There’s nothing that matches the joy of camping. For people who are into outdoor fun, camping is an amazing activity. The problem is that sleeping in tents and living outdoors as good as they sound seems to be a lot of work for people. Sleeping on grounds, spending a night in a remote area seems a little off to some. Here are few ideas to help you transform your camping experience.
Setting Up is important:
When you think about Camping, the first thing that comes to your mind is setting up tents. There are a variety of tents available to suit the purpose. Always chose a tent that is suitable for the condition you will be in.
- A three-season tent is the basic and is fine for moderate temperatures.
- Three-plus season tent is a little advanced and offers warmth retention. These tents are sturdier to stand heavy winds.
- Four season tent is for extreme situations like snow or heavy winds.
Bedding; big concern:
The phobia of sleeping on grounds and being bit by an insect or something scares away a lot of people. It’s very important to have comfortable bedding. You can use anything, sleeping pad or cot. This measure will not only make you comfortable but spare you the torture of uneven or cold ground.
There are types of sleeping pads:
- Self-inflating pads which inflate on their own upon the valve being opened.
- Air sleeping pad needs you to blow it or use a pump.
- Closed cell foam pad, a little stiff but can be used without inflating.
Time to chill:
After a day’s work, you would want to get back to the camping area and relax. Bonfires are an ideal thing to do. You can get some camping chairs or hammock (hang it between two trees). Perfect combination, bonfire, hammock, good music, and a good read. It sounds perfect, doesn’t it?
Food is life:
Needless to say, you cannot go camping without food. It’s important to make proper arrangements for food. Get yourself a cooler, can hold ice for a couple days. Camping grill is a great idea as who wouldn’t like a little-grilled meat after a tiring day. Get yourself a pan or pot, boiling water or making yourself a cup of coffee becomes easy.
Feel like home:
Comfortable beds, safe tents, good food, amazing music and a loved one, perfect, isn’t it? You must be thinking that camping is done to get a little time off our busy schedules and stay away from the monotony of returning to the same apartment. But, comfort, anywhere and everywhere is a necessity. You cannot enjoy a trip unless you feel safe, which is why it’s suggested to make your tent a little homely and welcoming.
Do the basics right and your camping trip can never be a failure. What is stopping you now? Take a break and enjoy a couple weeks away from the bustling crowd of cities and your workload.
