Basic survival guide in camping

By: Adventure karthi


Camping is a lot of entertaining, and a great family activity. However, many people can be frightened by camping and disinclined to attempt it. Camping can be as rural and carefree as you like, but if you are just starting out, you can feel convinced in knowing that camping is also a safe and fun way to spend a vocation.

If you have never camp out before, you may not have all the essential equipment. You should have to spend a lot of money to get started though, as many camping and outside supply stores rent tents, sleeping bags and also back packs. The equipment that you need is actually basic for a vocation camping trip. You will need a tent large enough for everybody, sleeping bags and some cloths etc.

Also you should have food for three meals plus two refreshments for each day that you will be gone. Large plastic storage bag made especially for camping are available, but you can also use plastic boxes with tight fitting covers if you plan to keep the food in your car. You will probably want to pack food that is much simple to prepare and eat, such as a loaf of bread, tuna, and granola bars etc. You may also like to try some of the canned meals such as roast beef hash. These can be heated up in a small pot over your campfire. Speaking of saucepans, you will want to take one along and a frying pan also, along with a carving knife and eating tackle.

A fundamental first aid kit should be prepared and taken along with you. It should contain a variety of adhesive bandages, antibiotic ointment, moleskin, Calamine lotion, sunscreen, and a painkiller. Any recommendation medicine that is needed by family members should also be taken along. Each camper should also have a pack or small doze sack to carry a snack and water in for hikes and outing away from the camp.

If you are going to be at an admired campground, it would not hurt to call ahead and keep a spot. Once you get to the site you should pay for your spot and get guidelines to it. Once you are there, ensure how close you are to the restroom, water supply, and firewood. Now you are ready to take out and set up your tent. Unless you are in a dry climate, you will probably want to bring along a canvas or piece of plastic to set on the ground under your tent. This layer between you and the ground can make the difference between a happy night and a moist sleepless night.
