Camping is one of the best outdoor activities that almost everyone would enjoy; however, preparing for camping means there are a lot of things to do. So, to enjoy going out with your friends or your family, below are some of the hacks, tricks, and tips that will guide you to have a fun camping experience.
- Camp stove
If one of your goals is to carry the lightest camping equipment, you may make your own camp cooktop by reusing the tin-cans instead of bringing those heavy camping stoves. However, if you find it hard to make one, you could always buy some of those light-weighted and easily carry a camp stove.
- Easy carry lamp
Most lamps can be heavy; so, carrying almost all of them can add significant weight to the current equipment load. However, you can always minimize them by using a clear or any translucent jug or disposable bottle and fill them with water. Then, with the use of a flashlight or a headlamp, light the inside of the water-filled jug to expand the glow of the light.
- Easy cooking of food
Prepping for food can be challenging. Although there are ready to eat food or there are several types of canned goods that you can bring at the camping site, you still want to eat or serve foods that are healthy. One best example is carrying ready battered eggs filled in a disposable bottle. Then, for lunch, if you are far from fishing, you may pack some pita bread or wrappers with some veggies or tuna (tuna in pouches). For dinner, you may want to pack some spices, small sauce, and some cheese from home and use some of your left over pita to make pizza. Or you could try bringing some beans, brown rice, and corn to make your own salsa, a perfect pair for your leftover pitas.
- Easy carry toiletries
Toiletries are one of the most important things that you should bring; however, bringing all of them can consume some of your camping bag’s space. So, to make it easier for you, you may cut some straw and fill them with enough amount of shampoo, toothpaste, and ointment; also, make sure to make single-use packets for each item.
- The importance of bringing some emergency toilet
To avoid unfortunate things to happen, bringing in a DIY toilet seat really comes in handy. How? If it is possible to bring a 5-gallon bucket, you may insert some heavy duty garbage bag. Then, using the bucket’s handle, insert some roll of toilet papers.
- The right fit for tent
You need one of these for camping – tent. When it comes to outdoor activity, you need to choose the right tent that will fit you or the entire family. If you chose to carry a single-person tent, make sure that you chose a tent made with quality. Camping should be filled with fun and exciting activities. So, to ensure that everything goes smoothly, you need to plan everything ahead to avoid camping pitfalls.
