Planning Your Trip

photo-1469208886418-947b950c50bbWhere Will You Be?

You don’t have to be a scout to be prepared, if you plan to go camping. One of the first rules is to be sure to tell somebody where you will be. If there isn’t an exact location to give, then give a general idea of major roads nearby or even GPS coordinates if you know them and give a timeframe of when you plan to return. It is essential for your safety to make sure to let someone know you are going. Give a relative, a friend or neighbor the name of the campsite, if you are using one. If you are headed out on a less structured trip, give your contact a general idea of where you are headed and a timeline for your return. If something goes wrong, there will be someone to know where to look for you. If you will be camping somewhere that is very far away from civilization, then make sure you have told several people where you will be as well as how long you are intending to stay. Ask them to call you on the day you are supposed to return to ensure your safety.

If you are new to camping, then don’t just start out alone, simply carting along a rucksack with a few sandwiches and a bottle of soda in it, especially if you want to go rough camping or into the backwoods. It can be quite dangerous if you don’t know what you are doing, so it is important to bring along an experienced friend to help you learn the ropes, or else go with an organised group for your first few times..

Before you leave on your trip, use your backyard to help you work out the kinks in your camping equipment. Put up your tent to make sure you know (or remember!) how to put it up. This will also allow you to see if anything needs to be patched up. It will make it that much easier for you when you get to the campsite. And if you have new gear, figure it out BEFORE you get out there in the wild blue yonder. The practice does really help. No one wants to get to the campground, only to find out that they don’t know how to use something or set up their own tent. Practice with your new gear before you ever set foot on the campground.

Make A List

Make a list of things you need to take with you before you go camping. You may think you are great at packing, but little else is worse than being out in the middle of the woods and realizing you forgot your allergy medication. Sit down and create a comprehensive list of everything you might need during the week before your camping trip.  Try to start getting things together several days before you leave so you have plenty of time.

Check your gear ahead of time. If your canteen is beginning to smell musty, you can give it a good cleaning with baking soda. Place a little bit of water in your canteen, and then add three tablespoons of baking soda. Shake gently, let it sit for sixty minutes, and then rinse with water. Your canteen will be refreshingly clean!

When you are planning a camping adventure, make sure you pack the photo-1478071735433-5d8f19ad0fcaappropriate clothing for your trip. Check the weather forecast and bring the clothing that will be needed on your trip. If it is going to be cold, make sure you have the appropriate coats, gloves, and shoes. Remember to also pack a rain poncho no matter what the weather forecast predicts.

Campground

If you’re new to camping, you’re going to want to arrive early to the campground. The reason for this is you will be new to the campground site and rules, and this will slow you down. You don’t want to be stuck setting up camp after dark, so just arrive a little earlier than you usually would.

A little planning saves a heap of trouble later.

Top 5 Camping Gadgets

photo-1477512076069-d31eb021716fCamping out can be so much more pleasant and safer if you have gadgets that can help. Once you have the necessities for camping, it’s perfectly fine to begin upgrading your kit with items that make life more convenient or that contribute to your safety and need for food, water and shelter.  While there are many modern gadgets available there are five that no one should be without unless you want to want to live on the edge.

How long does your cell phone battery last without charging? Most phones these days have so many applications working on them that they need to be charged every 24 hours. If you are not on a campsite, that can be difficult to arrange. A solar powered charger for your cell phone and your radio will help ensure that you can call for help, or check on changing weather conditions if you need to. There are 3-in-1 gadgets available that mean you can charge your cell phone, have a radio and a flashlight all contained one easy to carry gadget.photo-1477544437652-fdfbf813e056-1

Collecting wood for a fire can take time and if it’s wet, it can be hard to light. You also need a lot of wood for cooking. Portable solar cookers are great gadgets to have. They set up anywhere and provide a method for you to cook on instantly. It means you can also boil water for safe drinking supplies. At extra bonus is that you can use this at home too when the power’s gone out. Of course, you have to be camping (or living) in an area with sufficient light to recharge the solar battery!

Another way of purifying your water without having to boil it or use pills is to use a UV water purification wand. These tools look like wands and purify your water in just under a minute.

If you are camping away from a camping site, then a flint and knife bracelet is the perfect pairing, if you want to build your own fire and not lug solar chargers with you. It’s a little corded bracelet that fits around your wrist and gives you immediate access to a fire starter and a sharp knife right away.

A tent hammock is another gadget can improve your comfort levels. Not only do you get protection from outside intruders like mosquitoes, but you’re lifted off the ground to protect you from water or land animals.

There are so many gadgets that can be used to make camping more comfortable, if you have the space to carry them. There are containers that create power from any form of liquid, clothes that repel bugs just based on the materials they’re made from, and solar backpacks that have a solar panel soaking up the sun while you trek around so that you can use the energy it absorbs later – these can also be used when commuting for power on the go.

Once all of your basic needs are met you could look at cool gadgets that can make your camping experience more comfortable.
