Things To Remember When You Go Camping

Go Camping In Style With These Tips 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. Try to get to the campsite well before nightfall. This allows you to get a feel for the lay of the land and gives you the opportunity to set up camp while you can still see what you are doing. It lets your children feel a little more comfortable with their surroundings because they will have time to explore in addition. If you plan to go camping, you don't have to be a boy scout to be prepared. One of the first rules is to be sure to tell somebody where you will be. If there isn't an exact location to give, then give a general idea of major roads nearby or even GPS coordinates if you know them and give a timeframe of when you plan to return. Before you get to your campsite, get everything you need ready for your meals. This initial trip to the store should be all that you need to do if you are only camping for a few days. Stock up on nonperishable items, too. You don't want you or your family members to be hungry on your trip. If you will be camping somewhere that is very far away from civilization, then make sure you have told several people where you will be as well as how long you are intending to stay. Ask them to call you on the day you are supposed to return to ensure your safety. 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. Consider purchasing inexpensive walkie-talkies to take with you on your next camping trip to provide a way to keep in touch with everyone in your party in areas where cell phone reception may not be available. This can be especially important if you are camping with children and need to keep track of their whereabouts. Bring supplies for 'Smores. 'Smores are an integral part of any camping trip. Simply pack grahamchocolate and crackers, and marshmallows. Toast the marshmallows, then make it the filling to a graham cracker/chocolate sandwich. When you have a 'Smore, you will want 'some more'--bring enough for everyone to have at least two of them! 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. Use specialty camping pillows when camping. It can get hot and sticky when it is humid outside if you take along a regular bedroom pillow. They can mildew quickly after absorbing moisture. Camping pillows, on the other hand, possess a protective coating that prevents that from happening. If you're bringing your dog along for the camping trip, make sure it's wearing its tags. Losing track of a pet can be heartbreaking. Before you leave on your trip, make sure your dog is wearing its dog license and an ID with contact information. Neglecting to do so can have tragic consequences. Be mindful of the environment when you go camping. Whatever you carry into a campsite, make sure that you remove it when you leave. This will eliminate litter and protect the natural environment. The area you have inhabited should be as clean as you would want it if you were just arriving to camp there that day before leaving. A utility knife is one of the most useful camping tools. Utility knives have many uses in a campers tool kit. It may even be a good idea to bring an extra in case your first one gets lost. 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 out camping, it is a great idea to put your tent together at home. Some tents can seem very complicated, and you do not want to get stuck in the dark without your tent being assembled. If you practice when you are at home, you will already have the experience of setting it up, and it will go smoothly. Duct tape can be a camper's very best friend. When disaster strikes on a camping trip, a roll of heavy-duty duct tape will usually save the day. If the tent fabric needs patching in the rain, duct tape will hold back the water. When tent poles need reinforcing, the duct tape will provide support. Do you have holes in your tennis shoes? Duct tape right over it. Whatever the mishap, a roll of duct tape is sure to help! Plan to dress in layers. You may find that the weather conditions can change rapidly. A cold morning can turn into a very hot afternoon. Nighttime can often be much colder than afternoons and mornings. The layers will allow you to adapt your attire to the changing weather throughout the day. A great tool to take whenever you go camping is duct tape. 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 if you get a cut. 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. As mentioned previously, it's important to have a little knowledge about camping.
