Smart Ideas: Camping Revisited
November 14, 2017
Just before you push through with your camping, the right outdoor camping equipment is going to be crucial. People are putting together camping lists so they will come prepared and would have the best time and experience as they go camping. If you don’t plan things out, there is a high possibility that you’d face the consequences of coming back home earlier than what you and everyone else is expecting from the trip.
Additionally, this means not only to remember the things like flashlights and your first aid kit but also, you should prepare for the unpredictable such as a warm sleeping bag. The reason for this is that, as you go on higher altitudes on your hike, the temperature will slowly drops and sleeping at night may be inconvenient. You can comfortably sleep after an all day hike with a warm sleeping bag.
The tent is of course something that you should not forget when you are compiling your camping list for outdoor camping equipment. Try to avoid the temptations of buying cheaper tents. It is true that they may be inexpensive to look but sooner or later, you will regret your decision of buying them especially when you get caught in the rain, have issues with the flooring and end up ripping the zippers. Quality tents are normally priced at 50 dollars or sometimes higher depending on the size, which is what you should be looking for.
This is the part to which it could be confusing to some. Every tent will tell customers the number of people that it is able to fit but don’t believe it as it’s just a rough guideline. If you would just check the box closely, you will notice that the people are sitting next to each. In real life, we of course need sufficient space to be able to move around. Apart from that, you certainly be thinking of the gears, clothes and other things you have which you want to protect. For this reason, it will be smart that you buy a tent that’s one size bigger at least to the number of people who will use it.
A cooler or an ice chest is the next thing that you should include into your camping list. If you are currently on the market planning to buy this outdoor camping equipment, then you must take time prior to buying one. Try finding coolers which have double walled construction, provides a comfortable grip and secure lids. Think of the number of days that you’re planning to be out, you’re going to need milk for breakfast, lunch meat as well as condiments and dinner meals.
It is a good start to invest in a 36 quart chest if you are going for a weekend trip or even a short overnight. 54 quart chest or bigger would be a smart move if you will stay for long.
