So we’ve heard that you want to go camping. Have you already decided if you want to have all your gear in a backpack, hike and set up your tent in a remote destination? Or do you want to drive to a developed campground and have a much more comfortable setup where you can eat on picnic tables and be sure that the kids are safe? Or maybe you have an RV so that you don’t even have to set up a tent anymore when you reach a campsite that allows RVs? Whatever type of camping you choose, you must make sure that everyone in your company including yourself is safe and sound. After choosing the type of camping setup, researching your destination, and knowing what meals you will prepare, there are still more steps for you to follow in order to have that fun, well-thought-out camping trip. Next on the list is to be prepared for any weather conditions. The weather is a variable that is beyond your control. It doesn’t mean that you aren’t capable of preparing for the best and the worst weather conditions. If you ever get drenched in rain water when camping, you won’t really be able to dry it off immediately or before your camping trip ends. When your clothes and your gear get wet, you can expect that your tent will be damped and you may have a cold, uncomfortable sleeping condition. Of course, research the weather forecast beforehand. If you don’t have any date yet, choose a safe date where it’s less likely to rain. But whatever the forecast is, bring a jacket that is waterproof and lightweight. It can ensure that your clothes inside won’t get wet. You can consider wearing waterproof trousers and shoes too. Make sure to pack base layers that can keep you warm and a warm outer layer. advnture.com suggests to pack a fleece jacket which you can even use as an extra pillow when you’re about to sleep. For car campers, you can bring a tarpaulin with you or a pop-up tent to help deal with rain and harsh sunlight. Before you go on the camping trip, take time to try your gear out. Make sure all of your gear works and that you know every step on how it works. It won’t do you any bad if you practice how to set up your tent and check if your sleeping pad leaks air. You want to make sure that your headlamp has enough batteries too or is fully charged. If you haven’t been using it or it’s your first time to use it, make sure to check also if your camping stove is functioning well. Check how much fuel you have in it and if it will bne enough. Check your lighters and see if your first aid kit has everything you need. This might take up time but it will also save you hours and the hassle once you get to your camping site. Plus, you will have time to replace any gear or equipment that is not working properly. And of course, when it’s time for you to pack, you can make sure that you don’t forget anything if you have a packing list. Write down everything you need based on the type of camping that you will do and what your chosen destination requires. You need your tent, camping stove, clothes and you must not forget also to bring your bug spray and headlamps. And to make sure that all of these fits in your bag, do not cram and pack ahead of your trip. In camping, you would be using different gears and equipment.
