You can have a lot of fun camping, even if you are all grown up now. With the proper advice, you can make your camping experience enjoyable. Here are some tips to help you out.
Camping provides the inevitable experience that you, your family and most of your possessions will probably get dirty. If you are prepared for that before you go, it will cause less stress when it happens. Take this as an opportunity to enjoy the freedom, let your hair down, and get a little dirtier than usual. After all, you can be normal at home.
Be sure that your tent will comfortably fit everyone that you will be sharing it with to have a good trip. A bigger tent means easier movement, which can be useful when you have to urinate at night.
Make sure that your bags include oranges, since these double up as both a handy and healthy snack but also serve as an organic and natural repellant of mosquitoes. After enjoying the sweet juicy fruit, use the inside of the peel to rub on skin for a chemical free insect repellant.
Make sure to bring duct tape on your camping trip to fix almost any problem. You can patch holes in your tent, your mattress or your shoes, or secure your tent poles, seal mosquito netting and much, much more.
Purchase some pillows that are made for camping prior to going on your trip. Standard bed pillows tend to get sticky in humid weather. They also absorb moisture out of the air and can mildew quickly. Pillows made especially for camping have a protective outer layer that prohibits moisture absorption.
All you need to enjoy camping as much as you did as when you were a kid is sheer will and a solid knowledge base. Use this article to get some creative ideas in order to plan a camping trip that you will love and remember always.
