Plan your next trip to camping
It is useful to spend time in the fresh air. This idea, of course, occur to many of us, but not all can find the opportunity to do so. A recent study has found that people spend 25% less time outdoors now than in the eighties. The people confined to their homes, despite the fact that they know how the trip to the campsite nice and useful for recuperation. Often the preparation for this mini-trip is turning into quite a stir. There are a couple of secrets of successful organization of the trip to the campsite, which greatly simplify training, recreation and, accordingly, make such visits more frequent. Offer 5 ways to help simplify planning a trip to the campsite and release you from confusion in the head:
1. Pick a campsite online. One of the reasons why people don’t camp, they just don’t know where to go. Fortunately, the Internet has made the choice of location for camping a lot easier. In all countries there are web sites on state parks. Most have maps that will allow you to consider the area where you would like to stay. Besides, we have Google Maps which will help you to consider in detail the place you are going to go. Pick a Park or a meadow, based on their own preferences. Some parks offer such facilities as toilets, water pumps and showers, and the other, a wild place located at a distance and as simple as possible.
In addition, to determine the distance that you have to overcome. You don’t want to arrive tired. Ideally, your trip should not last more than three hours.
If you find it hard to choose a Park, steps to the local store for travel. Because their employees are real enthusiasts of travel and outdoor activities, they are able to give you good advice.
2. Book a place for the camp before departure. It is recommended to do when visiting the state parks, hotels, campgrounds and hotels are located in the «wild» places. Popular places can fill up faster than you can imagine. The last thing you want to do is spend a few hours on the search space and discover that there is no space.
3. Keep all equipment for the camp in one place. Part of the hustle and bustle in preparation of the trip to the campsite is the need to rummage through the pantry in search of the necessary things to run at the last minute to shop for needed things. To avoid this, just keep the most useful things for camping in one place. As soon as you want to go camping, you can simply load the bag with all the necessary devices and set to go. In this bag, or what have you, should be the following things (some of which can vary depending on the time of year, location Park, view camping. But these things are the main):
- sleeping bags;
- first aid kit;
- additional battery power;
- a little broom;
- the tarpaulin;
- wet wipes;
- garbage bags;
4. Write a checklist that you can refer to before each trip. To make a list of things that will not be stored in your bag or to be Packed right before the trip. This list may include:
- folding knife;
- deck chairs or sun beds;
- firewood (if you think it will not be enough the campsite);
5. Prepare for holiday meals. Admittedly, one of the joys of camping is cooking a wonderful meal over a campfire. This idea can add a dozen or even more things to your list, and you will be forced to bring their own rags and cleaning products to clean pots and pans. It would be a difficult puzzle or even a problem. If you want to spend camping just for the weekend, need to plan two meals that don’t involve cooking and a large set of needed products. Here is a sample menu of my wife, which I always use when we go on Friday evening on the nature of noon Sunday:
— the food on Friday evening: dinner — semi-finished product in foil. We prepare lunch and wrap it in foil, before leaving it stored in the refrigerator. To cook it you just put the foil package in the bonfire. The only thing that you need to eat is fork.
— The food on Saturday night: the hot dog. No tools needed. Just cook your meat on a stick.
For dessert in the evenings, we eat snacks. Another time we just snack chips, crackers, etc. No pots, no pans, no cleaning.
