Camping 101

One of my favorite things to do when I have a writing assignment is camping. Camping is a blast in my opinion. If you are a little nervous about going camping if come to the right spot. All you really need is some confidence and a little good advice to get you going. This article will give you camping tips to help you on your trip.

Get reservations to your camping spot as soon as you can. Many people enjoy going camping with their families, especially in the summer. A guy I know over at movers near me goes with his family every summer a few times. If you are able to reserve your Spot in the winter, it greatly increases your chances of getting a good spot at a great rate. Saving money can help you have more fun while on your vacation.

Be sure to take along some wood to help you with your campfire. It’s possible that only would you can find at the campsite is wet, so it will not burn. By bringing your own supply, you will build to get that fire up and going quickly.

If you have children camping with you, bring along a few shovels for them to play with. My kids have always enjoyed playing in the dirt at the campsite. If your vehicle has enough room, you can also bring them a bucket and other toys to help keep them entertained for hours. This will give you the time you need to get your camping gear unpacked, set up your tent, and do all the other things you need to do for settling in.

As you schedule your campsite, be sure to ask about a water supply. You may have to walk some to find water but, then again, your campsite may have water nearby. Be sure to bring something to carry water with you if you are going on a hike while camping. You may also want to consider packing iodine tablets if you’re hiking a long distance. That way, you can treat any water before drinking it and help prevent dysentery.

See, doesn’t that sound simple? Hopefully, that little bit of basic knowledge has given you the confidence you need to start planning your next camping trip. Oh, and don’t forget your writing gear. You may enjoy the outdoor so much on your camping trip that you forget to write.
