Are you looking to experience a trip out into the nearest campground? Whether you want to go for an overnight adventure or plan to stay a week, you need to plan. The following advice can ensure that your next camping trip is as relaxing and fun as you desire.
Find your shelter before nightfall. Once things go dark, it is very difficult to find firewood, pitch your tent and prepare some food. This is especially true if you are an urbanite whose sight is not used to the pitch dark woods. Avoid this by finding shelter before the moon is out.
Dryer lint makes wonderful kindling for starting your campfire. Start collecting the lint about a month prior to your trip from the filter in your tumble dryer several weeks before your camping adventure. Hang a plastic bag beside your dryer and collect the lint into it. This allows you to just get your kindling and leave when it is time to go.
Emergency kits are one of the most important things to bring on a good thing to have prepared for any camping trip. Take precautions for wildlife too, and take precautions for them.
These small luxuries can really brighten your day!
There may be spiders or bears near you that could pose a threat to your safety. Every camping trip has a few dangers to be aware of.
When you find your camping spot, pitch your tent on the softest and most level ground you are able to find. Choosing a slanted or rocky area to camp at can make your tent. Always lay down some tarp in order to stop water damage to the tent.
You should now be better prepared to plan for your trip. You should have noticed that many of the things that need to be planned for a week long stay must also be planned for the overnight adventure. When you start your planning this very day for your next trip, you will camp then appreciating your preparations.
