A Bit Nervous About Camping? These Tips Will Set You At Ease!

Not The Outdoorsy Type? These Tips Could Help You Enjoy Camping One of the most popular recreational activities in the world is camping. There is nothing quite like heading out into the great outdoors to really feel connected to nature. If you are thinking about going camping, use the following advice to make your next camping trip more fun and enjoyable. 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. Tie it up in cloth and handg it as high as you can in a tree away from your immediate campground if you do find that you have additional food. This will help keep you from unwanted animal introductions. Get your shelter squared away before nightfall when camping. Once darkness falls, it is very difficult to set up camp. It can be even more difficult for those who are not accustomed to trying to see in complete darkness. Avoid this hazard completely, by finding adequate shelter long before the sun goes down. Keep an eye on the weather. Rain or other conditions may impact your travel time and your experience at the campsite. Make sure that you have gear that is appropriate for the weather conditions that you may face. Adjust your departure time as necessary to avoid and try the bulk of the bad weather, if possible. Make sure you have told several people where you will be as well as how long you are intending to stay if you will be camping somewhere that is very far away from civilization. Ask them to call you on the day you are supposed to return to ensure your safety. 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. When it is time for you to go to sleep, it is a good idea to put the coolers that you brought along into your vehicle. Bears have become quite savvy these days and have figured out that these coolers usually carry food items and this will attract them to your campsite. Bring supplies for 'Smores. 'Smores are an integral part of any camping trip. Simply pack grahamcrackers and chocolate, 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! Take along a box with essential supplies when you go camping. Include things like stick matches, a flashlight, cooking hand and tools cleaner. Prepare in advance. Think about all the things you might need days before you leave on your trip, especially if you will be far from any store. 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. Take along some things to entertain yourself and your family. Pack such things as cards, fishing poles or even plan for a scavenger hunt. You might want to pack a lot of things for entertainment if you brought kids along. Bringing along a cell phone with a full charge isn't a bad idea while camping. Even better, try bring along some spare batteries in case your phone's battery runs out. You do need to ensure that it does not run out of juice, although a cell phone is perhaps the most useful item of emergency equipment that you can carry with you. 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. 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. A good rule of thumb is to only carry the amount of food that you need to prepare your meals, as far as how much food you should bring. If your children are with you, establish a daily routine early on. 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. 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. Always check the weather forecast before you go camping so that you know what kind of clothing you will need. You could be very cold if a front blow through, and you did not pack blankets and jackets. In addition, consider packing some rain ponchos in case any storm's blow through. Always inform friends and family of your camping location and trip. Make sure to establish contact numbers and pertinent information on how to find you should something untoward occur. When you have a safety net like this in place, it will allow you to relax on your trip, knowing help can always find you. 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. Once you know more about camping, you can really relax and have fun when you head out into nature. As with any activity, the more you know, the more successful your camping trips will be.
