Whether you are going to camp alone or you are going to be with your family, camping will surely give you a great time. In order for you to make your camping adventure, more memorable, more fun, and safer, read the details below:
Do not hike alone
This may sound impossible as there are times when you would just want to be alone. But it is safer for you if you are going to hike with a companion. There is a great tendency that you will get lost, especially if you are amazed with the beauty of nature. Another possibility is you can get injured by slipping. In moments like these, it is best to have somebody whom you can rely on. Even if you have a mobile phone, you may not be able to use it in calling for help as signals may fade away.
Identify the things which can be seen in the campsite
When camping, you may never know if the weather will be at your side, or not. In case you will encounter extreme weather, you need to be prepared. This is important if you have kids with you. You should locate the places near you like the gas station, ranger station, as well as the nearest hospital so that you will know where to go when problems will arise.
Make sure your dog has tick protection
Lots of campers want to bring their dogs with them. Make sure that they are protected from. Bugs survive in the forests, and many flea treatments do not extend protection to include ticks, so ask your vet before departing if your dog has everything he needs and what you should do for proper tick prevention and removal.
You should have more wood
Woods are important when camping. When you cook foods, you will need woods when you don’t have a stove. At night, you will also need woods to keep you well lighted and warm. Don’t worry if there will be lots of woods which you will leave behind after camping. Just consider those as your gift to the next campers.
Be careful when creating your fire
When creating a fire, you should not do it near your tent. Even if this tip is simple, many campers still neglect this. As a result fire accident happens in the woods. As much as possible, create your fire 15 feet away from your tent and equipment.
Prevent discomfort by bringing a pad
A pad can be placed under your sleeping bag. This will serve as your protection from the uneven and hard ground as well as from stones and sticks. In this way, you will enjoy your sleep while you are in the middle of the forest.
Lastly, each one of us is responsible in protecting Mother Nature. We can be able to do this is we won’t allow our things to be left unattended in the campsite especially our waste materials. Make sure that before leaving, the campsite is clean.
