Are you planning to go on a camping adventure? If so, are you prepared for the usual challenges that nature can throw your way? It may seem basic, but it is necessary to keep yourself prepared ahead of time. Keep reading for some top camping tips.
Pick a sleeping bag which is appropriate for the season. If you’re camping in the heat of summer, a sub-zero bag just isn’t comfortable or appropriate. On the other hand, you don’t want a lightweight summer sleeping bag if you’re going to be out in the frigid temperatures of wintertime. You may even get hypothermia.
While you may think that nature will offer up enough wood to keep your fire embers burning, it could quite possibly be wet wood that doesn’t really want to burn. It’s always a good idea to take along some wood of your own and keep it in a dry place.
Always pack and carry a survival kit. This kit should include water-purifying tablets, a first-aid kit, flare gun, survival knife and waterproof matches. This kit could be the difference between life and death. If you don’t take it with you on excursions it will serve you no good.
If you’ve brought the kids along, feed them a “jungle” breakfast. Take juice boxes, mini cereal boxes and fruit and tie the food to trees. Let the kids go out hunt for their breakfast. This is a wonderful way to spice up the whole camping trip.
Create a proper emergency kit if you plan to go camping. Pack an emergency kit that contains basic first aid supplies as well as anything needed for the specific location in which you are camping. For example, if you are camping in an area that may have poison ivy, make sure you pack hydro-cortisone.
Duct tape can be used to solve many problems on camping trips. It’s easy to use, can hold out moisture and will even fix a leak or a broken shoe!
