Make The Most Of Camping With These Tips
As the weather warms, your family has the opportunity to go into the great outdoors and spend some quality time together. Camping is a favorite summer activity because it affords the opportunity to unwind and enjoy natural beauty and good company far away from the distractions of normal daily life. To help you make the most of your next trip, here are a few camping tips.
- Cooler: Your cooler will work best if you pre-cool it for at least six hours before you use it. When you do pack it, pay with block ice (it lasts longer) and only put already refrigerated or frozen food and drinks so you do not waste ice cooling down warm items.
- Storage: When you are not using your camping gear, put it in a plastic storage bin. Rather than unpacking the bin before you head out, bring the whole thing to your campsite. That way, you will have a space for food, shoes, and more that is protected from moisture and insects.
- Sleeping Bags: Leave your sleeping bags unzipped and open during the day. This will allow them to dry, releasing all of the moisture they absorbed from your body during the night.
- Lighting: Pack headlamps for each person going on your trip so you can all have the light you need to get to the bathroom without hassle. You can also DIY a lantern at your campsite by filling a milk jug with water, putting your head lamp around it, and flipping it so the light shines into the jug.
