Camping can be exciting; so can beehives, rainstorms, and bears – oh my! To make your camping trip as fun and trouble-free as possible, it’s best to venture not only with the necessary gear, but also with right set of knowledge and skills. For the convenience and security, RV camping has grown in popularity. But what’s camping without facing the elements in some, albeit controlled, way?
The indoor types or those who have never camped a night in their life aren’t too likely to think of sleeping under the stars as an enjoyable experience. But for many, watching dusk turn to night in the embrace of nature can only be described as spiritual. For those on the fence, the RV is the perfect compromise.
Whether you’re trekking with nothing but a pack and a walking stick or bringing a home on wheels, proper planning is in order. Consult a pro or search the web for a list of things to bring on a camping trip. It is a good idea to lay out all your supplies when you are packing, instead of just throwing things in a bag. Especially if you’re hiking, weight can become an issue, so you’ll need to consider priorities of your items.
Staying hydrated is essential. Bring bottled water or a compact water filter or purifier tablets if you expect to need water from a natural source. Rehydration packets with electrolytes can both flavor the water and help you recover from excessive sweating. Dried foods like jerky and raisins are lighter in weight and can still provide the nutrients you need. Freeze-dried meals are also a good choice for extended hiking and camping trips.
