A How-To Guide For Successful Camping Vacations

How You Can Enjoy Yourself While Camping Many people around the world will tell you that they live for camping trips. Camping is something that everyone should try at least once in their lifetime. If you show up to your camping destination without at least a little knowledge, though, but camping can be a bummer. Read on to get yourself prepared! Water is critical for your survival when hiking in the backcountry. Carry water purification tablets with you or some sort of water filter that is capable of filtering out bacteria. There are many different kinds available at your local sporting goods store. Whenever you are looking for a water source, make sure the water is flowing stagnant water can kill you if not treated properly. Let those you are camping with help pick the site. Talk about where you want to camp. The options are plenty, so do your research! To make your decision easier, pick a few favorites and then vote on the final choice. 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! When you get to your campsite, take your family out on a walk. If you have children, everyone will need a chance to stretch their legs after getting out of the car, particularly. The hike will be a good chance to get everyone excited about the trip and involved with nature. When you reach your campsite, the first thing, you should do is to start collecting wood for your fire. You won't feel like it later on, and if you wait until dark you will have a harder time finding the kind of wood you need to keep a fire going. Do it right away. Know what is available in the area around your campsite. You may get lucky and have beautiful weather the entire time. However, you may also face inclement weather, too. Have a backup plan in case you need a diversion. This is particularly crucial if you have kids, but adults need a little entertainment as well! It is important to be aware of any dangers commonly found there, before you plan to camp in an new area. Some examples of dangers are flash floods or poisonous spiders. Every camping area has different dangers that you should be aware of. You need to maintain your cleanliness while camping. You can keep yourself clean, although good hygiene is difficult when you are camping sometimes. A bottle of hand sanitizer is excellent to have so you can clean hands before eating. You can also use rubbing alcohol on areas of your body that are not sensitive. A mild biodegradable soap and a sponge can be used to take mini-baths when water resources are low. If you have a young child with you, do the math in advance with respect to how much baby food or formula they will need. Make sure you have supplies for them that will last the entire length of your trip. There are no guarantees that a store near your campsite will have these items or will have the type of items that you want. Camping is hard work, but it's also very much fun. Once you figure out what you're doing, the rewards are numerous. You get to experience nature and the outdoors picnics are always fun, and you get a chance to sleep under the stars. Nothing beats some of the experiences you can have camping. 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. When camping, most people enjoy relaxing around a campfire. To prevent your fire from becoming out of control, you should incorporate a few safety practices. First, of all, build your fire away from bushes and trees so that sparks from your fire will not start a forest fire. You will also want to use a circle of rocks to contain your campfire. Do not ever leave your fire unattended. Before leaving your campsite, make sure your campfire has been totally extinguished and that there are no remaining hot embers. Take along a battery operated radio when camping. A radio will keep you up-to-date on any late-breaking weather and news reports. A radio will also give you entertainment during those quiet evenings sitting around the campfire. Or if you prefer, pack a guitar for you and your campers' enjoyment. 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. 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 zippers and seams that are double sewn. It is also important to make sure your tent has rain protection. Choose a tent with a rain fly. Be aware of the wildlife where you are setting up camp. You do not want to set up in a place where the skunks, racoons and opossums have already called home. Learn the signs of the animals so you can find a safe place to set up camp without worrying as much about these animals at night. It is important that you dress appropriately for the outdoors when you go on a camping trip. Dressing in layers is the key! This proves perfect when temperatures increase in the summertime, or cool down in the wintertime. Don't forget to pack some rain gear in case the conditions turn wet. 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.
