When you`re done with your camping gear donate it - and some of your time - to a local scout troop. Your local youth scouting groups are always on the lookout for a helping hand from outdoor enthusiasts. You will feel great satisfaction knowing that your trusty old gear will help benefit others.
Take up camping hiking or fishing and you`ll always have a reason to be outdoors. Camping hiking or fishing is just three of the many available outdoor activities that will take you away from the normal everyday routine of life. Spending quality time outdoors is a great way to enjoy nature with family and or friends and especially the kids. Many people assume that just because they have never been a part of these activities have no equipment or know little to nothing about it they can`t go. That`s far from the truth. Its fun easier and more affordable than you might expect. It`s all about enjoying the outdoors nature and spending time outdoors.
As for general miscellaneous equipment a compass some light rope a can bottle opener a signal mirror and a first aid kit are very important. Extra batteries are a great idea as well if you have devices that require them. Just be mindful about the added weight. Finally clothing will need to be considered. If you are changing elevations the weather can change quickly as well. What started out in the 70 and 80`s can quickly turn into the 40`s and below especially as the sunsets. Don`t get caught without the proper sweaters or blankets. Likewise in the heat of the day having a good hat and sunscreen can prevent you from getting too much sun or even dehydrated. I also strongly recommend a good pair of sunglasses. Yea you guessed it; I forgot those too. Now that you are armed with these basic hiking and camping tips my hope is that you don`t make the same mistakes that I have made. If you plan appropriately and are well-equipped your experience should be safe and enjoyable. So no more excuses get out there and take on the great outdoors and have a blast doing it.
