Whether you pitch a tent or roll up in a motor home, choosing to spend your vacation time camping can be a blast!
Make sure you plan and prepare for all of the little hazards that may arise, by checking out the following tips.
Although not essential, a machete is something that you may consider packing depending on where you are going. It is a very versatile tool in the wilderness. You can cut a trail, hack bamboo and vines for shelter, cut coconuts for water, chop firewood, and even use it as protection against wild animals.
Rain gear – 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 try and avoid the bulk of the bad weather, if possible.
Look up activities to engage in prior to getting to your destination. This will allow you to check for any deals that may be offered. Also, it will help you be more prepared when you actually get to your destination. You can find trails that may be appropriate for everyone in your family or restaurants that you would enjoy.
Clear up – Leave no trace of your outing at your campsite, for environmental reasons and as a courtesy to others. Make sure all trash is picked up, refill holes you may have dug and of course, that your campfire is completely out!
Camping is a great way to spend your vacation. It can offer great relaxation, inspiration and even teach us a lot about our environment. Keep these tips in mind as you set out on your camping adventure and remember to have fun!
