Super Camping Suggestions For Making A Great Trip

Not The Outdoorsy Type? These Tips Could Help You Enjoy Camping Whether you sleep in a tent, an RV or under the stars, taking a camping trip is a great way to escape the hustle and bustle of day-to-day life. Getting away from it all can be rejuvenating and fun with just a little know-how. Here are a number of tips for enhancing and improving your next camping trip. Give them the opportunity to assist you when you get to the campground if you are traveling with children. They can carry gear, support you as you set up the tent and look for firewood. Not only will it keep them busy and out of trouble, it will be fun for them as well. Don't leave your lighting on overnight, if you are close to others, as a courtesy to other campers. Pack a timer that you can attach to your lights that will automatically shut them off after a certain time. Leaving lights on overnight is a popular complaint among most American campers! Pack a blanket if you have a toddler. You can lay it out on the use and ground it as a makeshift play area. Bringdolls and cars, or whatever items your child is into. They can play without getting too dirty and you can instruct them that they need to keep their toys on the blanket for safekeeping. This will help to keep things from getting too spread out. If there are children with you on your trip, pack a few shovels. Kids love nothing better than digging in the dirt, and having the right accessories is crucial. Bring a bucket too if you have room. The children will happily entertain themselves in the dirt while you unpack, set up camp and do everything that you need to do. If you are going camping, be sure to have a first aid kit. Pack an emergency kit that contains basic first aid supplies as well as anything needed for the specific location in which you are camping. You should bring things like a flare and antivenom as well, you never know what might happen. 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. 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. Make sure that the cooler you are taking with you is air tight. You do not want your food to spoil because the cooler was allowing the cool air to get out. Store your cooler in a shaded area where the sun will not work against it. This could save your food and your stomach. Bring all necessary camping gear with you prior to going on your trip. It wouldn't be good if you forgot something you really need like your sleeping bag or a tent. Check and double check your list to ensure that you pack everything you need. Carry an additional utility knife in case your original one breaks. Utility knives serve many functions so bring along at least one. 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. 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. Make sure you secure all sources of food at night when you go to sleep. There are many animals that can frequent campgrounds at night and scavenge your food, especially when left open and unattended for hours. You don't want to wake up to your food scattered everywhere, and you left with a shortage. Bugs and mosquitoes are a common camping annoyance. A good natural way to keep bugs away from your body is by using an orange peel, even though you could buy a commercial repellent with chemicals. Rub the inside of the peel on your legs and arms. This is a inexpensive, responsible way to repel annoying pests. Make sure you always have a source of clean water with you. When camping, you can't always trust that a natural water source is clean enough to drink from without boiling the water first. So, keep a canteen filled with water at your side during any daily adventure. In the evenings, boil any spring water for ten minutes to create clean water reserves for the next day. Be aware of the wildlife where you are setting up camp. You do not want to set up in a place where the racoons, skunks 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. A polite thing you can do for the campers who follow you is leaving wood for them. If there is none on the campsite, especially when it is dark, think about how difficult it can be to find some wood. So, be courteous to others and leave as much wood as you can. 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. The more you know, the more successful your camping trips will be, as with any activity.
