Are you planning on leaving behind the comforts of your home and travel a place where you can admire nature and for just a few days or even one day, you let the explorer in you out? Do you want to go and have an experience that will blow your mind away? Are you planning on learning to love the earth that allows us to live?
Do you want to go camping?
Well of course you are that is why you are here. Maybe you have decided to go, maybe you are just curious about it, but regardless of why you are here, it is important that you get the chance to know about certain things that you should remember before you set camp.
So what are these things? Well they are mentioned below.
Choose a good location for your camp
Depending on where you want to set camp, the best place would change. If you are setting up camp in an official camp ground, you would want to find a place further away from the entrance. This is because you could avoid having late campers blare their vehicle’s horn and disturbing your sleep at night. Another important to note is that choosing a spot next to a water source is very good, in a camp ground though this might not be wise. Many people would keep on coming to the water source thus you would not be able to properly relax and enjoy nature. Instead you would have to deal with noisy chit chatter and yelling.
The best place you can choose would be one which is on an elevated level and has grass. It should at least be about two hundred meters away from the water source and the camping toilet. Furthermore choose a campsite which is sunnier and has a good steady breeze, as this would have lesser mosquitos. See this post if you are looking for a perfect camping toilet.
If you are setting up camp somewhere else than a campground, choose a place that is dry and closer to the water source. It should preferably be in an open place so as to avoid any unwelcome night visitors such as foxes and bears.
Take whatever is important
The worst thing that can happen to you when you go camping is realizing that you have not brought important things. Be it matchsticks, rope, or even an air bed -you never know when the back ache would act up-whatever you deem important should be brought along. However remember that whatever you bring should be necessary and not there to entertain you therefore game boys and kindles can wait at home.
Therefore when you want to camp do take note of the above two things. They could go a long way in making sure that you would enjoy the whole experience.
