Things To Remember When You Go Camping

How You Can Enjoy Yourself While Camping There's not a whole lot that can beat a good camping trip. Nature and fresh air are two of the best things in the world. If you would like to camp, look at this advice first. When it comes to food, bring only what you need on a camping trip. Extra food out in the wilderness is a calling card for wild animals to come visiting your campground. If you do find that you have additional food, tie it up in cloth and handg it as high as you can in a tree away from your immediate campground. This will help keep you from unwanted animal introductions. Prior to leaving, take a few minutes to make a checklist of everything that you need. There is nothing worse than getting to a campsite and then finding out that you don't have what you need to be comfortable. A checklist is a great aid as you are packing. Before you leave so you have plenty of time, try to start getting thing's together several days. 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. Did you know that a simple mirror can save your life? A simple hand held mirror can be used to signal for help many miles away if you are camping and end up in a survival situation. Do not buy the standard glass mirror, many camping supply stores sell mirrors made of Lexan that will float and are practically unbreakable. Unless you are going to be spending a significant amount of time camping, buying expensive sleeping bags is really unnecessary. Even if your old and musty sleeping bag is rated for below freezing temperatures, it is excellent padding for the ground even when it is hot outside and you will feel comfortable sleeping on it. Pour out any water that has accumulated in your freezer each day. You want to do this to prevent the ice inside from melting into the water. It is also a good idea because any contaminants that have entered the water from foods you have in, can be poured off. Bugs do not like fire at all, so it is a good idea to keep your fire burning all night while you are sleeping. If you find that there is a huge bug problem during the day, it would help to keep a fire burning at that time as well. While camping seems synonymous with a campfire, that campfire doesn't necessarily have to be made from wood. In fact, it might be safer and easier to use a portable campfire unit powered by propane. For the most part, these units are permitted unless there is a fire ban in place. Marshmallows taste just as good from these units as they do over an open, wood-burning fire, too. 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. 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. Make sure your dog is wearing its dog license and an ID with contact information before you leave on your trip. Neglecting to do so can have tragic consequences. Check out your first aid kit, before setting out on your next camping trip. If there are any items that are missing, replace them. Remove them and replace them will a new package if any of the ointments or medications are low in quantity. Check the expiration date on topical ointments and medications and replaced any that are outdated. You should bring food on your camping trips. You should plan out what and how many meals you plan on eating before going on your trip. As far as how much food you should bring, a good rule of thumb is to only carry the amount of food that you need to prepare your meals. When camping, many people wake up in the morning, only to find out they they have left items out that are now wet. Which can hardly be avoided, this is because of the morning dew. If the weather conditions are right, dew is inevitable, so make sure you put things away. It's a good idea to maintain hygiene when camping. Items like washcloths, sponges and bowls biodegradable soaps,toothpaste and toothbrushes, baking soda, floss, and clean water can help you stay clean during your trip. You can also use hand sanitizer, rubbing alcohol, and cotton balls on non-sensitive areas. Don't use anything with fragrances since they can attract bugs. Be sure to pack several items to keep them entertained during down-times and after dark if children will be coming along on a camping trip. Playing cards, board games, crayons and papercrayons and story books will keep them from being bored long after the campfire has been put out. If you are interested in camping but are not sure if it is the right choice for you, you may want to start out with something a bit easier, like staying in a cabin or renting an RV for a weekend. It may be time to up the game to a tent if you enjoy nature with this convenience. Be sure to bring extra of everything if you have never been camping before. This is most important for things like drinks and food. Since you are inexperienced you may underestimate how much food you actually need. Remember, you will probably be very active, and therefore need more food than normal. 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 you can now tell, camping has a great deal more to offer than a tent and a night in the woods. There are certain safety precautions one must take in order to stay safe and enjoy the day.
