aid kit with you into nature because accidents just happen, and it's always better to be safe than sorry. You will have the peace of mind that you are prepared if something does happen, although hopefully, it will stay packed safely away. When you bring your dog on a camping trip, make certain he has adequate tick protection. If your dog has everything he needs and what you should do for proper tick removal and prevention, bugs thrive in forests, and many flea treatments do not extend protection to include ticks, so ask your vet before departing. 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. It's much easier to ask for help from somebody who was courteous enough to introduce themselves if something goes awry during the trip for anyone. While kids love camping, they need to have activities planned for them. When you are in the woods with nothing around but trees, they may become bored. The may not be accustomed to activities like pitching a tent or fishing. Take the time to demonstrate the activities prior to leaving, especially if they've never really lived outdoors. Avoid severe weather when going camping, and pay attention to forecasts. It is horrible trying to pitch a tent in the rain, and not much fun sitting in a tent during a rainstorm. It is equally as disturbing approaching a muddy campsite and trying to make a weekend out of it. Take along a fire extinguisher! You never know when a fire can spread. Being prepared to put it out quickly could save your life, your gear and the woods around you. Find one that is capable of putting out fires of all kinds to be sure you are prepared to extinguish them all. Pack things like oranges when you go camping. They are nutritious, and they also keep mosquitoes away. Use the discarded peels to rub your exposed skin, and the insects will stay away from you. Choose your campsite carefully. The location in which you're camping can make all the difference. Before you make any plans, do plenty of research. What is the weather like? Does the campsite have specific rules? How crowded will the campsite be? Poor planning can make for a miserable camping experience. Do not take anything that belongs in nature with you when you leave. Have fun and take pictures, but when you are loading up the car, make sure pinecones, rocks and other objects remain where they are. This is one of the unspoken rules of camping. Everyone should have the same opportunity to enjoy these things. People who are going camping would be wise to stay away from axes to do their chopping. In many conditions, particularly when it is wet outside, or you are tired, an ax is a one-way ticket to the hospital, although sure an Ax might make you feel manly. Before you go, a great idea when planning your camping trip is to make a list of everything you need. You can cross it off your list, as you pack each item. This is really essential because you do not want to be stuck blowing up your air mattresses because you forgot to pack an air pump. Beef jerky and trail mix are great foods to bring on your camping trip. After a long day of outdoor activities, you will often feel too drained of energy to prepare a hot meal, so the availability of nutrient-filled snacks, such as trail mix an beef jerky, can be a real lifesaver. So if you do not eat them while camping you can enjoy them for months to come, as an added benefit these snacks have a long shelf life. Before you go camping so that you know what kind of clothing you will need, always check the weather forecast. You could be very cold if a front blow through, and you did not pack jackets and blankets. In addition, consider packing some rain ponchos in case any storm's blow through. If you will be camping in a warm area, you may think it is not necessary to bring a nice sleeping bag. That is a huge mistake as many areas cool off considerably at night. Secondly, a sleeping bag helps to mitigate uneven or rocky ground, allowing for more comfortable sleep. Pack your food properly to avoid food poisoning. Bring preserved foods and foods that don't spoil easily. Bring a lot of ice, and don't forget to drain your cooler. Now you know that nothing is as great as camping. The scenery, being around nature, and the fresh air are all great things to enjoy while camping.
